Fishing Smart Trip Map

Current and Upcoming Conditions

This Google map based web application brings all the resources that I want as a fisherman into one website. Instead of going to four or five different websites to check out weather forecasts, current weather conditions, stream flows, tide charts, moon phase, and hatch charts to determine where conditions are going to be best for my next fishing trip, I simply go to Fishing Smart Trip Map!

Trip Planner

Once I've figured out where I'm going to go on my next trip, I simply create a Trip and set markers on my map as my origin and destinations. As a logged in user, all my markers and notes are saved, so it's simply a matter of clicking a button to add markers as Trip Waypoints. The trip waypoints enable getting driving directions.

Establishment Search

Depending on where I'm going, I may need a hotel, campground, local fly shop, restaurants, etc. With my map centered and zoomed into the place I'm making my home base, I simply go to the Trip Planner tab and search for an establishment such as "fly shop". This produces a list of all the nearby fly shops sorted from nearest to farthest, and populates my map with numerical markers corresponding to each one. I can click on a marker to get the address, phone number, and even a link to the establishment's Google+ page with more information and customer reviews.

Hatch Charts

In the Trip Planner, Hatch Charts tab you will find a filterable list of U.S. rivers. Clicking on one will bring up a hatch chart for that river. These are not your run of the mill hatch charts, either! Each chart includes a link that will center your map on the location of the river and a link that will load a stream flow gauge for that river. The coolest feature, however, is that each insect's latin name is a link that will load an image viewer allowing you to browse photos of the actual insect.

Fishing Journal / Fishing Log

Two options are provided for keeping a fishing journal, the QuickJournal Fishing Log, and the Online Journal Page.

The QuickJournal functions as your log to track fish you've caught, where they were caught, and what the conditions were at that time. This, of course, is the invaluable record that all of us avid fishermen rely upon to fine tune our fishing in various locations in all of the varying seasonal conditions we encounter.

The Online Journal Page provides a blog-style rich editor where you can write up the stories of your fishing trips and include photos of all those hogs you caught, the scenery, etc.

JsTestUtilities

Jasmine Test Utilities Library

This library enables running non-trivial tests using an iFrame. The library solves the 'fixtures' problem, i.e. fixtures in Jasmine are a fixed-in-time representation of a UI or UI control, and can produce false positives when the dynamic UI elements have changed.

The library provides a means of addressing numerous issues, e.g. properly traversing the test vs. iframe namespace, handling async script loading, async event handling, etc.

The source code, tests, and complete documentation can be found here on Github.

The Nuget package for JsTestUtilities can be found here on Nuget.org.
