Bing Maps Live Boat Tracking

Pelican Racing - Live Tracking

Pelican Racing have a truly impressive Bing Maps application that allows you to view live tracks of sailing fleets off the coast of the UK. Using the map it is possible to view any of the boats' course and speed, view current weather conditions, and watch the crew perform.

At the bottom of the map you can see which boats are currently being tracked. If none of the boats are in the water you can instead playback their last outing. If you select to playback a previous cruise you can view the track of the boat and view a synchronised video of the boat in action.

The video is synchronised with the boat's track on the map and a graph allows you to view the boat's speed at every point on its journey, along with the date and time.
