Weather data added to ShipDC

ClassNK’s wholly owned database services subsidiary Ship Data Center (ShipDC) has agreed a deal to add marine weather information from the Japan Weather Association to its data store.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}ShipDC aims to act as a platform for ‘Big Data’ for shipping by securely collecting, storing and providing data to users through its data centre infrastructure.

Japan Weather Association’s free provision of real-time marine weather information such as offshore wind (direction, speed), waves (height, frequency, direction) and ocean currents (direction, speed), will allow users of ShipDC to combine this data with their own ship data.

An optional paid usage data set, with items such as long-term marine weather information and wave spectral information, will also be made available.{/mprestriction}
