Summary: For the captain of a ship, it is very important to have a proposal of the routethat allows him to reach the desired destiny as soon as possible, taking into accountweather conditions. In order to find such a route a former estimation of meteorologicalvariables for every single day of the journey is needed, because those variables have adirect influence in the speed of the ship. This estimation is done using the weatherforecast, obtained from the Internet.To find a route fast enough one must transform the weather forecast data so thatit can be used afterwards for computing the speed. Besides, it is necessary to buildmodels that describe the influence of each one of the meteorological variables in thespeed of the ship for a certain place and time and estimate the journey time fora specific route, depending on the ships characteristics. Finally, the sailing time isoptimized, basically changing the initial route using optimization methods.Keywords: Nonlinear programming, interpolation, splines, ordinary differential equations,genetic algorithms.
