No More Cruise Ships

For the past four summers, starting in 2012, I’ve been operating a website that provides structured data – iCal, XML, JSON, RSS – about cruise ship visits to the Port of Charlottetown, a reaction to the lack of such data from the Port itself.

Now the Port is providing data itself – not in as many formats, and missing metadata like number of passengers, but from the horse’s mouth – and so I’ll suspend my own efforts.  More details here.

I’ve never known as much about the comings and goings of cruise ships as I have these past years; it’s been fun.

Oh no! I prefer yours. I have some nice IFTTT integrations into Slack, etc. Hopefully I can recreate them.

Is the Port just doing a Google Calendar?

Thanks for doing this for the past few years.

Yes, it looks like the Port of Charlottetown is maintaining their data only in Google Calendar. Perhaps you can use your market might to influence them toward a greater variety and richness of data!
