AIS Vessel Traffic Data - Continental US - US Coast Guard - Yearly Totals

This dataset contains vessel traffic data within the United States Exclusive Economic Zone (US EEZ). Data were collected from onboard navigation safety devices that transmit and monitor the location and characteristics of large vessels that transited U.S waters. The dataset is composed of vessel traffic heatmap grids that are segmented by region, ship type, month, and year, and describe aggregate traffic information extracted from the raw AIS data. The grids are 500 meter resolution and in an Albers Equal Area projection.
