AAPA Offers Interactive Map of Member Ports

The American Association of Port Authorities has created an interactive western hemispheric map of its member ports.

The map is now available on the AAPA website. Using the technology of Google Maps, it provides information regarding primary cargoes, channel depths, contact information, websites, image galleries, social media and multimedia links for each member port. Specific port information can be accessed by clicking on + and – signs to enlarge or reduce the map, then clicking on each port's pin marker. The Web page also includes a top-down view of each port, accessible by clicking on the "window/arrow" in the top corner of the map, then scrolling to the bottom of the list and clicking on the square map icon. Using aerial and satellite imagery, the view enables users to zoom in on the address of each port's headquarters. The map includes buttons and underlying information for 14 ports in Canada, 85 in the U.S., nine in the Caribbean and 48 in Latin America.
