To fully understand maritime risk, there is a requirement to modernise and fuse disparate reporting mechanisms. Visualising the political atmosphere on top of port infrastructure and activity layers can provide insights into the risks associated with each specific port. UK P&I have partnered with Geollect, a geospatial-intelligence analytics company, to provide visualisation of these disparate data sets via geospatial data services.
