Is that really ice on the cruise track ahead? Even experts can have problems correctly interpreting satellite images. To make sure that they're interpreting the data correctly, they use data from multiple of sources. This is exactly what our Ice Maps do: combine the relevant data to enable simpler interpretation.
By combining sea-ice concentration, optical, and radar satellite imagery, our Ice Maps deliver the data used by experts for assessing the sea-ice situation in the field. Level up your on-board information level and support your Ice Map interpretation with our Ice Map Interpretation Manual.

The Drift+Noise IceMaps are a meaningful instrument for our voyage planning in the Antarctic and will continue to be used, especially considering the requirements of the Polar Code. We find that the Sentinel-1 (radar) IceMaps deliver the best information.
IceMaps were very useful, [...] we were able to adjust the speed in such a way, that we always met the ice during daylight.
The radar maps were the best, as they gave the best view of ice, even when the skies were overcast.
