Improve operational oversight and safety
VFI Plus features the ability to view live vessel positions on C-MAP charts, overlay weather conditions, display MARPOL zones and view all nearby vessels within a user-defined distance.
View fleet movements, past and present
VFI Plus’s unique ‘go back in time’ feature leverages GNS’s huge maritime data assets to enables users to view and verify vessel positions for specific dates and times as far back as 2015.
High quality 3-day weather forecast provides easy access to crucial parameters such as wind, wave, currents, swell, air pressure and ice plus animation to check impact on routes.
Monitor maritime risks
As a result of GNS’s collaboration with maritime security experts Risk Intelligence, VFI Plus also introduces the ability for users to view the latest maritime security issues globally, together with the option to also access premium detailed seaborne and port-related risk information.
Access AVCS Online
For shipping companies that demand the highest levels of operational safety and risk management, the ability to view exactly the same chart information as the vessels in their fleet are using for primary navigation is increasingly important. That’s why VFI Plus is also one of the first web services to offer access to the UK Hydrographic Office ENCs and Admiralty Information Overlay via AVCS Online service as a premium subscription option.
