Here’s a fun interactive map of global shipping. ShipMap allows users to selected color coding for ship types: container, dry bulk, tanker, gas bulk, and vehicles. It even lets you select animated ships on their routes.

The map was generated with 2012 data from the UK-based UCL Energy Institute, which looks at “the challenges of climate change and energy security.”
