This is great! One click and all the weather info you need. Thanks for sharing your work.
Is it possible to add a non-NOAA weather station to the network? There is a weather station at our marina that is part of a near shore observation network run by Texas A&M University (Pharos Environmental Software.) Being able to add these readings would be great, especially since the nearest NOAA station gives false information whenever the wind blows from the north.

Awesome. Two suggestions (you asked for it):

1. Easier zoom function on the initial map (I had to keep double clicking on the map). Would be nice to have +/- buttons or scroll zoom.
2. Ability to adjust prediction date range on tidal, current graph.

Great great work nonetheless.

WOW! Very impressive. I've already bookmarked it and I'll have a couple of links to it soon from the Frugal Mariner.

Thanks for all of your work. I can't imagine how such a thing is even accomplished.

I added the zoom control. Don't think it will hurt anything so why not?

I want to hear more about the tide date request. Not sure what to do there but I am open to the idea.

The Printer Page has a feature to change the date on the tide plots btw. Pehaps that is what you wanted.

Sincere thanks,

I agree, thank you for this valuable contribution. It has a very "one-stop shop" feel to it. It has pretty much everything. I was going to ask for the zoom feature as well, but you've already added it!

Thumbs up!

Thanks for the change. The printer page option will do the job. But, to let you know, when I tried to find out the graphs for a few days out I checked the edit link and looked around. Print page never crossed my mind. So, it could be helpful for new users to have this option placed at the edit section.

Once again, great project. I am also an open-source software developer so I appreciate the spirit and time you put into this.

I can make the change to the tide edit page but need to work out some details like how to show the user what the date is. I also need to think if this should be sticky or session only. I am thinking session only. For now I put a note in the edit page directing people to the printer page.
