Here's something neat: visualize an expected balloon flight in 3D based on a windy trajectory:
The GPX file was created with windy.com and the traj plugin. It includes an ascent and descent phase of 2m/s and level flight at 1500m. The GPX file was then uploaded to ayvri.com (free account required).
The ayvri visualization is based on cesium.js - for the curious, play here: https://cesiumjs.org/Cesium/Apps/Sandcastle/index.html?src=CZML Path.html
I have just released version 0.3.0 of the plugin! This update adds details about the moon position. The moon position is shown on the map similar to the sun position. Additional dotted lines show the moonrise and moonset directions. The detail pane also includes the moonrise and moonset times and some details about the current position of the moon. The moon display can be hidden by clicking the moon button the top of the details pane.
Furthermore, I have added options to hide some sun details, grouped by Astronomical and Photography. Astronomical shows astronomical, nautical and civil twilight times and Photography shows blue and golden hour times. Both groups can be enabled together, showing all times as before the update (nautical twilight was wrongly labeled blue hour before the update, while blue hour really is part of the civil twilight).
A fire map is planned for a next future:
Meanwhile you can visit this website which gives a global view of fires in the world:
That's probably something we can try.
The thing is that different model report different things.
I think that EC has all of model elevation, actual elevation and sfc temp while GFS only has actual? elevation.
I have chosen to use the model elevation when available because what's below probably do not make a lot of sense ?
Hi Peter. I am working on a flight planner, that you might find useful. The plugin calculates ground speed, from your IAS and Wind speed at your chosen alt, and determines the corrected ETE.
Can I ask: What is your airspeed ? (74kph). What are your waypoints?
