Photo of AIS density map 2019

​​​​​​​​​A passage line is a line between two points, marking the boundary between two sections of water. The number of ships passing these lines is computed by means of statistics.

The charts below show the passage lines used in the statistics in the tables. The tables show the annual number of passengers for all ships, distributed according to their direction of passage:
