air traffic contrlol


Over the past couple of days Jag and I have set up a little special page that gathers aircraft data in a most beautiful way. Check out air traffic contrlol. For some explanations, read on.

This is data captured by a radar then decoded using a GPL program, ADS-B decoder written by Meinolf Braeutigam and edited by Jag. Jag captures the data as he lives near London Heathrow, then feeds it to my database and then our page displays it to you...

The colors are based on the ICAO of each aircraft, they use hexadecimal web color compatible code which we in turn use to color each flight.. which means that each aircraft has it's own unique color.
