Hi I'm Bartek from sailing vassel Desperado. I'm currently in panama
and as a retired developer I notice that there is a way to improve little bit the local charts
. I start writing an app / script / program and I'm calling it "depthLoger"
It is an app with collect from nmea
bus or import nmea logs
analyze the data, extract location and depth
. Data is process and at the and it's puts new depth
measurements on kap files. (it's not making kap files from scratch but improve existing one)
is on github you can find it and read more details at this link https://github.com/yOyOeK1/depthLoger
I know that it is not the way to do it but in Panama
where I have +/- 15cm of tides it is ( OK'ish ) for me.
I'm also looking for people who want to contribute in collecting data. I'm looking for now somebody from panama area Caribbean
side. I'm expecting only a nmea logs
