Ship Tracking API – from BigOceanData

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.
