ITOPF has developed a Geographic Information System to display information from ITOPF’s established in-house datasets, such as the database of accidental oil spills from tankers started in 1974.

An important development is the inclusion of datasets depicting tanker traffic flow from laden oil tanker shipments for the years 2001, 2005 and 2011, based on data provided by Lloyd's MIU which was analysed and interpreted in-house.
