Fun With Weather

I feel a bit like Iīm in grade 5 again - For my holiday project I did... But thatīs basically what this was - a holiday project to build a better weather reporting system for my web pages - and thatīs exactly what I think Iīve managed to do...

The new system used feeds from a myriad of sources and I can easily add more. Basically each feed builds up whatever data it can into a central summary object that then reports it all out. It uses the Lat/Long to calculate the sunrise and sunset times as well as the moon phase. It computes some averages and spits out the whole thing on a web page or in an email.

The sample Below is taken from which was the main reason I created it - however I bet anyone cruising the waters of the Straight of Georgia may find that page useful. It updates as soon as the various stations do - so the information is as Current as it can be. It even includes satellite and web cam images (not shown) that update automatically as well.
