Maritime Database

Apart from API maritime data services Datalastic, also provides static data to be downloaded. Usually in the downloadable maritime database you will find values and attributes which do not change very often. Therefore you do not need to be update the information on an hourly basis like in a dynamic database. The typical data would be port name database or country codes data. 

You can also recieve these static maritime databases as a part of your API subscription at Datalastic API web services.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does Datalastic gather maritime data?

All sailors equip their marine vessels with devices to send AIS (Automatic Identification System) data. Then the data travels to AIS stations by either Terrestrial or Satellite AIS receivers. Marine data is transmitting the signals in NMEA code format. Then the data processing partners decode the data from AIS stations. At the end of this process, Datalastic then stores the maritime information from AIS stations in our databases using the ETL data process (Extract Transform Load) data handling process.

What is the difference between dynamic and static maritime database?

Static maritime data is the data which does not change very often. For example, it can be a port location or port name. These values rarely change and do not require constant updates and attention. Datalastic checks this data on a regular basis and updates the parameters. 

Dynamic data, though, can be, for example, vessel speed and location. This type of information changes every minute or even every second. Therefore it must be updated very frequently. So, For this purpose and this type of data you can use API web services.

Is this maritime database included in the API subscription plans?
