Encode/decode NOAA co-ops marine data and marine AIS
Library for handling marine Automatic Identification System (AIS) messages and NOAA marine data messages from http://opendap.co-ops.nos.noaa.gov/axis/. Has extensions to handle the USCG N-AIS receive fields. The SOAP code is a bit rusty and now uses pydap.
For AIS ship traffic, noaadata provides bridges to sqlite3 and postgresql/postgis databases. Is able to generate Google Earth KML files for AIS.
Part of the UNH/NOAA Chart of the Future project.
Still in development. Some rough edges.
