* '''Visualising Textual Data'''. HMNAO provide an online service named Websurf - [http://astro.ukho.gov.uk/psp/index_beta.html see here]. It provides rise/set times, azimuth and altitudes, Islamic Prayer Times, First Sighting of New Crescent Moon, Moon Phases, Equinoxes & Solstices and an Almanac giving solar, lunar and planetary data for a specific time and location. It has recently gone through a phase of redevelopment to make it more user friendly. One item that is still in development is the output and output formats. We have various output formats that we are looking into but what would be useful and possibly attract users from all backgrounds would be visualising some of the outputs. For example, ideas on how to visualise a years worth of sun rise/set and twilight times?
