Which data is included in the vessels' AIS reports?

Vessels transmit several data fields via AIS, such as the name of the ship, its IMO and MMSI number, callsign, flag, general vessel type and dimensions.

Further information includes the actual position, speed, course, heading and current draft. Also, the ship's crew updates destination and estimated time of arrival (ETA).
