What’s new with Spire Maritime 2.0?

The newest update to our Maritime solution brings improved performance and data quality, and new, innovative ways to interact with our smart, clean data.

Duplicate MMSIs and IMOs clean-up

Spire Maritime 2.0 introduces a logic that identifies correct vessel tracks and removes duplicate MMSI or IMO entries. The result is a cleaner, more practical data feed.

20% more global terrestrial AIS data

Starting with Maritime 2.0, our customers will get a 20% increase in Terrestrial AIS data, seamlessly delivered through our API feeds.

GraphQL querying

Spire Maritime 2.0 introduces GraphQL, an open-source data query language to request and subscribe to only the data fields you are interested in, via a sole data endpoint.

Customer testimonial

“Partnering with Spire was a great decision for our team, it’s given us the highest quality AIS data that we could find, which is fundamental to the platform that we’re building.”
