Looking for simple software to graph from VRS

Hi Folks, I feed flightaware, but I'm not all that gone on the output from the stats page. I'd like to revert to dump1090 running on my PI2 and use it to feed VRS on my Linux desktop. I'm already doing this on the PI Aware image, and it's been nicely writing a database over a month or two now. I'd l...

Re: Feed/Run VRS from MySQL Database

I do like the sound of this idea. Hope it comes to something!

Re: Altitude bug

Agree, seen a few of late. Faulty gear in the plane?

Not just altitudes either. crazy distances, in fact better described as un-realistic offsets being seen.

Setting Rx range

Hello folks, When setting the max range for the receiver, I note the figure is in Kilometres, and there's no option at all for say Nautical Miles. Surely since this is aviation then the standard system of measurement should at least be an available option? If I am wrong about that then, please, by a...

What is going wrong with this?

I just got treated to this; see the route info at the bottom, use the rest to realise this simply can not be right!

Re: list - mlat sorting does not work

Agreed, and as I posted a little while back. Had not seen your post at the time.

Hope it gets remedied.

Re: How VRS displays aircraft icons

I'd really appreciate some time taken to allow VRS to know how to show glider types correctly. They are beautiful to see and watch, but not so much when they are represented by a generic icon. ;) They do seem to be a somewhat special case as there really are so many variants, and all valid as far as...

Re: .out and .wpt file support?

OK, it can at first seem to be a right faff, to make them, but I like being able to make a list of airfields I want to see! I'm seldom happier than to see my list show up on the map as I compile and add to it. It makes your map truly yours, and that counts for a lot. It would be nice if we could def...

Re: Missing report criteria?

No. You can filter by airport, which does what you suggest, but that only works for the live aircraft. I'll add an Airport criteria to the list of things to do. Thank you, there may be others I noticed, but now forgot about. I'll see if I can recall them over time. Can't promise because I'm old and...

Re: Map range circles

It's because the earth is a sphere and Google Maps is showing you a 2D rectangle, so the sphere needs to be projected onto the rectangle. You can read up on the specific projection they're using here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_Mercator If you follow the links on there through to the discuss...
