Journey Plotter is a free Windows application for visualizing journeys of Royal Navy vessels of the World War 1-era, or Arctic voyages of United States vessels from the mid 19th century onwards.

For a given day, you can see the ship's position and read the log-book entries that describe activities on board.

JP makes use of data from original Royal Navy and United States log-books that has been digitised and then made available by naval-history.net.

This month's Journey Plotter update:
Many positions have been added to the journeys of 's USCGC Unalga I (1913-1917), and 's HMS India (1915) and HMS Foyle (1920-1921).
These dead reckoning positions, or calculated from bearings and distances to mentioned landmarks, add more detail to their respective journeys.

About one hundred additional, non-noon positions have been added to the journey (1915) of Royal Navy's HMS India.
These positions, calculated from bearings and distances to mentioned landmarks, add some more detail to her time in Glasgow and on northern patrol.

⚓ 🌍

More than one hundred additional positions have been collected from the logs of HMS Foyle (1920-1921).
The extra detail makes her round the southwest of Ireland much better.

The Journey Plotter website also has an On This Day page.
Read a random log-book page for this day from the many ships transcribed by volunteers on the Old Weather project and edited into a more readable form by volunteers on the naval-history.net project.

Available ships: Royal Navy ships (WW1-era) & United States Navy, Revenue Service/Coast Guard, Coast & Geodetic Survey and Fish Commission ships (from mid 19th century onwards).
