Your guide to the Maritime Data world
What’s a Vessel Tracking API?The Vessel API makes accessing data as easy as possible, and positions all data from every sensor, system, machine, and vessel, everywhere in the world that are picked up by Terrestrial AIS stations or Satellites. Indeed, it allows you to receive real-time data on vessel name, MMSI, IMO, ENI, Country ISO, Type, Type-specific, latitude, longitude, speed, course, heading, navigation status, destination, last_position_epoch, last_position_UTC, Estimated Time of Arrival_European Parallel Operating System Based on Chorus, Estimated Time of Arrival_UTC.

What Does Vessel Tracking API serve for?Vessel tracking API serves for creating custom maps, applications, integrations, analyzing data and unlocking the full power of machine learning. Indeed,the user can retrieve data instantly and transform it in ANY way that a user wants. Everything a user wants to know is found in the API. There’s a lot of data a user can collect. As a result,you can make queries and enhancements, all in a format that both humans and machines can understand and anyone with a little training can learn. Our ships tracking interface provides access to near real-time vessel position and ship information data using powerful and secure application programming interfaces REST API which work with HTTP requests to perform standard data functions. It allows you to report on or build applications that utilize live vessel movement data, notifications, and alerts.
Vessel tracker API DocumentationAPI documentation contains guidelines that help you adequately utilize and incorporate the API in your vessel tracking project. In other words,it’s an instructional document containing with insights and instructional exercises and models. To illustrate,real time ships tracking API has 3 different endpoints:
- Basic: /vessel -extremely quick and give you different data like area, speed, course, objective, type, subtype. The normal API demand reaction time is 0.005 sec.
- Pro: /vessel_pro – Pro version gives Estimated Time of ArrivalTime of Arrival, Actual Time of Departure, current draft, standardized destination name. The normal API demand reaction time is 0.9 sec.
- Bulk: /vessel_bulk – call up to 100 vessels in a single request.
