ECDIS overwhelmed by too many AIS targets

A funny (?) article about the (mis)use of AIS:

Re: ECDIS overwhelmed by too many AIS targets

Funny? Sounds serious if you navigate in those areas. And if not dealt with, will only get worse.

Re: ECDIS overwhelmed by too many AIS targets

Seems like a pretty simple solution, assign a floating fishing or survey gear AIS type. From the article
Quote:
The IMO has acknowledged the use of radar enhanced Aids to Navigation by assigning symbols to these Aids (IMO Annex MSC.1/Circ.1473). To date, there is no symbol assigned to commercially or privately launched or anchored buoys or equipment. There is a growing need for oversight for the utilization of AIS on floating gear.

Re: ECDIS overwhelmed by too many AIS targets

There was a thread on here a while back which discussed this issue and a number of the posts suggested the solutions now being proposed in the article.
