Marine Traffic AIS Website

Definitely worth a look, you can find out the details of any AIS equipped vessel in the world in real time. Lost a couple of hours playing with this site.

Can't seem to move or drag the map or even zoom in on ShipAIS.com. Am I missing something?

No, you have to select an area from the menu on the left.
I think marinetraffic is better because you can go to different parts of the world, you can see a vessels track and you can pull up a picture of a lot of ships.

no shore based recievers feeding into the system. These are usually ship agents or port authorities in the area.
