Maritime API and mapping

Optimize operations with essential global maritime weather data — wave, swell, and tidal information, surface ocean currents, sea surface temperature, and more.



Use cases


Developer resources

Leverage maritime API endpoints and map layers for port operations, offshore platforms, safety, and beyond

Access critical data and create stunning visuals using Xweather's maritime endpoint and layers, featuring information on wave height and direction, swell, tides, currents, and more. Pair with related datasets like alerts, severe weather, tides, and wind to build the ultimate weather-inclusive maritime safety solution.

Xweather's maritime API and mapping offerings are available through Flex and MapsGL plans and can be explored in our free 30-day developer trial.

Trans-oceanic shipping

Plot your entire oceanic shipping route with live weather updates for safe, efficient passage from point A to point B. High-quality weather forecasting, severe alerts, swell, wind waves, wave direction, and significant wave periods lend to a comprehensive and weather-inclusive journey.

Offshore platforms and operations

Storms on the sea create hazardous conditions for offshore platforms, installations, and construction, delaying buildouts or scheduled maintenance. One lightning strike can have catastrophic consequences for LNG operations or WTIV or helicopter transportation. We recommend pairing maritime datasets with severe alerts, lightning, and wind data for the safest open-sea projects.

Port operations

Ensure the safe operation of crane lifts and cargo handling equipment for on- and off-loading with advanced wave, wind, and lightning datasets.

Use case spotlight

Asset and personnel management

Keep people and equipment safe and sound on the seas. Overlay weather layers with your existing mapping applications to quickly visualize weather alerts, tropical cyclone pathing, lightning, and more to quickly contextualize assets in relation to weather threats.
