Last port of call of vessels visiting the Falkland Islands from 2014 to June 2015

The dataset shows lines connecting vessels last ports of call to destinations in the Falkland Islands from 2014 to June 2015. Latitude and longitude of the ports of call (which can be extracted as point layer) is also included to allow the possibility to map the single locations. The data show as well the number of vessels travelling from the last ports of call and the Falklands. This dataset was processed from original data provided by Falkland Islands Government Customs and Immigration Department. The dataset was gathered as part of the Darwin Plus-funded project 'Marine Spatial Planning for the Falkland Islands' (July 2014-July 2016)

Lineage Falkland Islands Customs and Immigration Department has a record of vessels coming into the Falklands and leaving from the country. The department provided with data on date of vessels arrival, location where they moored or stayed, date of vessels departure, destination, nationality and catogory of the vessels. The data were used to derive the list of ports of calls in 2014 and 2015 (until June). The number of vessels coming from each last port of call was also derived and indicative lat/long coordinates were added to map the ports. Each last port of call was coupled with the destination in the Falklands in order to create lines between origin and destination locations. The QGIS plugin point2line was used for the calculation.
