The Pole Star API provides programmatic access to near real-time vessel position and ship information data using powerful and secure application programming interfaces, allowing you to report on or build applications that utilise live vessel movement data, notifications, and alerts.
Every day, Pole Star processes millions of position reports for over 150,000 vessels. With our API, you can connect your ERP or in-house systems with the data in your account, including AIS and Inmarsat-C positions, as well as our database of ship particulars.
Essentially, our RESTful API allows developers to access the vessel position and ship data that users of the Pole Star platform can access using our mobile and desktop apps. With API key authentication and granular user-based permissions, you can easily manage and control access to the Pole Star API.
