How it works
Newsletters are distributed as Word Documents. Each is saved as an XML file and uploaded to the database. Trip reports can then be extracted from the text and then updated with annotations. Each annotation establishes a fact about the trip: who is the skipper, which boat was used, who was a member of the crew, when the trip started; and also points of interest in the trip and shipping forecasts.
This information allows trips, people, locations and vessels to be interlinked. The view of a trip displays the route of the trip, together with the nearest weather for that place and date/time.
