The graphs and comparisons can be used to make tests and for sampling as well. The utility uses a Java MDI application, which helps in generating graph for multiple locations at a single moment of time. The application helps to print graphic tidal charts, export databases, or create sets of HTML pages, each summarizing a month of tidal forecasts. The software can help in generating HTML pages by downloading to a PDA for a quick tidal reference in the field, or published on any Web site. The utility can be run on any possible computer. The application also predicts the tidal activity for a particular month. Forecasts can be done for specific date as well as time. One can choose from any of a large set of US and international tide and current prediction locations. The results can be modified in several ways.
