Nobody knows at the moment which of those projects will keep on growing or stay alive. And as mentioned already in this thread there a dozens around the web at the moment. Each with its own API, storage
1) The area selection could be done like the one in many of the GRIB viewers just by drawing a rectangle and sending the coordinates with the request to the server.
The right way to go I think. To depend to much on one of these projects would be wrong. I think it would be nice to build an API into opencpn
, then test it with some small server. Let these web based projects develop an interface if they like. I would not like opencpn
to be bounded to only one of them! If we find don't find a good server based system we could use good old serverless P2P.
