Decoding of All grib
Post by iconPost by Ventura_317 | 2021-01-05 | 11:25:07

Looking for any post explaining more or less easily how to extract from an All grib file the TWS/TWD of a known position /date !

It really only took scrolling half a page down to find it ;-)

All the code can be find in "cwind.js" used by each race page.

Only difference is it gets the U/V values from a PNG image used as binary data storage instead of GRIB file.

Decoding the GRIB is a bit more involved. I use text dumps internally and convert to my own binary format. GRIB itself is weird.

The current toolkit is

But I still use the old grib api and cnvgrib from NOAA to convert from v2 to v1. From the toolkit I mostly use grib_get_data to dump the U/V values to a set of text files which are further compiled into simple binary array for the router.
