Sharing Data

#1

Post by ZA-FAPE » Wed Jul 21, 2010 10:51 am

Living in the sticks makes it essential for me to be able to see the aircraft of others. There is also a huge community out there that shares information that enables us to identify aircraft that appear on our screens. There is already a topic on links for sources of data but none on how you can share your data. In a country where bandwidth costs a fortune sharing does have a cost implication. Here are the options:

Radarbox Network
This is obviously the best option for other Radarbox users as it allows Radarbox users worldwide to see your aircraft if connected to the network. To share your data you go to File-Preferences-RadarBox-Share Flight Data. Whenever you are connected to the internet your data will be available for other to see.
I have not worked out how much bandwidth this uses - I still need to do a test.

Flightradar24.com
http://www.flightradar24.com/
Supplying data to this website will also allow other people to see your aircraft with ADS-B on the map on that website. To supply data you need to send an email to info@flight24.com and they send you a small program that runs in the background. The software is easy to install. Note it does not start automatically on boot up so you need yo put a shortcut in your startup menu if you want that. The bandwith used is approx 25meg a month. Note that people with other brands of ADS-B receivers also contribute to this website. I am the only person in SA uploading information here.

RadarVirtuel.com
http://www.radarvirtuel.com/
This website is identical to Flightradar24 as to usage, bandwidth costs, etc.The only differences are the email address for the software is radarvirtuel@free.fr and that their map always opens in Europe unlike Flightradar24 which opens where you closed last time. You can get over this by saving the link to that map - the whole of South Africa is covered by this link http://www.radarvirtuel.com/?lat=-29.45 ... 125&zoom=6
I am uploading to this site as are another 1 or 2 from SA. I think one person uploading is not a Radarbox user but has another brand of receiver but have not yet confirmed that.

LibHomeRadar
http://www.libhomeradar.org/
This is a database of aircraft - no map display. The information you upload goes into the database of aircraft, flight numbers, Mode S codes flights seen, etc.
To contribute you need to download software from http://www.libhomeradar.org/contribution.html This software requires some setup but the instructions are reasonable. You need some computer skills to set it up. The software allows a mode S lookup. It also displays unknown aircraft and flight numbers and allows you to update the database.
I do not know how much bandwith this takes but the information indicates that it is not great - I would estimate in the order of 25meg a month but it does depend on how often you download the database and how often you update information.
I am not sure I have even got it working yet

Military Planes
http://live-military-mode-s.eu/
Installation file and instructions are at http://share.live-military-mode-s.eu/V1.1a/ This software gives the option of uploading live or manually in batches. Contributors to this site get access to two Mode S databases - http://www.live-civil-mode-s.eu/ and http://www.live-govt-mode-s.eu/
As with other uploads bandwidth depends on the activity in your area. Only one small record is added per flight.

Thanks for this - a nice summary of what is available. I will definitely look into it. However, I think the true benfits of something like this will only be seen through people who are able to be online 24.7.

Is that the display you get from using the FR24 box? Is it web based?

It's one we made and yes it's local http://radar.3dronemap.com:9090/Virtual ... ktop.html#

So if you have a feed you would like to forward your data can be there as well....

Its 10 receivers, mostly in KZN with one in GP and one in the Cape.

It's very easy to use http://www.virtualradarserver.co.uk/ too many howto's all over the web for me to add to them.

There are two ways to get data to a combined map,

Port forwarding

and

VRS, using the rebroadcast server tab.

If anybody is interested we can lead you by the hand if you care to PM me.
