“Tidal predictions anywhere along the UK coast that can also be used offline via the use of bookmarks.”
Its been an interesting process going from a blank-ish drawing board to this fully fledged universal tide prediction app. Some of the more tricky aspects included:
- Integration of MATLAB libraries
- Partitioning of functionality between client and server
- User expectation analysis
- In app purchasing models
- Custom interactive charting
We hope we have arrived at a good set of compromises, and more importantly a unique app offering unique functionality from a unique scientific capability resident in the National Oceanography Centre.
