This paper focus on the development of a tool for Ship and Weather Information Monitoring (SWIM) visualizing weather data combined with data from ship voyages. The project was done in close collaboration with the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI) who also evaluated the result. The goal was to implement a tool which will help shipping companies to monitor their fleet and the weather development along planned routes and provide support for decisions regarding route choice and to evade hazard. A qualitative usability study was performed to gather insight about usability issues and to aid future development. Overall the result of the study was positive and the users felt that the tool would aid them in the daily work.
