Since the route finding optimisation process is a multiobjective one, the emphasis is put on possible application of multiobjective optimisation methods. The paper focuses on two such methods, namely evolutionary algorithms and ranking methods represented by Fuzzy TOPSIS. In addition, a proposed set of optimization criteria is presented. Descriptions of assumed ship and sail models as well as exemplary speed characteristic are also provided. Finally, a proposal of application to a weather routing tool is presented}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Weather Routing, Meteorology, Weather Navigation, Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to an Ideal Solution (TOPSIS), Multi-Objective Evolutionary Algorithms (MOEA), Multiple Attribute Decision Making, Decision Making Method, Information Technology (IT)} }
