Ship Tracking API
BigOceanData users can supplement their subscription with a range of ship tracking APIs that provide added value services. These APIs enable users to receive an enriched data set to use in their in-house systems. APIs can be used with current and historical data supply; we have access to historical AIS data going back several years.
As well as searching for specific vessels, searches can also be targeted based on parameters such as:
- Specific areas – defined by Lat Lon
- Specific times – single point or defined period
- Ports – over a stated time frame
- Vessel size
- Vessel type
- Cargo carried
Precise searches can be easily constructed through a combination of factors. For an example area, time, location, vessel type and size can all be entered to gain a very specific view of what was operating in a certain place over a certain time.
