Cambridge, Ontario, Canada, Feb. 5 , 2013—exactEarth Ltd., the leading provider of satellite AIS data services, announced the release of new Geospatial Web Services (GWS) allowing users to access Satellite AIS data in an as-requested manner, creating an “on-demand” environment for exactAIS® data. Data can now be integrated with other geospatial datasets dynamically and can be immediately consumed and displayed in any Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) compliant geospatial system such as Esri and Google Earth platforms.
This new capability gives users easy and simple access to daily live tracking of over 90,000 ships globally. Customized ship data can now be immediately consumed and displayed allowing for current ship information to be available on request with no new platform purchases required. The interoperability features with existing systems simplifies operations and enables powerful new analytical tools.
