Sea distances API by Seametrix

Easy and very quick to integrate API

Seametrix routing, is provided as a Rest API service, using JSON format for the returned values. It is very easy and quick to integrate, and we provide full support for helping you to implement it.

Waypoints and Routing line string

Seametrix API, other than the port distances, returns the full path of the sea route along with the involved waypoints and the relevant line string, for visualising the whole voyage on the map.

Seametrix html map and marine layers

We’re offering our API clients the option to use our map, and all the marine weather layers Seametrix offers, such as: JWLA 022, HRA, VRA, INL, Load Line zones, SECA areas, Alaska COTP & Nordic plan.

Vast ports & routing points database

Our clever Get-portservice accompanying Seametrix API, offers you by far the most complete database of sea/inland ports and routing points to choose from! All ports are also searchable wth their UN/LOCODE.

Returning SECA distances separately

If the sea routing contains a SECA leg, then our API other than the total distance of the voyage, separately returns the traveled mileage within a SECA area. This is an essential info for voyage Estimations.

Choose between ports or co-ords

All other API’s offer plain port distances. Seametrix allows you to choose ports or whatever co-ords you wish your route to go through. We consider this a vital parameterization for fully custom routes.

Activate/Deactivate Canals transit

Seametrix API, allows you to choose whether to enable or disable passage through any of the 8 most important Canals and Straits that our sea routing network supports.

Piracy Area avoidance customisation

Our API is giving the end-user the option to choose between 5 Piracy Avoidance areas, or alternatively to calculate the shortest route, without taking into account the piracy areas at all.

Navigation method customisation

Seametrix API, is the only sea distances API, offering correct and highly accurate Rhumbline and Great-Circle sea distance results. Our api allows you to choose between either navigational method.

API Specs

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 two points in the sea. Typically the points are usually ports, but the routing engine can also calculate sea routes and sea distances from any given coordinate supplied. The method will return all the route details, including total distance, SECA distance and a detailed path which may be drawn on any map.

The User may define a set of parameters for the routing calculation, so as to provide the routing engine with custom requirements and get the best possible sea distance results. The allowed routing customisations, include:
  • Routing between any port or any coordinate
  • Rhumbline navigation distance calculation
  • Great-Circle navigation distance calculation
  • Choose between 5 Piracy Avoidance areas or N/A
  • Choose to activate/deactivate passing between Canals
