Weather and wave information play a significant role for the modern shipping. By using precise forecasts, ocean lanes can be optimized and danger areas can be circumnavigated. For the domain of passenger shipping, schedules and staff assignment can be optimized. The maintenance of offshore wind farms is highly dependent on wind, precipitation and wave forecasts. And also the skippers in sport shipping benefit from exact wind and wave forecasts.

We can provide you all the needed information through a uniform interface. So you have the optimal preconditions for the integration of weather and wave information into your system.
