Re: I'm designing an app for sailors - please help!
Concerning graphic weather "data" for sailors.... Are there any "programs" or apps..... which can display different data as layers on the same screen? And if one could control the density/transparency and where in the stack of layers each data graphic was it would allow one to get a more complete understanding of what was going on.
I work with a CAD program which allows layers which can be turned on or off, grayed and moved up or down. So if you are designing a house, for example... you could have a layer showing the walls, another with lighting.. another with wiring... another with materials, or furniture. I find use of layers a very powerful tool.
Why not have environmental data available as layers?
pay attention... someone's life depends on it
