Abstract: We focus on the automatic identification system (AIS), which is a probe data system. Some researchers propose using this system not only to support ship handling, such as through collision avoidance, but also in other ways, such as for navigation time analysis, accident tracing, or navigation management by administrators on land. Therefore, we focus on the importance of obtaining more marine ship position information, including that for a small ship using class B AIS, to enrich the intelligent transport system service for marine traffic. First, we develop a processing tool to create an operation management book from the recorded AIS data. We then study the implementation of these utility tools and evaluate their effectiveness.
