This documents describes how to access the ASTD data. The Cooperative Agreement among the Arctic States Regarding Arctic Ship Traffic Data Sharing (ASTD Framework) establishes who may access the ASTD System, how access is sought, what data may be accessed, whether a fee is charged, and how ASTD data may be used. The ASTD Framework defines three levels of access to the ASTD System. The graphic and table below describe these three access levels. Through PAME, Participating Arctic States have paid for the development and ongoing maintenance of the ASTD System and have full access to the System, subject to the terms of the ASTD Framework.
