CSSN has launched an innovative new feature – an easy to use set of data visualization tools presented in the form of interactive maps. They comprise a suite of infographics designed to assist captains and crew in assessing safety and security risks by location in the Caribbean basin.

CSSN has been collecting and reporting incident data since 2007. Now geocoded with Google map coordinates, there is sufficient data to be able to organize it into a visually compelling and useful interactive infographic. CSSN have now made all this information available to the cruising and yachting community on a single screen, accessible on any device users choose.

Now, before you cruise to a given island or anchorage in the Caribbean, simply

access the CSSN Zoom-Tap, Know & Go interactive infographic risk assessment tool. Easily and quickly review what the historical pattern of incidents has been since 2014 at any location. Zoom in to any location, then tap a marker to research and understand any incident reported there – see all the same supporting details and updates that appear in the CSSN incident reports and database. It’s that easy.

Take Zoom-Tap, Know & Go for a test drive. All offered for free, with no commercial content or sponsor/advertiser influence, by the all-volunteer team at CSSN.

Using the best available information – CSSN informs, and captains decide.
