Has anyone stumbled across a listing of World (or at least N. American) marine ports in some computer-friendly form. All I'm looking for is a name and L/L - It need not be free - but hopefully I can find something before I end up just going through the guide to port entry and typing them all in...

any ideas?

You may try here: www.portinfo.co.uk, but I am not convinced they are likely to share any of their data... Although the company was to introduce some sort of web based port finding tool/service.

There is also http://www.fairplay.co.uk/, a direct competitor of sgl.

And I remember seeing some sort of port directory online. Don't remeber where, but it was out there...

Not much but hope this helps

In case this helps anyone... I came across a very similar question on AskMetafilter.

Have you seen the World Port Index from the NGA? You can download a shapefile on the right-hand side.

"The World Port Index (Pub 150) contains the location and physical characteristics of, and the facilities and services offered by major ports and terminals world-wide (approximately 4300 entries), in a tabular format. Entries are organized geographically, in accordance with the diagrams located in the front of the publication. The World Port Index publication can be downloaded in its entirety as an Adobe PDF document, a Microsoft Access database, or as an ESRI Arcshape file."
