I use a website called Marine Traffic. I look at vessels on this website and then manually plot their position on my laptop. My laptop runs OpenCPN and I plot position of vessel with a waypoint.
On marine traffic I can search for a vessel using their MMSI number, a unique number for that vessel. You can do it with the URL.
E.G: If I want to search for a vessel named TANKER SPIRIT, I know their MMSI is 309541000.

I want you to create a webpage I can host on my laptop.
On the webpage I will be able to input a MMSI number of a marine vessel / ship. It will then run a program on the Laptop with Python or PHP. The program will get the following information from Marine Traffic webpage; E.G:
1) Vessel name: TANKER SPIRIT
2) IMO: 9339636
3) MMSI: 309541000
4) Call Sign: C6WH3
5) Flag: Bahamas [BS]
6) AIS Vessel Type: Tanker
7) Position Received: 5 minutes ago (2019-06-06 11:55 (UTC)
8) Latitude/Longitude: 55.89421° / 16.28556°
9) Speed/Course: 12.4kn / 60°
The program will create a GPX file with the above data which can be imported into OpenCPN. The GPX file will be able to create a waypoint on OpenCPN with the following properties:
Name of waypoint = (8) Vessel name (6) Position received time
Position = (7)
Description = (9)
Here is an example of the GPX file (file name must match waypoint name):
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="yes"?>
<gpx version="1.1" creator="name" xmlns="[login to view URL]" xmlns:xsi="[login to view URL]" xsi:schemaLocation="[login to view URL] [login to view URL]">
<wpt lat="55.89421" lon="16.28556">
<desc>Speed/Course: 12.4kn / 60°</desc>
NB: <sym>Marks-Race-Tetrahedron-Mark1</sym> is a required addition to the file as you see it for OpenCPN.
I don't care how messy the method is or how ugly the code is as long as it gets the job done!
HTML / PHP / Python only.
