Pagination or Media Count:
The report describes a methodology for developing a data base which can be applied to the system design of a vessel traffic management system for any port or harbor. The methodology provides a systematic structuring of harbor characteristics so that data elements at the microscopic level can be related to overall measures of effectiveness for particular desired end-uses. These data elements are arranged into convenient module building blocks which may be universally applied to any port or harbor. The methodology permits the use of judgmental weighting factors with updating as data are collected, in order to measure the effectiveness of the VTS.
