Message:

I noticed that AIS type 4 messages, for base stations, are not plotted. For example, if PolarCom sends to PolarViewNS the following message

!AIVDM,1,1,,B,403Ow4QunLkE:r3JNtH<Pa?0285t,0*3C

this object is not plotted on PolarView NS.

You are correct, PolarView currently does not support base station display.

The usefulness of showing AIS base stations is that the USCG RESCUE21 stations typically identify themselves with this designation. Plotting these AIS type 4 messages allows one to see where the USCG RESCUE21 antenna towers are located.

When you do add support to PolarViewNS for display of AIS base stations, may I suggest that you use a distinctive icon to show the location of the base station so that it is clearly distinguished from a ship. Perhaps an icon that suggests a radio tower might be appropriate for the AIS base station, or a very distinctive color;

As a corollary, it would be useful and perhaps not too difficult from a programming aspect, if the PolarViewNS application could have an option to write to a file in simple comma delimited text the decoded payload of the AIS messages it has received and decoded. This would be somewhat analogous to the ability presently in the application to write the raw !AIDVM data to a file. In this way one could have or collect data about AIS targets in a file. Thanks for consideration of these suggestions.

Thanks, Jim - it will go on the list of items to consider.
