Waypoints and nav aid in VRS

Hi,

I just finish to enhance https://github.com/vradarserver/vrs-waypoints a little :
  • Do a program that convert fix.dat and nav.dat from X-plane10/FlightGear to a html file usable by vrs-waypoints
  • Change vrs-waypoints to have more info in tooltips
It's here : https://github.com/TLeconte/vrs-waypoints
It displays fix, vor, vor-dme, vortac, ndb and loc (ils), with tooltips for each icon displayed on the map.

It works well, but I have a problem : it seems that addMarker set iconAnchor in topleft corner when I need to center the icon on the given position.
I'm completely new to VRS plugins. Is it a way to improve that ?

Edit : I forget to say, that my wptgen is only for Linux

I answer to myself :roll:
icon property could have a size and anchor field ....
It's fixed now

By the way I installed that plugin but I don't see any waypoint.

Is it supposed to work only under X-Plane etc or works with real adsb planes as well ?

Thanks ;)

You will have to generate the waypoints.html first.
For that, you must compile the wptgen program.
It's for Linux.
Then ran it for your center position.
I could ran it for you if you give me a approximately center position and a way to send you the result.

I now add a waypoints.html file as example, so man could try the plugin without generating it's own waypoints.html.
This waypoints covers West of France/South England.
For another region see the README on how to generate a waypoints.html for your region.

Sorry to continue my monologue, but I updated the nav.dat and fix.dat to largely more recent versions.
So, if you have generated your own waypoints.dat, or used the default one just update and redo ...

Yes I could do , but how I could send you the result ?
Private messages in this forum have a size limit that is too low for this kind of file.
PM a mail address or a place to put the result.
