Having this weather data displayed in OCPN makes a HUGE difference
Thank You! Mark.
Very good that the gribs works for you now.
Thank you, for testing OpenCPN
, you have contributed to the project!
I have added a few thing in the grib plugin documentation
, to cover the scenario that you encountered.
I have also made a note about the grib dialog ending up outside the screen and will raise that with "bdbcat" (project leader). once he is within WIFI range again.
A few other problems are already handled in the 2.6 beta development.
See Nohals post above regarding weather routing and the reason for why there are so few arrows.
University of Washington
are actually producing mesoscale forecasts for your neck of the woods at a much larger ( down to 4 km) resolution than the GFS model, that is used for the common gribs. Try to google
- "mm5 uw". I don't know if there are any gribs available from this project and if OpenCN are able to display them. Still worth looking into!
