Extinction-o-Meter

Hi,

Due to Nova Sgr 2015 No 2, I ended up writting a piece of code in JavaScript to help me cope with extinction. I played with it for enough time to no longer be able to tell if the software is OK or not, so I need your feedback on it.

The online version can be accessed here:

http://extinction-o-meter.appspot.com/

A tutorial for it is available here:

https://bitbucket.org/herr_alien/extinction-o-meter/wiki/Tutorial

The project page (with links to the same software, but as a browser plugin) is here:

The method to determine the first order extinction coefficient is described here:

Have fun, and do not be gentle :)

"Have fun, and do not be gentle :)" - infamous last words :). Corrected the app to allow negative longitudes, as geolocation reports for everything West ...
