It’s ports-a-plenty at, a free online directory of satellite maps and other information on over 4,500 world ports.

The site lists ports by country and region. An interactive satellite map allows visitors to “zoom in” on the port of their choosing and view links to other port details. Click a port on the map and choose “Port Detail” for a run down of the port’s history, commercial viability, and contact information for the port authority.

Curious about shipping line ports of call? View a list of container liner services for a specific port. See a live map of all ports of call for a specific carrier via the “Shipping” link within each port’s listing.

“Local Views” are another interesting feature of the site, allowing visitors to view a local satellite map of port operations or a cargo ship a dock.
