Hello Anders,

thank you for you work in the weekend.
I change the access to the weather tiles of openportguide.org (not
openharbourguide.org) in the following way to make access easier:
Instead of blocking everybody and giving access to some
servers/applications, now everybody has access and if there is a mayor
misuse of the tiles I will block only these servers/apps. Anyway I
have not explanation for the 202/203 errors we got in the last days.

> http://edu.kde.org/marble.
> For some time, I have been working on making openseamap available in marble,
> and it is now in a state where it is getting quite usable.
> There is a screenshot of marble with the openseamap theme here:

> I have made the marble map theme available for testing here:

> State of the theme:
> * OpenSeaMap tiles are displayed.
> * Sports layer is displayed, and can be turned off 8)
> * There is an "preview" icon with the openseamap logo in it.
> * A description taken from the openseamap FAQ, + a text from the openseamap
> "legal" page warning about using it as a full navigation solution.
> * I have created a legend using openseamap graphics. The legend is covering
> common seamarks and features, but I see in netherlands lots of buoys that
> are
> unfamilliar to me. Should they be in the legend, and if so, what are they?
> * I have not been able to make the seabed ("marine profile") tiles display,
> due to projection problems, so that is currently disabled.
> Other features have to be implemented as plugins for marble:
> * harbour guides. Plugins are needed to get harbours for the current view,
> and/or a weblink implementation in marble, facilitating the weblink kml
> files
> provided by skipperguide for example. Another source is
> openharbourguide.org,
> but I have not looked into that yet (as in how to implement).
> * Tidal scales. I have not been looking into that yet. But likely, this
> needs

> * Meterological data: A plugin for the GRIB data view provided by
> openharbourguide.org, and a plugin for displaying a metorogram (also by
> openharbourguide.org) for any point.
> * Arbitrary route creation is being worked on in marble, and will of course
> be
> available for usage with openseamap.
> I think marble may need a finer grained grid for this purpose, but that
> could
> be useful for other outdoors functions as well.
> Oh, and at some point marble needs to learn to measure in nautical miles ;)
> Thanks to helpful people at openharbourguide, openseamap and marble teams so
> far.
