Data Collecting Buoys on Google Maps
The Buoy Alarm: Map of Available Buoys allows users to observe ocean conditions from data collecting buoys.
All of the available buoys are displayed on a Google Map. Each buoy records the swell height, the swell period and the wind direction. To observe the data from a specific buoy the user just needs to click on its map marker.
Each buoy also includes a link to view historical data from that location for the last few days and a forecast of conditions for the next few days.
