Abstract
A Coverage Index Generator Java application was developed in the summer of 2011, based on the work of Lapinski and Isenor (Estimating Reception Coverage Characteristics of AIS, Lapinski and Isenor, Journal of Navigation, October 2011). This application gathers Automatic Identification System (AIS) messages and produces a coverage map, graphically representing the quality and fidelity of signals received by coastal sensors. The application gathers its inputs either from static data files or a streaming input source. This report describes the AIS-Indexer functionalities provided to the user. It also describes how to install and configure the application. This application was initially developed in 2011. OODA Technologies improved the application in 2012 under call-ups 5 [1] and 6 [2] to the standing offer W7707-115137.
