Many aircraft broadcast information about how accurate their navigation system, which is almost always GPS, is at any given moment. The GPSJam map aggregates that data over 24 hours in time bins it into a hexagonal map. Green hexagons show where more than 98% of all aircraft who flew through that area reported good navigation accuracy. Yellow hexagons show where between 2% and 10% of aircraft reported low navigation accuracy. Red hexagons show where more than 10% of aircraft reported low navigation accuracy.
Data is pulled from ADSB Exchange.
skies-adsb is a virtual plane spotting progressive web app / virtual aquarium (with aircraft instead of fish) / interactive real-time simulation. Aircraft are tracked via unfiltered ADS-B transponder data in real-time and rendered in 3D. The ADS-B data source is meant to be a RTL-SDR receiver connected to a Raspberry Pi running on your home network. Flight status data is provided by the FlightAware AeroAPI v2. The aircraft photos are provided by Planespotters.net.
Scripts and stuff for manipulating the json files generated by FlightAware's version of dump1090. Mostly command line and ncurses.
Aircraft owners or designated representative may request limiting aircraft data displayed (formally referred to as blocking) or unblocking of flight tracking data. Limiting aircraft data from the FAA data systems will limit flight tracking information transmitted over the Internet. “Unblocking” will ensure aircraft flight data will be included in the FAA data feed utilized by internet flight tracking vendors.
A wholly unnecessary replacement for Dump1090's web interface for tracking ADS-B equipped aircraft.
Simple program to decode ADS-B signals from an RTLSDR and track aircraft on a map. Makes use of a Dash webserver to display the dashboard.
My Advisory Circular network of twitter bots post in real-time whenever they detect aircraft flying in circles over cities around the world, including Los Angeles, Baltimore, Portland, Minneapolis, and London. The bots often tweet about news and fire aircraft, and because they use an uncensored source of data they also tweet police, FBI, DHS, DEA, CBP, and military aircraft. They look for circles because it means an aircraft is doing something instead of going somewhere. If you've ever asked “what is that helicopter/plane?” there’s a good chance my bots can answer your question—even if it's an advanced military surveillance plane.
Graphs for dump1090 (based on dump1090-tools by mutability). Message rate, aircraft seen, tracks seen, range, signal strength... front end to rrdtool and collectd.
A personal, open source air traffic map. Designed for use on boxen that are RTL-SDR enabled, monitoring ADSB traffic, and are running a web server. Connects to the network port of dump1090-fa, readsb, dump1090, dump1090-mutability, or skyaware978 for its data. All-in-one installation script. Implemented with a shell script.
The OpenSky Network was initiated in 2012 by researchers from armasuisse (Switzerland), University of Kaiserslautern (Germany), and University of Oxford (UK). The objective was (and still is!) to provide high quality air traffic data to researchers. By now, the OpenSky Network has become a non-profit association based in Switzerland and is supported by a growing number of contibutors from industry and academia. Researchers from different areas are using the data that is provided by people from all around the world.
You can even track planes' filed flight plans from their API: https://opensky-network.org/api/routes?callsign=EDW200E
