phpBuoy is a simple little PHP script which parses the
realtime buoy data provided by the National
Data Buoy Center and presents it in a nicely formatted HTML
table. It's quite easy to use as a PHP include and can
get data for any buoy listed on the NDBC site.
phpBuoy comes with complete customization instructions
within the file, including the ability to display wind and temperature
data in either metric or English units, select from 12 or 24 hour
time display, and choose from American MM-DD-YYYY or International
DD-MM-YYYY date formats.
phpBuoy should run on any PHP-enabled webserver that has
access to a writable directory (it caches the buoy data for better performance).
phpBuoy is released under the Gnu
General Public License and is completely free to download,
use and modify, provided that appropriate credit is given where
phpBuoy is pretty useful! People from all over the
world have contacted me to let me know what they're doing with the script.
If you get a chance to use it, I'd love to hear about it.
