The Northwest Association of Networked Ocean Observing Systems (NANOOS) Visualization System (NVS) “Boaters” dashboard.
NVS provides easy, free access to real-time (and 6 months of historic) weather and ocean observations, forecasts, data, and visualizations.
What this means in English: Observations, forecasts, and maritime tools tailored for the boating community. Includes tide and current forecasts, digital nautical charts, and marina information. Everybody has easy access to a “NVS Boaters Dashboard” of weather and ocean data for the Pacific Northwest. Real time observations, forecasts, and up to 6 months of history. Also lets you create and save your own routes on NOAA Nautical Charts. Currently only available on-line from your computer, but hopefully mobile coming soon.
