AIS Ship & Vessel Tracking

Enrich your geospatial analysis with AIS data

Unlock an array of maritime use cases

UP42 is excited to announce our partnership with exactEarth, bringing industry-leading AIS data on our marketplace. Automatic Identification System (AIS) records the position, routes, destinations, ETAs, and more of every passenger and large commercial vessel worldwide.

With two AIS products from exactEarth, UP42 users can augment their analysis with either historical vessel position or vessel voyage data. These blocks can seamlessly enrich ship detection, port monitoring, and vessel route optimization, among many other maritime use cases.


A decade of data

exactEarth’s data blocks provide historical data dating back to 2010 - perfect for rigorous training of machine learning models.


Rich, actionable insights

Unlock the value of AIS data by combining it with other geospatial imagery and gain a truly holistic view of your maritime landscape.


Scalable infrastructure

Whether you are analyzing a 5km2 port or a 1,000,000km2 ocean, our infrastructure has you covered. Build your workflow - we’ll do the rest.


Access via API

As you move from prototyping to production, our Python SDK makes it easy. Automate your workflows and seamlessly embed AIS-based insights into your solutions.
