More GPS stuff

Following my note about Gmap Pedometer, a reader (who wanted to remain anonymous) has pointed me at the cool GPSVisualizer.com.

On a related topic, what about detailed weather forecasts? I’ve started using Metcheck.com to get fantastically precise cycling-related information about likely temperatures, wind directions and speeds, UV index, cloud cover, etc specific to precise locations.

It doesn’t have to be for cycling, of course (other hobbies include fishing, gardening, sailing, climbing and aviation), and there will be numerous work-related uses: construction project managers could enter their site post-code and get a detailed forecast about conditions ahead of that vital concrete pour, etc.
