Tide monitoring, alerting, and prediction
One of the benefits of tide monitoring is the idea of real-time reporting. Let’s say you are out on a boating trip and want to come back to the dock. If the tide levels are low, you will not be able to pass into the bay. People in the area are signing up for alerts and monitoring feeds to tell when the tide is rising or falling. Since the data is relayed to the cloud, we can also mash up existing databases of tide levels to show differences, improve accuracy, and predict future levels and conditions.
