OCPN has become a very important planning and active navigation
The addition of the 'Mark information' feature gives easy access to a number
of tools without leaving the chart.
In the attached example,I have set up links to:
information with live targets using a special version of Marinetraffic.
based position information from Globalstar
3. Downloading of .gpx and other track formats of Globalstar
4. Collection of .grib data weather forecast
for your area using Ugrib.
5. Display of photos for your area using Picasa with diffuse background.
I hope Dave will consider expanding the space in the Mark information box
as presently only a limited number of links can be accommodated.
OCPN also have the ability to show a dual screen
in Google Earth
well as the display of .grib weather
overlay from the collected .grib data.
Piotr has also developed a special route
planning weather forecasting feature
based on .grib data displayed for each waypoint in the Route
Presently has to be run in a parallell OCPN as it is not compatible with all plugins
at the moment.
