Our platform and API services operate with real-time or historical vessel positions, intelligent  routing data and calculated ETAs to ensure you have the visibility you need on demand. BigOceanData integrates five day weather forecast data, updated every 12 hours, as well as an automated Piracy notification feed.

The increasing number of fires on container vessels which break out in on-board containers are of increasing concern to insurers (International Union of Marine Insurers). For incident investigation we provide historical track analysis and vessel replay tools and for more in-depth cases complex query and area data.
