Hover function

(1) It would be very helpful if when the mouse cursor is over any graphic on the screen, no matter an object, line, current or wind arrow, that a dialog box can pop up explaining what it is. Inside the dialog box also show information for that spot on the map, e.g. set & drift, wind vector, wave height, depth, and other information.

(2) For those not using a mouse (e.g. a pad), or for just wanting information at a point in the map where there is not graphic, perhaps a right button click is needed. If the right click is held more than 1/2 seconds the dialog box would appear offering information on the graphic, if there is one, and show information for that spot on the map, e.g. set & drift, wind vector, wave height, depth, and other information.

(3) Offer us an option. while doing the above, to get a table and graph showing how the above will change over time. E.g. like some of our chartplotters show a sign wave with information on set & drift, allow us to quickly scan forward and back in time to understand how the data is predicted to change (compilation of all predictive data sources) as the user scrolls back and forth, perhaps with the wheel on their mouse.

Re: Hover function

What you are describing is similar to the Tooltip function, and also the https://www.dropbox.com/s/l71nyh340sq5q3p/Screenshot%202020-09-15%20115455.jpg?dl=0
