The national AIS network, AIS Norway, consists of shore- and satellite-based AIS. It is operated by the Norwegian Coastal Administration (NCA) and is an important tracking tool for Norwegian authorities and the national emergency response.
The Norwegian Coastal Administration provides AIS data in real time, either as raw data or online traffic information displayed in charts. The Norwegian AIS network has an open and a closed component. Data is accessed in both cases via a standard internet connection.
