Exporting AIS data to a database

The AIS data are exported slightly differently from the NMEA data.

1. Select the packet types that contain the AIS data (Figure 1).

2. Disable data aggregation (Figure 12).

3. The AIS data stream contains a lot of data, and the number and names of variables are not known beforehand. Therefore:

  1. The active items list in the “DDE Server” dialog box may contain tons of variables.
  2. Write down the names of variables that you need, because they will not be present in the dropdown list in the data export module.
