Description

Would it be possible to include a module/display window in TurboWin that would display details from the latest observation on the computers monitor. (The capability to close this, or relocate box should be given to Master’s who might not like it on their monitor.)

I would like to recommend a future change for TurboWin software that might help engage Master’s more in the QC and monitoring of observations sent by their ships.

Would it be possible to include a module/display window in TurboWin that would display details from the latest observation on the computers monitor. (The capability to close this, or relocate box should be given to Master’s who might not like it on their monitor.) It should include:

Observation date/time:
Sea Level Pressure (hPa):
True Wind (Dir/Spd):
Temperature/RH (Deg C/Deg F):
Sea Water Temperature:
Swell Dir/height:

If a Master goes to the computer to check e-mail and he sees that the last observation taken was 2 days ago, he might get on the crew about taking observations regularly. At least he is aware that they are not being taken regularly.

He might look at the observation that was a few hours old and notice that the wind direction is far different than what he sees from the wind wave. He could ask the observer how he came up with his observed wind, and if needed conduct on the spot training. Perhaps a front passed, but then the observer would need to explain that to the Master. (good training)

In the hands of a motivated Master this could be an excellent real-time QC tool.

This is just an original thought and would need refinement, but I wanted to see what you think of the idea.
