The Chesapeake Conservancy is proud to support the NOAA Chesapeake Bay Interpretive Buoy System (CBIBS) "smart buoys" project. The CBIBS "smart buoys" collect and transmit real-time weather and water data. CBIBS supports the use and management of a healthy Chesapeake Bay by providing the data and information needed to improve safety, enhance the economy, and protect the environment.
Ratings and Reviews
Downloaded to see the winds from yesterday’s 29+ knots around the Bay. The Annapolis buoy is apparently not yet back in the water, so no data there. And when I click on Potomac, it remains stuck on the Annapolis data page, giving me nothing from any other station.
If this is only a seasonal app, please add a help section to clearly identify that status. Otherwise it is just poor programming with lots of bugs.
Great info but...
It's great to have this info easily accessible, but if the buoy is offline, please don't keep month-old data showing. It's very confusing- especially since the date/time font size is so very tiny. It would also be nice to know if/when offline bouys are expected to be back up.
Great to boaters
Great information for the recreational boater on the Chesapeake. I hope future versions include preferences so you can set the display order of the data you want to see the most and to change units (knots/mph/m/s, etc.). I highly recommend this app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
