Looking to map the estimated CO2 emissions of various types of ships, researchers at the University College of London’s Energy Institute working with Kiln, a digital journalism studio and data visualization firm have created a fascinating interactive map – Shipmap.org – showing our world’s shipping routes in motion.

The video above will give you a preview, but you should definitely follow the link to the actual map – where you’ll be able to choose your vessel type and zoom in on specific ports and shipping routes. It’s really cool.

China-owned vessel Andronikos, will be the first ship to pass through the new Panama Canal Locks on opening day.

The Neopanamax vessel is 980 feet long, with a 9,400-TEU capacity and was built in 2015 to the expanded Panama Canal’s specifications.

Picked by lottery from the Panama Canal Authority’s 15 largest clients, the recently merged China Cosco Shipping Corporation’s Andronikos will make the inaugural crossing through the expanded locks from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific, as part of the June 26th grand opening ceremonies.
