The technology behind the web app has also enabled Pinkfroot to introduce some advanced features such as:
Sail Me - pick a voyage, for example a recent cruise, and replay it using Google Earth to sail the trip in the virtual world
Playback - pick a date, time and location to replay marine traffic on the Google map. This could be a major event such as ship running aground, to observe port traffic or to review a yacht race.
