My office overlooks Lake Michigan and I often see the big lake freighters (700 ft + LOA) far offshore. I notice that often they do not show up on the AIS location map. I guess I thought all or nearly all large commercial vessels would be equipped with AIS and appear on that site. Can anyone speak to the extent to which AIS is actually used on the Great Lakes and to how accurate and complete the actually is?
