Installation

pip install Marine-Traffic-API

Initialize API

from marinetrafficapi import MarineTrafficApi

api = MarineTrafficApi(api_key="__your_api_key_here__")

Default params

response = api.__api_call_method__(protocol='json'|'jsono'|'csv'|'xml', # default is jsono
                                   msg_type='simple'|'extended',  # default is simple
                                   timeout=10) # default is 5 (5 seconds)

# protocol, msg_type and timeout are call params 
# that could be used in any api call. 
# json protocol is not supported by models, for now.
# extended msg_type returns a lot more data but cost 
# a lot more api credits as well.

response.raw_data  # raw data from api call (json, csv or xml)
response.formatted_data  # data formatted in python's native data types
response.models  # list of model objects representing the data
response.meta # meta data that in some way describes API response

List all API call methods

There are quite a few api call methods and it's quite usefull to have a complete list in one place.

There is one very useful python package called dumpit with which you can easily list all methods and descriptions:

https://github.com/arrrlo/dumpit

To list api call methods, do the following:

from dumpit import pdumpit

from marinetrafficapi import Events
from marinetrafficapi import VoyageInfo
from marinetrafficapi import VesselData
from marinetrafficapi import VesselPositions

pdumpit(Events)
pdumpit(VoyageInfo)
pdumpit(VesselData)
pdumpit(VesselPositions)

Field Descriptions

API call parameter list and descriptions

Every API call has it's own parameters.

To list them and to read description for every one of them, use following code:

from marinetrafficapi import MarineTrafficApi

MarineTrafficApi.print_params_for('vessel_historical_track')

Print Parameters

Response Models Descriptions

There are a lot of model fields and every one of them has it's own description which describes the data comming from the API.

from dumpit import pdumpit
from marinetrafficapi import MarineTrafficApi

api = MarineTrafficApi(api_key="__your_api_key_here__")

request = api.vessel_historical_track(period='daily', days=3, mmsi=241486000)

pdumpit(request.models[0])

Field Descriptions

Debugging

If you want to debug your code using the data regarding the API call.

from marinetrafficapi import MarineTrafficApi

# initialize with debug=True
api = MarineTrafficApi(api_key="__your_api_key_here__", debug=True)

# after every API call the client library will automatically print all the data to standard output
api.vessel_historical_track(period='daily', days=3, mmsi=241486000)

# and you can always have all debug data in your code
debug_data = api.request.debug.show()
