ENHANCED VESSEL DATA

ENHANCED VESSEL DATA PARTICULARS

Enhanced Vessel Data (EVD) is a set of additional data that provides further vessel information within the Vessels API for a variety of commercial vessels. This further vessel info relates to:

  • Capacity
  • Design
  • Dimensions
  • History
  • Propulsion
  • Registration
  • Vessel and Trading Type

This data is updated on a regular basis. The fields exist within two sets: Default and Extended. Include an embed=enhanced_data parameter within a Vessels API call to request these fields.
