Monitor and Optimize Maritime Activity

With satellite imagery and algorithms, AIS data, and 1000 weather parameters, UP42 enables you to track, predict, and optimize maritime activity on a global scale.

Maritime geospatial projects face a number of challenges

Wide-ranging data types

Wide-ranging data types

More so than any other industry, maritime is impacted by many variables, from weather to different ship routes. Integrating this array of data types requires vast expertise.

Vast areas of interest

Vast areas of interest

The ocean covers 70% of the Earth's surface. As a result, maritime activity tracking can require analysis covering thousands or even millions of square kilometers.

Real-time nature of decisions

Real-time nature of decisions

Maritime conditions can change in an instant. Therefore, geospatial data and the insights derived from geospatial analysis must be near-real-time.
