Filter Feeds...

The "to-do" list for Virtual Radar Server is as long as my arm, but if you want to pile more work onto it then this is for you.

Filter Feeds...

Post by dsfh2992 » Mon Mar 21, 2016 6:40 pm

If I have a large merged feed, and want to create a new feed to send to someone else with a subset of that data (say a certain geographic area, or certain ICAO code pattern, etc., is that possible)?

If not, could this be added to the list?

Thanks,
Dan

No, it's not possible.

Originally the feed filter plugin was to have a whitelist / blacklist geofence area, where you could specify the coordinates for two opposite corners of a rectangle on the globe and either filter out aircraft within that rectangle or only allow messages from aircraft within that rectangle. If the plugin supported that then you could have a second installation of VRS, send your feed to that, run the feed filter to get rid of the aircraft you're not interested in and then rebroadcast the result.

I'll add geofencing to the list for the feed filter plugin. Not sure when it'll get done though.
