The UK Hydrographic Office (UKHO) has successfully launched its new ADMIRALTY EasyTide platform following extensive research on enhancing its tidal product portfolio.
The new ADMIRALTY EasyTide service provides free access to 7-days’ tidal predictions for over 600 UK port locations, displayed as a tide table and tidal curve. The newly launched website has been redesigned to improve usability and built to ensure responsiveness across desktop, mobile and tablet devices whilst users access UKHO’s considerable well of UK tidal data.
The announcement follows the news in April 2021 that EasyTide would become a free-to-use service for the current day plus subsequent six days’ tidal predictions for UK port locations from September 2021.
The design and usability improvements of the new website will support leisure users and enable safer activities at sea, such as watersports, beach going, coastal walking and sailing.
As part of the new transition, Enhanced Predictions will no longer be available. Instead, UKHO is encouraging customers to explore their wider tidal product portfolio, including its ADMIRALTY Tidal Prediction Service, UK Tidal APIs, ADMIRALTY TotalTide and stock of Leisure Charts.
