I have some questions about GRIB (before posting
another feature request on SF
It seems thatOCPN only interprets GRIB1 so far. Is that right?
If so, I would like to request support for GRIB2.
And as many sailers outside the US aren't that happy to be supplied with such high-quality data, it is really important to use any (legally) available source.
One of the most interesting ones is the German BSH (BSH Startseite
They are also offering currents information as GRIB files (ftp://ftp.bsh.de/Stroemungsvorhersagen/
), but I could not manage to view/ show them in OCPN (neither GRIB1, nor GRIB2 format).
Can anybody with a deeper knowledge than me have a look, please?
There are information about changing format from GRIB2 to GRIB1. Maybe this of certain interest, too?
In my opinion this has a very high priority because it is one of the really rare sources with a large coverage for Europe
and could help making more and more skippers using OCPN. And (at least a basic
) GRIB support is already implemented in OCPN.
