Pavel has recompiledGrib_pii for Opencpn
v 4.1.602 and it can be found on the Opencpn
I have tested this plugin with Weather_routing and it works fine. I like the new options and icons for changing the amount of real estate, yet when you want data at the cursor it is easy to open it up. Also the selection for various data types is simple and easy with just the right data available, nice job.
I had to enable wind
particle maps after testing with weather
routing, just for kicks. I ran it on a big grib and really started learning
about wind! The visualization enhancements are wonderful, with the various colors for wind
speed and the way the system flow is represented. Stepping through a grib file this way, you can visualize how the winds will affect your routing, aiding comprehension. A great way to learn more from the data.
Unfortunately at the end of the grib, viewing particle maps, just stepping through the frames, at the last frame Opencpn froze and I had to force it to close. I will try to make it do this again.
Ok it did it again. It is not the last frame that it fails on. It is several days before.
I am going to try to attach the grib file.
Please download the file from the main directory of Opencpn Beta File thingie rguser rgpass Remove the doc.
