The vessel_registry collection is used to store vessel information from AIS static messages (5 and 24) or from external databases.
Each vessel information update is stored in the vessel_registry collection and is linked to its vessel via the vessel identifier.
This collection is organized by time and is very useful to retrieve all the information updates for a given vessel and a given historic period.
