AIS generator
« on: 12 November, 2012, 02:21:26 pm »
For now, I'm working on ais message parsing and I can't find any application able to generate uncommon ais messages (especially types 9,18,19,21 and 24). Can anybody help me finding one?

Unfortunately I haven't seen such software. It will be very useful indeed

The gpsd software includes a set of annotated AIS test messages, available at http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/gpsd.git/tree/test

Note that gpsd also includes a robust AIS parser itself, along with client libraries to access the parsed stream.  You may want to also consider if you can re-used the existing code, instead of starting from scratch.
