Local tide info

Posted by Karamon, 01-14-2010, 12:35 PM
Hello, I tried some unfruitful google searches and wanted to draw on others' experiences. I'm currently looking for local tide information for my area. A free resource would be preferred, but isn't necessary. I also know that tides 'could' be pre-calculated, and if anyone knows anything about this that would be neat. Thanks for your collective help in advance!

What did you Google for? I hit a U.S. tide chart right away.

I need something that I can pull in to PHP, I don't think loading in a full web page and filtering out the content that I want is the cleanest solution, although may be necessary. I'm looking for more of a SOAP or API call that I can make, much like the weather channel has for weather forcasts.

Interesting question. I found a free program called Xtide, which has a command-line interface as well as a GUI. It also has a web server option. http://www.flaterco.com/xtide/
