Waypoints and nav aid in VRS

Post by TLeconte » Fri Nov 02, 2018 10:06 pm

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 ...

Hi Dear tleconte,
I very much appreciated your beautiful work of the Aids Nav and waypoints
I am unfortunately not experienced in Linux software and therefore I was unable to get my file wapoints.html of my area 43.60 and 10.41.So I ask at your possible and kind willingness.
Thank you so much and I send you sincerely regards,
Francesco

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.
