Presenting Data and Information
TideLog almanac

For many years I've been using this Tidelog almanac, both for amateur astronomy and for sport fishing. This log has charming visual representations of ordinarily 'dry' data and it presents dynamic relationships between tides, the moon and sun in a way that is enjoyable and immediately understandable.

The website itself somewhat less than satisfactory; it uses poor quality JPEGs of the actual product rather than an image file made specifically for the web, but you can get an idea of what the design looks like. The actual log is quite well printed and bound nicely.
