Has anyone else noticed the addition of AIS (Automatic
Identification System) data on aprs.fi?  For those who
don't know what AIS is, it's a 9600 baud tracking
system for tracking commercial ships.  The protocol is
patented, but can be decoded using ShipPlotter
(http://www.coaa.co.uk/shipplotter.htm)

Looks like they aprs.fi is looking for more costal
stations to feed the AIS data to the server.  Pretty
neat.
