Like mapping? PW has:

Argos WebService API

The service provides tracking and monitoring of locations on the earth's surface by satellite processing of signals from a transmitter, either at a fixed station or mounted on a vehicle or other mobile platform. Applications of the satellite monitoring services include observations of oceanic conditions, management of fishing grounds and activities, and monitoring wildlife habitats.

API methods support retrieval of satellite and transmitter positions and processing of tracking data collected by the system. Methods supply locations of transmitters and sensor readings for conditions there along with estimates of error in readings and system diagnostics.
