While we are hard at work adding more features to LocalizaTodo, all that work means nothing if your area of interest is not covered. If you own reception equipment you can share your data with us to provide coverage to your area.
Our IP addresses are changing!!
From July 21st we are beginning to move to a new service provider. Please make sure you update your configuration accordingly. If you have configured your systems with
our DNS name (
feed.localizatodo.com) you are already set and the change will be automatic. If you have your systems configured by using an IP address, either
update the setting to use the DNS name (if possible) or update it to the new address:
If you own AIS equipment there are lots of ways to share your data. Here are some examples of common configurations, but if none of them suits your needs, just contact email@example.com and we'll be glad to help - even by providing missing pieces of hardware or software you may need.
In general, just by forwarding your AIS data to
feed.localizatodo.com at port
2314 (using either TCP or UDP, TCP being preferred)
will get your feed on our systems. Let's see some configurations:
If your are already using ShipPlotter to receive vessel data
in your zone, sharing your feed with us is easy. Just configure ShipPlotter to forward us data: from the main menu select 'I/O settings' and locate
the 'UDP peer-to-peer output section'. Enable the output to Remote IP '22.214.171.124' (
feed.localizatodo.com) and set
Remote port as 2314. That's all.
Maybe you are using KPlex and you didn't even noticed!!
One of the most versatile Linux based NMEA multiplexers out there and used on several platforms (such as
OpenPlotter) and available for both desktop (PCs and Mac) and embedded
solutions (Raspberry PI), it allows to easily send your AIS data to LocalizaTodo. Just add the following to the program's configuration file (
kplex.conf) and you are go:
#LocalizaTodo settings [tcp] address=feed.localizatodo.com port=2314 persist=yes direction=out
Let us know you are using KPlex - just email us to firstname.lastname@example.org with your station details - and we'll provide you back the additional settings required to allow us to fully identify your traffic and show your station on the live map - along with real time coverage and stats.
If you own any kind of equipment capable of providing a standard BaseStation feed (also known as "TCP30003 protocol"), you can share it with us right away. We provide a small program that will bridge your BaseStation feed to our servers: SBSSender Compact.
SBSSender.Compact is a small, command line program written in .NET and able to run on Windows (using Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 or later) and on Linux, Mac and Raspberry PI using Mono. Being a single executable file with no other file dependencies simplifies the setup process - just copy the executable file wherever it suits you and run it.
You can download SBSSender.Compact from here - the same version is used on Windows and Linux/Raspberry. Along with the executable, you will find a readme file with the latest information on how to get started with SBSSender Compact.
Let us know you are using SBSSender - just email us to email@example.com with your station details - and we'll provide you back the additional settings required to allow us to fully identify your traffic and show your station on the live map - along with real time coverage and stats.
