    Dear Rosie,

    Thank you for your comment.

    The API services have specific request parameters and response fields.

    The PS01 Vessel Historical Track could be requested using the IMO,SHIP_ID or MMSI, however the response includes only the MMSI and SHIP_ID.

    Please have a look at our documentation for further details. https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais-api-services/documentation/api-service:ps01/

    We really appreciate your feedback as our mission is to constantly improve our services.

    Kind regards,

    Why can't the API send back the IMO? Your database knows it (because you know other parameters of a ship).

    Can you create an enhancement request for this feature (to send back the IMO as well)?

     

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Dear Mike,

    Thank you for your comment,

    The PS01 (Vessel Historical Track) API  service returns the MMSI and SHIP_ID in the simple response.

    However, you could call it by using one of the vessel's identifiers(IMO,MMSI,SHIP_ID). 

    We will forward your feedback to our product team.

    Kind regards,
