converting paper charts to e-charts
In this part of the world (SE Britain, the 'Norfolk Broads') a recurring problem involves dew. Last night was awful, partly from the seeing but also because it was so damp my charts were sticking together! I use paper charts in those transparent plastic pockets.
I have decided to convert my paper charts to e-charts for use on a handheld device (I don't actually have a handheld device as yet, though!) and with this in mind have designed a VB app that converts downloaded AAVSO charts into red-stars-on-black-background. I would like to take this further to produce another app which, through a dropdown box, does a search for your chosen star and then displays it, including a zoom facility. Only problem is that currently I have about 6-700 charts...
One other possibility for our hardworking softie dev team... make an option on VSP to download red-on-black charts!
