The service is provided as a REST API service, using JSON format for the returned values. Seametrix API consists of two main services:
The Get-Ports Service: Provides the means for searching and finding any sea port or terminal from within Seametrix’s database.
The Get-Routes Service: Provides the means for getting a route between up to 16 points at sea (with a single call). Typically the points are usually ports, but the routing engine can also calculate sea routes and sea distances from any given coordinate inserted. The method will return all the route details including total distance, SECA distance, and a detailed path which may be drawn on any map.
