After finishing my degree in Computer Engineering I moved to Cyprus, where I was both pursuing a graduate degree and working as a computer programming teacher. The teaching job was indeed a profound experience since I got the chance and the right motivation to focus on the things that I was responsible for teaching and grasped a deep understanding of them. It is believed that “You never really learn something until you teach it”. Accordingly, teaching is such an effective learning tool.

Processing real time AIS data with Sesam

tombech March 1, 2017

AIS (Automatic Identification System) is an automatic tracking system used on marine vessels such as ships, static equipment (such as buoys) and things like search-and-rescue planes. In september 2016 this data was made available to the public. Since AIS has become open data it can be collected by Sesam and used with other open data for insight, to learn and to find connections. The use of this data can create resources, such as applications for employees of The Norwegian Coastal Administration to know which ship they are supposed to be on, at which time and if it is delayed.
