Seaports play a vital role in the global economy, as they operate as the connection corridors to all other modes of transport and as engines of growth for the wider region. But ports today are faced with numerous unique challenges and for them to remain competitive, significant investments are required. In support of greater transparency in policy making, decisions regarding investment need to be supported by data-driven intelligence. It is often an overlooked fact that seaports do not remain… 
A Big Data Driven Approach to Extracting Global Trade Patterns
TLDR
The aim is to transform billions of records of spatiotemporal (AIS) data into information for understanding the patterns of global trade by adopting distributed processing approaches based on the MapReduce paradigm, and demonstrate its validity in real world conditions.
