Sunrise & Sunset in calendar

Sunrise & Sunset in calendar

Postby Vonni » Wed Jan 26, 2011 5:16 pm

Hi,
for me the sunrise and sunset times are really important for the planning of a training, because I want to run at daylight, if possible. So now I have added the sunrise and sunset times in the calendar in version 1.0.020126 fixed 1.0.020127:
http://www.lyrikecke.de/ryg/ReachYourGo ... .st3plugin

First you have to configure your location in the settings.
Image

The latitude and longitude have to be entered as decimal (48.79 and 9.19) like the sample for Stuttgart (Germany) at the bottom of the page:
http://www.gaisma.com/en/location/stuttgart.html

Latitude: +48.79 (48°47'24"N)
Longitude: +9.19 (9°11'24"E)

For north and east the values are positive - for south and west negative.

After this you can click on a date in the calendar and you should see the sunrise and sunset times.

Image


Please could you check if the times are correct for your location? I have seen sometimes a difference from one minute, but I think that is acceptable.


Thanks! :)
Viele Grüße / Best regards

Works fine for me. Useful.

Something I have been thinking about too. Other "Planning info" could be added in an ActivityPage too, but info may come from several plugins which makes it complicated.

A feature wish to shoot down: When running, I am interested in the Civil Time, when biking Actual time and hiking Nautical time. Of course having all info always will be cluttering and there is no easy way to relate from other data, without complicated setup. (Naming of twilight same as wunderground)

Vonni,

Do not laugh, please, but for me it shows exactly the same time as sunrise than as sunset. And it does not change when I click a different day.

Can you kindly check?

Well well, Im not suprised if anybody would have suggested such a wild idea, as lots of users do come up with weird ideas, but vonni.... :roll:

Sunrise and sunset are obviously not very different from day to day and therefore I know what will happen tomorrow from todays number. More important for running outside should be cloud cover and other weahter variables as they have much more impact on "dayslight" as sunrise/sunset, which doesnt really change at all during a period.

Mornings In winter are dark and in summer are not :wink:

Hi Hennes,
I'm completely alone responsible for this weird idea. There was no influence from outside. :wink:
That's the biggest advantage of being the developer: I have to convince nobody of the necessity. 8)

I know that many of the runners and cyclists don't care about the daylight, but I do. I don't like to run alone in the dark - for many reasons. Surely it's not really important to know the time of the sunrise for tomorrow, but I'm often interested in the times in two or three weeks (during the dark seasons), when I create my training plan. For me this information is important for my generally time planning in conjunction with work, family, other hobbies and plugin programming. At last everything hat to be balanced. :wink:

Sure, I do too - but I doubt that this does changes anything outside :wink:

Instead I love to look at a detailled weather forecast with show sunshine hours (if there are any), so I can time my run to the little spots with sunshines these days

Looks like that:

Next days it aint important as there seems to be lots during the day, but usually its less and good to know whether to plan for the morning or afternoon.

>>> http://wetterstationen.meteomedia.de/me ... 07400.html <<<...looks as you should plan a lot of time for running for the weekend :evil:

Hi Elisa,
ok, I can reproduce this issue with your data. I will later look about the problem. Really weird. Everything works fine with my coordinates. :roll:

Hi,
there was an issue with the timezone calculation and negative latitudes.

Could you all try the feature again with this update (version 1.0.020127)?

Hi Gerhard,
ooops - I'm obstrained with this terms - and I couldn't find a translation in leo.org. :oops:

Could somebody explain me this in german or Gerhard, could you explain it better or give me some samples?
If I understand the differences between "Civil Time", "Acutal Time" and "Nautical Time", I can look what I can do.

Thanks.

Hi Hennes,
ok - I thought the same.

But I can't understand the advantage of the different time formatting (without the ":") for sunrise/sunset? :roll:
At the moment the format should be like this: "14:00".

Maybe he was refering to ZULU ie: To show all the times in GMT (UTC) time.

If you are an USA soldier or you work in an USA camp, base, ... your time is ZULU (I wear two watches for a while)

Yes Hennes, is correct. And that is the format I'm getting "14:00" which I thought was military time. :?: Would like to see it as "2:00" instead of the "14:00", Just lazy I guess :oops: and don't want to do the math of subtracting 12. But it was just a thought. :roll: So no big deal on it if it is a big programing thing.

Umm ... I suppose this is always the same thing: European format vs. US format. It is exactly the same if the weeks starts on Sunday or the weeks starts on Monday. And, btw: it is sunrise (always am) and sunset (always pm). It is just the format you are used to.

Vonni, can it be an option?

No, it was no great thing to do - and it's already done in the new version of today. :wink:

Hi Ellie,
yes, you're right. When I played around with the programming of the sunrise/sunset times, I haven't looked about the correct formatting of the time. Sorry... :oops: In the version of today the time should be displayed in compliance with the windows locale settings. :)
