TIDAL PREDICTION PROGRAMS
WXTide32 version 4.7
Please note that I have had to remove the download of WXTide32 v. 2.6 following the threat of legal action by the UKHO thought police. This is the latest version, which does not include the UKHO 'copyrighted' harmonic constants. It does however include 44 new UK stations and major new features such as support for World Vector Shoreline maps and binary TCD harmonic constituent files.
JTides is an advanced, accurate, easy-to-use tide and current prediction program. JTides predicts tides and currents using a large database of US and worldwide locations. It graphs its predictions in many useful ways. In comparison tests, JTides' predictions are in good to excellent agreement with a sampling of published and on-line tide tables. Please note - you will also need the latest java runtime engine to run this program - visit the program's home pagefor details.
GPS UtilityAn easy-to-use application that provides management and manipulation of GPS information. You can use it to transfer data to/from a GPS receiver and store the data in PC files in one of several text formats.
