Spire updates global AIS data offering to Maritime 2.0

Space-based AIS company Spire has announced an upgrade to its marine data service, with its Maritime 2.0 offering adding new algorithms and improved API connection capabilities.

The service, which offers data on vessel locations, weather conditions, and global shipping activity, has added support for GraphQL, an open-source query language, to its API infrastructure, allowing users to more easily integrate vessel Automatic Identification System (AIS) tracking data into third-party applications.

GraphQL is already deployed by a wide range of enterprise technology platforms including Atlassian, GitHub, New Relic, Intuit, and Shopify.

The company says that it has also introduced new algorithms into its data collection process, improving the accuracy of vessel identification by applying logic to clean up duplicate data sets and creating better routing models, whi9le also increasing its number of daily messages from global terrestrial data by 20%.

“Our customers have asked for more coverage, precision at scale and even cleaner data delivery,” said John Lusk, SVP of Spire Global.

“We are committed to providing continuous innovation across our maritime solutions. Maritime 2.0 delivers on this promise with the data and analytics needed to address port congestion, save fuel for maritime vessels and streamline today’s strained global supply chains.”
