Safety analysis of navigation over a given area may cover application of various risk measures for ship collisions. One of them is percentage of the so called near-miss situations (potential collision situations). In this article a method of automatic detection of such situations based on the data from Automatic Identification System (AIS), is proposed. The method utilizes input parameters such as: collision risk measure based on ship's domain concept, relative speed between ships as well as

The worked out method makes it possibile to apply an arbitrary ship's domain as well as to learn the classifier on the basis of opinions of experts interpreting the data from the AIS.
