API added to environmental data solution
OceanWise has improved the integration of its environmental data storage and publishing solution ‘Port-Log’ by adding an Application Programming Interface (API).
The API allows customers to gain control over how their environmental data stored within Port-Log is used in their organisation, maximising the benefits of the data and providing a way for customers to integrate data into their own processes and workflows and support their specific business needs.
OceanWise said its vision is to “help organisations with interests in the marine and coastal environment to realise the benefits that a modern approach to data management and decision support can bring.”
The new Port-Log API provides data in response to HTTP requests and in doing so can be accessed with virtually any programming language, to ensure it can be easily integrated into existing systems.
Port-Log is commonly used to display tides, wind, waves and other meteorological and oceanographic data types, but vessel location (AIS), dynamic positioning and motion data can also be included.
The technology gives organisations the ability to store environmental monitoring data securely and publish it in near real time or historically on the web.
Provided as a pure cloud-based subscription service or as an inhouse installed system, it is an off-the-shelf product, so removes the complex and costly task of acquiring and implementing the technologies needed to collate, process and share multiple data sets.
