Tyne Tide Times 2011

May 18th, 2011 by Alistair MacDonald Leave a reply »

For a couple of months I am hanging out in an office on the Newcastle quayside with a view of the River Tyne. Being an office totally devoted to work we have been discussing the high and low tides quite a lot. Eventually we downloaded the 2011 Tide Tables PDF from the Port of Tyne web site for no reason what so ever. As I am learning Python properly now I set myself the academic challenge of extracting the high and low tide times from the PDF and placing it in a CSV so I can do something more interesting with the data if not more useful. If you wan to do the same then please have a go. TyneTideTimes2011.zip.

Update: The time in the file is Greenwich Mean Time. For British Summer Time add one hour from 2am March 27th 2011 to 2am October 30th 2011.
