While the next full version product release is quite a ways off, an update is now available with some important functionality users have been asking about.
PolarView NS 1.4.72 is now available for download. This update brings:
– Improved support for BSB charts using datums other than WGS84
– GRIB display now supports precipitation rate (“rain”), and precipitation data has been added to Polar Navy GFS GRIB data download.
– GRIB display now supports ocean currents and water surface temperature display. New data model for Atlantic ocean currents has been added to our GRIB download service. Based on excellent Real-Time Ocean Forecast System for Atlantic waters, provided by NOAA, this data is useful to all mariners looking for Atlantic current and water temperature information. You know what that means – fishing 🙂
The update is available for download now.
