Pirate Buoy allows users to find NOAA buoys based on current location, current address, or specific longitude/latitude coordinates. Once a buoy list is created for a specific location users may view buoy data, map the location of a buoy station, favorite buoy stations (for persistence), and setup a "Buoy Call". "Buoy Calls" are notifications sent to the user (even when the application is not running) when certain user defined data criteria is met. For example, if a user wishes to setup a "Buoy Call" for BUOY_X when the wave height exceeds 4 feet all they have to do is setup this criteria under the "Buoy Call" setup window. The following data items are available under the "Buoy Call" setup window:
Wind Direction Wind Speed Gust Speed Wave Height Dominant Period Average Period Mean Wave Direction Atmospheric Pressure Pressure Tendency Air Temperature Water Temperature Dew Point Visibility Tide (* Rarely available)
"Buoy Call" Notification update every 30 minutes.
Great for surfers, boaters, or general ocean enthusiasts. Enjoy.
