Hi people

Is there a tool which downloads automatically the picture(s) for the planes in the Basestation.sqb? Something like SBSPopulate for pictures...?

Thanks

I don't know of any free utilities that will do it. FlightDisplay used to download pictures but they took it out because of copyright infringement issues. ActiveDisplay (http://www.gatwickaviationsociety.org.uk/AD_home.asp) appears to allow you to download pictures but you need to pay £25 a year for that, although there is a 30 day trial.

does SBS-Recource not pull down picture data ?

The basestation db file has a table aircraft with three columns PictureURL1 and PictureURL2 nad PictureURL3. It wouldn't be very hard to write a script or application that does lookups and populates these.

Although there is a picture for many planes there are many many pictures (planes ;)) missing in that 7z archive. ADSBScope IC7K sounds very interesting but sadly I wasn't able to download the file or register in that adsbradar.ru forum. Could anyone upload the software or post a direct link to the download?

Regards
