🌎 ShipAtlas by Maritime Optima is a data and knowledge driven maritime software empowering you and your colleagues to work from anywhere.

To start using ShipAtlas, you will first need a user account. If you don’t have one already, you can sign up for free here: app.maritimeoptima.com

We already told you shortly about our subscription plans in the first chapter of this guide: Choose your subscription: Free Plan or Standard Plan
Here you will find information about technical part: how to make a payment and where.

ShipAtlas currently has two subscription plans - Free Plan and Standard Plan. We also have the Enterprise Plan as a solution for bigger companies (Maritime Optima Pro).

Free Plan

A FREE user account with access to the features listed on our web page and inside the product. ShipAtlas software is a FREEmium product for maritime industry, and we take care that even with the free subscription you could widely get vessel data, use the map and its additional features.

Standard Plan

This is a subscription with access to the features listed on our web page and inside the product.

You can read more about the details in the two alternatives on our web site:

First, you should register a free user account and start learning what ShipAtlas can do for you. All users are valuable to us, and we think you will find the free plan very useful.

However, we guess many of our users would like to access more accurate information about where the vessels have been trading and what's going on in specific ports.

To provide such features, we have bought access to more than 700 AIS satellites. You will be able to explore real time AIS positions, destinations and the vessel's voyage history (for all the vessels!).

How to upgrade to Standard plan from web

If you use a desktop version of ShipAtlas, first log in to your free account from a browser as you usually do: https://app.maritimeoptima.com/login

First of all you will see the small banner with remaining clicks in the upper part of the map. We include some trial features from the Standard Plan to your Free account in order to show them to you. This banner shows how many clicks on the trial features you still have.



Another way to upgrade is to look for the "Upgrade now" button on vessel sheet. You can see it when you click on the vessel and wish to see its historical AIS data or technical details.

And of course, you can upgrade from the Admin user settings.

Open "Upgrade account" and choose the right plan for you.


You can pay with VISA, Mastercard, AmEx, etc. After you have paid, you will receive an receipt in your e-mail.

After you upgrade your account, you will immediately get access to upgraded features on all your devices.
