Using the following API operation a location can be created.
A location can be used when tracking a ship to a destination defined by a location – similar to directly defining the destination to be a position, which is also an option. The advantage of using a location instead of a position is though, that a location, can easily be reused by referencing the name. At the same time the position of a location can easily be updated at one place.
For usage example see Create location.
