Subsurface dive log software - Dive Site Sharing

Post by orcasc205 » Sun Aug 04, 2019 12:20 pm

Hi,

For those of you that use Subsurface (http://www.subsurface-divelog.org) to log your dives, you may have noticed that version 4.9.1 was just released. One of the new features that I helped add to the 4.9 version is the ability to import and export dive sites from the program as XML files so you can share the information with your dive buddies that dive the same sites.

To help encourage this, I've also been working on a website that is a dive site directory where you can search for dive sites either on a map or by text searches on name or location. Dive sites from Subsurface can be uploaded to the website and the sites can be exported in the correct XML format for Subsurface to use.

I'm wondering if anyone is interested in being a beta user for the website to help test it out. You don't even have to be a Subsurface user if you just want to use the site to browse the available dive sites and to manually add your own sites. PM me if you are interested.

-Doug

I’m definitely interested in a database of dive sites for subsurface! Would also help out on the site if you need any.

You may want to take a look at Subsurface (http://subsurface-divelog.org). It runs on Mac, Windows or Linux desktops and there are Android and iOS apps available. Due to screen size limitations, the phone apps don't have all of the features of the desktop app (mostly the Deco Planning functions are missing), but they are adequate for logging dives. Best of all it's free.
