This is an application useful for wind-related activities, like sailing, surfing, kite, etc. AndroGrib will read GRIB files containing wind data (GFS/UGRD&VGRD) and will display the wind vectors overlayed to Google Maps, allowing you to browse through the data sets (current and forecasted values).
You can request free GRIB files to SailDocs.com by email, AndroGrib will compose the request email for you. You can also download GRIB files from www.grib.us, but the Android browser seems cannot download the files correctly (it will download only some garbage html instead). If you wish to use grib.us files is better to get them from a PC or via email.
AndroGrib will scan for GRIB files available on the SD-Card on the Download and downloads folders.
GRIB files decoding is performed using JGRIB library: jgrib.sourceforge.net
The app was tested with SailDocs.com and grib.us files. It’s mainly for personal use, but requests and bugs are gladly accepted:
– display pressure isobars
– use offline Open Street Maps
– more customization options
– better error-handling and messages
