A lot of walks on BeyondTracks go past a beach, and on a hot day it’s nice to go for a dip along the walk.
The NSW Department of Environment publishes information about beach conditions, similar to how we work with Fire Incidents from the NSW Rural Fire Service, we pull in beach conditions data and show this on the maps on BeyondTracks.
We open sourced our Node module which makes the Beachwatch GeoRSS feeds more developer friendly, in particular to:
- use GeoJSON instead of the XML based GeoRSS
- include data only, void of any formatting
