You now know how to add and change the color of your vessels in ShipAtlas, but it is time for you to learn how to access each vessel's vessel card to learn more about that specific vessel.

In this guide you can read more about:

In Port or On Its Way? This is How You Tell the Difference

After you have turned on the vessel segments of your choice, you can view them on your map.

In addition to their color, you can separate the vessels on the move from the vessels at anchorage or a port by the shape of their icon.

  • A Rounded Shape: This indicates that the vessel is in anchorage or a port.

  • An Arrow Shape: This indicates that the vessel is sailing.

How to Access the Vessel Cards

1) View vessel card by clicking desired vessel on the map or searching by using search bar.

2) The vessel card will appear at the bottom of the screen.

  • In minimized vessel card you can see information about vessel's deadweight, the year it was built, and its current speed.

  • On map, the blue line on map shows vessel's origin (thick line) and destination/course (dotted line).

3) To access more information, click on the vessel card.

4) To access even more detailed information about the vessel and its history click on "See more" button!


Notice the notification button on the right upper corner of the vessel card?

You can use this button to get notified when a vessel arrives at the port or leaves it! Sounds interesting? To turn on the notification, simply click the button.

Note that, the button will turn blue when notifications are turned on.

The Blue Button Menu

Notice the blue buttons that appear in the first expansion of your vessel card? You can read more about their functions in The Blue Button Menu in ShipAtlas guide!
