Live AIS API Web Service
Processing millions of raw NMEA messages every day our system decodes the raw AIS data and delivers it in a well-known XML or JSON format via our API.
The live AIS web service offers a set of AIS API endpoints that can be used to programmatically customise subsets of data for your GIS visualisations.
Raw AIS NMEA Data
Raw AIS data streaming is the native way of distribution of real-time AIS feeds with a minimum latency. The NMEA data format conforms to AIS specification and data sentences may be processed by all software systems designed to operate directly with AIS hardware equipment (AIS receivers, transponders or base stations).
The raw AIS data feed is provided via TCP/IP connection or UDP stream in compliance with client requirements. The feed may be filtered by area, AIS source or message type. The position reports can be downsampled in order to reduce the required bandwidth between the client and our data center.
Data access is provided on a subscription basis and the applicable fee thereof depends on the size of the area, the number of receiving stations and the vessel traffic density.
