Datalastic’s Self-Service Maritime REST API platform is the simplest solution out on the market. It is the only maritime data provider that allows you to get your maritime REST API key automatically in under 3 clicks and 5 minutes.

What is Maritime REST API?

In the Maritime industry and outside of it, Representational State Transfer (REST) is an architectural API style that sets and provides standards between systems on the web. REST is neither a protocol, library, nor tool, so communication between systems becomes easy.

The REST API architecture makes the implementation of the Client and Server independent without affecting the operation of the other.

As a result, developers and end-users can instantly access and use maritime API with any major programming language such as CURL, Java, PHP, Node, Python, Go, etc. 

With Datalastic’s REST API Platform, you have open access to global maritime information coverage that it is updated near real-time.
