Re: Caution: AIS Apps

Just curious about "...is posted to the Internet by volunteers who have receivers located in fixed positions (often far from water)." I noticed AIS data showing in the Antarctic, are there volunteers there? It seems they would have better things to do than to be feeding data into the Internet. Curious how that works?
