Re: Weather Routing

Actually... did you make those up or are they somewhat official?

the one "Boat Speed (BSP)" I don't like because it's confusing if it's over ground or water

They are pretty common terms used by instruments & nav software. Some definitions may not be consistent. TWA for example; on some nav software TWA includes Leeway on some it doesn't.

BSP is always speed through water - SOG is always speed over ground.

Re: Weather Routing

Bewitched if you were to have it in html format and add a ".doc" file it will upload provided it is small enough. Thanks very much.

Re: Weather Routing

Hello Sean d'Epagnier,

I met several times a crash and I think I managed to reproduce it easily

I have a boat that I managed to import from another PC on my little netbook. (ASUS EeePC 10 'W 7 Stater.)

I have a GRIB file (Joint here).
I chose not to use the data Climatology

I create multiple configurations that I could compile without problems by boat from the 03/02/2015 to 12h, 15h, 18h, 21 h.
The routes had obtained more than 30 hours.

With a start at 24h, the compilation fails. No problem. I thing that compilation fails because the grib is too short in time (?).

With a start at 24, by checking the checkbox "Last Valid Data Deficient if" then, during compilation, crash.

The crash dump is big. so I zip it and add ".pdf". Here joined, the crash dump and the jpg created with the crashdump. Also, after other jpg That I prepared Before crash.

Best regards, Gilletarom.

Re: Weather Routing

Could you instead please just attach the WeatherRoutingConfiguration.xml Boat.xml and any csv polar files used?

Are you using the latest git compiled from source?

I cannot open the crash dump.

Re: Weather Routing

Terminology from Bewitched Terminology | Official OpenCPN Homepage

Attached is a doc converted from PDF.

Please review, comment and add definitions.
I believe the term Ground Wind is the same as True Wind.

I know not to answer your question about the version of the exe file used to install weather-routing on which I had seen the crash. I had indeed used versions downloaded from the thingie.

At this time, to test your plugin I have access to both PC:
- A PC W XP with a screen of 15 '
- A PC with W7 stater with a screen of 10 '.

Yesterday, on the PC running XP, I re-download and install the official version of the plugin that is about opencpnorg website.
Today I did the same on the other PC.

In both cases, I use the "Default ship" set on the PC running XP (which I transfer to the PC W7).

I have not managed to reproduce the crash. I will continue to test on it.

BUT

I noticed on two PCs, one anomaly that I described below.

Load a grib file, Ok
Open WR, Ok
Configuration, Ok
Set a boat, Ok
Choose Options, OK, except one.

Select date and time
If you enter 02/06/2015 and 0h, no problem. The compilation takes place normally. So, Ok.

If you enter 02/05/2015 and 24, it does not work. No crash, no freeze. The compilation fails. But the date and time are replaced by 01/01/1970 and 0h.See the screenshot.

I think you can easily do the test yourself.

B.R. Gilletarom.

Re: Weather Routing

Hello Sean d'Epagnier,

Just after posting the #715, I saw that in the thingie, there was a ne w Version 1.4001.

I just downloaded and installed.

Run WR 1.4001, Ok
Edit-weather route, Ok
Edit Boat, Not completly Ok.

See screen copy.

It is not possible to drag the screen using the top of window.

I managed to implement it in an unusual way. I put the mouse on the right side, right-click to change the width and I have maintained right-click and I was able to move the window snaps to the right place.

It is not used obviously for an alpha user.

B.R. Gilletarom

Re: Weather Routing

Hello Sean D'Epagnier,

Two crash with 1.4001 download from the thingie ... Pfuuuu ....

By following this link you can recover various files that could allow you to do your own testing.

Crash Stockage de rapports


That said:
- Load Grib Grib file with plugin, Ok,
- Load WR, Ok
- Load config, Ok
- Create two new weahter about, Ok (Newlyn, Jersey)
- Create new wether road, Ok,, from Newlyn to Jersey
- Open Boat window, Ok
- Save Boat with "Save" button, Ok,
- Save and close, Ok.

If I choose out 21h, with or without Climatology, with the use of the latest available values in the grib, compilation ends normally quickly.

If I choose Departure 21h without Climatology without the use of the latest available values in the grib, compilation fails because the grib file is exceeded.

If I choose out 21h, with Climatology without the use of the latest available values in the grib, compilation completes, and not last very long, long time. Pfuuuuu ..... After more than 30 minutes, I have to stop it.

If I choose 24 out even without problem Climatology, compilation starts but does not finish and as with version 1.2, the exchange date is 01/01/1970. (See my previous post # 715)

B.R. Gilletarom.

Re: Weather Routing

Gille this i s a close up of a completed routing. The route is magenta. The close lines are isochrones that represent some very close time interval.

So the top of the boat window is off-screen?

Once you get it in the right place, do the scroll bars work?

I need a bigger screenshot, but I think maybe I recently fixed that bug (case where extrapolated boat speed was negative)
