Our APIs


At MariData we have developed a library of high performance APIs to manage and analyse the vast quantities of data generated by global shipping.

Shipping technology is booming, and we want to make these APIs available to developers and data teams across the industry to accelerate adoption of new and exciting applications.

Our APIs take care of the heavy lifting involved with using shipping data, allowing teams to focus resources on delivering applications to industry.

Please drop us a line to discuss your requirements.

The APIs


This API draws on our extensive polygon database, including details on approximately 7,500 ports worldwide, to return information about which of the following areas that positions falls within:
  • Ocean / Sea
  • EEZ
  • Port Area
  • Berth
More information about this API can be found at our API help page
This API returns cleaned AIS data for any number of vessels. The update frequency is customisable to adapt to any project's scope and budget.

Each API call returns
  • Vessel name
  • Vessel IMO
  • Vessel MMSI
  • Vessel call sign
  • Position date
  • Latitude
  • Longitude
  • Navigation Status
  • Rate of turn
  • Speed over ground
  • Course over ground
  • True heading
  • Ship type
  • Dimension to bow
  • Dimension to stern
  • Dimension to port
  • Dimension to starboard
  • ETA
  • Draught
  • Destination
More information about this API can be found at our API help page
This API is a high speed calculation of the sea route and distance between any two points at sea. Input data can either be a lat/lon position, or one of our 7,500 ports worldwide.

The high speed of the calculation allows this API to be combined with vessel location data to provide up to date distance and ETA estimates for one or multiple ships in real time.

More information about this API can be found at our API help page
This API takes a port (from our database of over 7,500 ports) and returns the expected arrivals at that port within the next 4 weeks.

More information about this API can be found at our API help page
This API uses a series of machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms to return the most likely destination for any given vessel.

More information about this API can be found at our API help page
This API takes the proposed route of the vessel, and returns details of the risk to the vessels from piracy or crime at sea at each waypoint.

Data is available in an RTZ compliant XML file for integration with other navigation systems

More information about this API can be found at our API help page
This API returns the current risk to any given vessel from piracy or crime at sea, based on its current position and status.

More information about this API can be found at our API help page
This API returns the projected risk to any given vessel from piracy or crime at sea, at 6, 12, 18, and 24 hours hence, based on its proposed route and status.

This API returns a timeline of a ships complete trading history between any two times, including details on:
  • Ocean / Sea
  • EEZ
  • Port Area
  • Berth
  • Draught
  • Destination
  • ETA
  • Commodity Loaded

This API will return a detailed list of all suitable ships that are within range of a particular port based on their current position, load status, and the required date.

It makes use of our high speed route finding algorithm to determine the distance of each ship from the port, including ships travelling indirectly.

For more information about this API, please contact us
This API returns a structured data set of all individual shipping movements that satisfy a given criteria, for example all movements of a particular ship type, or all exports from a given port.

Each record includes estimates of the type and tonnage of the cargo carried, as well as details of the load and discharge port, terminal and berth.
