Interview on J-Marine Cloud with Professor Ruri Shoji of Tokyo University of Marine Science, who is engaged in marine research by using the J-Marine GIS Advanced Navigation System
Cloud will enable anyone to access information from anywhere. Smooth communication can be achieved by sharing information.
As the globalization progresses, it becomes essential to share the same information among family members, work colleagues, business partners and customers.
In the marine field, information sharing has been very limited. It is expected that the revolutionary system such as J-Marine Cloud popularizes information sharing, consequently realizing safer, more efficient, and environmentally-friendly operations.
What is the J-Marine GIS Advanced Navigation System?
The system refers to the research facility that supports research and development, and also education and training relating to vessel operations by collecting, managing, analyzing, and displaying a variety of vessel operating information more efficiently in an integrated manner.
The system is used for monitoring their own training vessel maneuvering statuses and research such as vessel movement analysis within Tokyo Bay, optimum route simulation, risk judgment verification, and so on.

- With the functions for real-time display that enables checking of vessel movements and the playback display that enables redisplay of past statuses, the system can be used for verification of the trails of vessels and checking the change of marine traffic flow.
- The system, which can display radar images, navigation information, and engine information in real time via the satellite channel, enables navigation experiment verification by combining with the TV conference function.
- Image data that is collected from the Web cameras that are installed on-board or on the land can be utilized for processing data and also for research.
