Oceanographic Data & Weather Conditions


Real-time feeds are read in and parsed from the NDBC, a part of the NWS. NDBC designs, develops, operates, and maintains a network of data collecting buoys and coastal stations. Buoy locations are defined in custom flat files containing station data including longitude and latitude.

The user selects a location, a map is then displayed of that area, with each buoy marked on the map with a station code. Current weather and atmospheric conditions will be listed for each buoy on the map as well as in a table below. The map will dynamically run through these data values and display them on the map in a loop.

If more detail information is wanted on that specific buoy, the user can click that buoy.

Data displayed in table and map:

  • Station ID
  • Location
  • Time Readings Taken
  • Air Temperature
  • Water Temperature
  • Wind Speed
  • Wind Direction
  • Wind Gust
  • Barometer
  • Barometer Trend
  • Wave Height
  • Wave Period
