Planes Over My House Live!


This is a map of some of the planes flying near and over my house. The map is populated "live", and updated every few seconds. Data coming from ADS-B transmissions are picked up on 1090mhz by a DVB-T tuner attached to one of my Raspberry Pis and decoded in C++. The results are then analyzed and an HTML page is constructed which uses JSON to transfer the results to a map using the Google Map API. Click (tap for mobile devices) on a plane to get its approximate speed (knots), altitude (feet), and identification. If there are no planes in the map, either I'm doing maintenance, there are no planes in my area, or you should check CNN!
