Possibly for future release, as an analyst interested in identifying displacement, I would want to click on an area, select all vessels in area, and save as a vessel group. This would allow me to see how the vessels behaved before and after an event and I wouldn’t need to manually upload a list of vessels. i.e. select EEZ/MPA for a given time frame to create a new group of vessels.
Possible flow: Select area of polygon (custom) select all vessels in polygon and save as a group. OR to create new vessel group module, allow the user to select a group by EEZ, MPA, or custom polygon over a given time period.
