Re: FlightAware MLAT restrictions

Yes, these are the anonymized ICAOs that FlightAware is masking based on its block lists. See obj's post here for the details: http://discussions.flightaware.com/post197193.html#p197193 These are indeed making it into my database (including first/last position and altitude), although they do not app...

FlightAware MLAT restrictions

Heads up on some changes to FlightAware's treatment of MLAT: http://discussions.flightaware.com/ads-b-flight-tracking-f21/flightaware-mlat-network-announcement-t37741.html To net it out, they are asking users to limit their use of the FlightAware MLAT results to themselves, with no redistribution.

Range JSON for merged feeds

Andrew,

Would it be possible to write out range json for merged feeds? The use case is for large VRS instances that are merging from multiple geographically dispersed receivers. It would show more of a coverage map than a single receiver's range plot. Thoughts?

Thanks,

Andy

Re: Log aircraft tracked for replay

Hi Andy, so without VRS running I can get the script to run successfully and I get a meaningful flight.csv file but after a while the lock error shows up again - this is with VRS running again - the lock re-appears and the same errors shows up again. Maybe VRS opens this DB in an exclusive mode. Th...

Re: Log aircraft tracked for replay

This is a very interesting project but I am stuck on the following point : Windows : the script running every 5 minutes reports errors that suggest that the StandingData.sqb database is locked and so the flights.csv file is generated with zero content. I'd appreciate any insights. Thanks ! Try rest...

Re: Log aircraft tracked for replay

It isn't really my intention to duplicate my whole site on github - but just to get the skeleton up there for people to develop their own sites. However, I will be adding a search page eventually.

Re: Log aircraft tracked for replay

It appears your mysql binary was compiled without local-infile enabled. You will need to add the following line to both the mysql and mysqld sections of /etc/my.cnf:

Code: Select all

local-infile=1
That should do the trick after restarting mysql.

Re: Log aircraft tracked for replay

Actually, I've updated the repository with a few new files in the webserver directory, including map.php, which will display the route and track for a given database entry. Check it out.
