I'm pleased to announce the launch of the redesigned ADS-B statistics pages on flightaware.com. This includes both the global ADS-B statistics and the "My ADS-B" stats page.

Here are some of the highlights of the updated ADS-B Statistics and My ADS-B pages.
  • Overall look and feel updated for better use of screen real estate and readability.
  • The pages are now “responsive” so they will render in a friendly format even on mobile phone devices.
  • My ADS-B
    • Individual chart sections now may be expanded/collapsed to the user’s preference.
    • PiAware/FlightFeeder health information is displayed in an easy to see at-a-glance format.
    • Daily charts/tables now show a full month of history.
    • User’s highest achieved 30-day rank is shown at the top of the page.
    • Various improvements made to page layout for ease of use.
    • PiAware/FlightFeeder settings control panel now accessible via gear icon as needed.
  • Global statistics page
    • Spark line charts now shown in more detail on mouse-over
    • User can toggle between seeing statistics for number of positions or aircraft seen.

You can view a video walk-through overview of the new pages on YouTube: https://youtu.be/kdWOx6LHcDo

Nice design. Some small faults in the french translation but very nice job :D

Quote:
Elevation de l'antenne au-dessus du niveau de la mer: 9 mètres

(Antenna elevation) : a little conversion error probably : the elevation is close to 200m, 9m is the pylon length :-)

Nice looking page but I'm reporting a possible bug report within it.

Configuration Settings:
Auto-update PiAware software - Constantly defaults to "Allow". You try to enable "Prevent" but on reloading the page, it is back to "Allow" again.

I do not want Automatic updating allowed. I wish to update my Pi as and when I wish.

Thanks :-)

I can't say that I am overly happy with the new design of the stat page nor with the skyview page. Having in mind the users these days on laptops and other mobile devices, I feel that the screen space has been taking over by unnecessary stuff. It is good to invent new ideas and express them but in these cases I certainly feel we went backwards a few steps. I am sorry...

Great update

Is it possible to freeze the log (on the config page) so it doesn't refresh every 15 secs

Would a snapshot with a "refresh" button be better than it automatically updating every 15 secs, which stops you scrolling back through it!

Cheers

Nice
I just need to inform you if ADS-B is online
In some ADS-B it appears last seen online in others no more.

Like it.
Highest 30 Day Ranking cannot be correct, at least in my case.

Could be that it is the highest for all sites of a single user?

For a time, I have been running two receivers side by side, so I could see how changes to the set up worked, practically doubling the number of a/c seen when added up.

Usually, I have been around 950, with 797 been the highest value with one receiver, in the stats page, however, it says:

Highest 30 Day Ranking: 536

Edit: Apart from that, its a pretty big change, wouldn't be suprised if quite a few people will need some time to get used to it.

Another nice thing to show would be a map with the positions that have been used over the last 24hrs

It would give some indication of the area that the feeder is serving - maybe not covered by other feeders

Eric.

there is some issue with the formating of the HOURLY RECEIVED REPORTS and when you move the mouse over the last entry of the Night. Aircraft numbers are truncated.

This is a display bug that is being worked on. The settings are being saved correctly on the backend.

I love the refresh but I spotted a bug. If you click the Configure gear on the page and click into the dropdown of commands to send the PiAware, you can then close the "Configure" window and the drop down just hangs out on the screen floating around as I scroll. Tested in Chrome. So to reproduce:
1. Click Gear. 2. Click on the Device Commands drop down. Dont select anything or click away from the dropdown. 3. Click the X to close the configure window. 4. Observe floaty menu!

Two child windows are labeled "Aircraft Reported." Perhaps these could be more descriptive and made unique.

In the second "Aircraft Reported" window. The date labels seem to be off by 1. Now 20:40 hours in EDT on 2 May, I am shown with 195 Aircraft. This should be the count for UTC 3 May. The same error is evident in the cursor-following pop-up in the other "Aircraft Reported" window.

EDIT: It appears that the date off-by-one error occurs in many windows. See newly added image.

Thanks for making the map smaller and to one side. I would have preferred a window that could be reduced to a single line like the others but it is better now.

Going against the grain here and totally do NOT like anything about the new format and layout.

I usually check in on a mobile device such as my phone and this used to be simple process with the old layout. Now theres no option to see a whole table, graph or chart without some kind of scrolling if that is even possible.

Please tell me how this:
Image
Depicts usefull information now?

Or this:
Image
I can't scroll down that stupid pop-up I have to open to see the log to actually see the information!!

I can't zoom out so now I can't see at least half the information I'm actually looking for.

Good job on "fixing" something that wasn't broken so now it is!

At least give the option to switch to the old view, the FIRST thing I looked for.

Very close to turning my feeder off and repurposing it for another project.

It appears your issue is very phone and/or browser specific. Using both Chrome and Firefox on my Moto X Pure, I see the entire windows that you show clipped.

I believe the new page is more mobile friendly than the old one. I find Chrome is the better of the two browsers I use for this page as far as navigating the page.

There is of course, that Map thing. (sorry).

Screenshots were taken of my stats. page veiwed with Chrome on an LG-G4.

It simply worked so much better the old way. I personally despise any web page that has forced formatting and the FlightAware stats. page has just joined that group. Ones where I can't scroll and zoom to information relevant to me or you have to open a ridiculous "pop-up" style window to veiw some information, like the stats. do now. Theres always some format/size issue on web pages done like this.

Thats why, by comparison, these discussion pages are sooo much easier to navigate and read. No stupid forced appearance/formatting/size. Scroll around and zoom in or out to your hearts content.

You moved ALL the cheese!

Will take some getting used to -- pretty, but I tend to go for data density over pretty colours.

thanks for all the hard work!

Strangely, my CONFIGURE panel does not contain the drop down for commands to send to the PiAware.

Here is a text representation of my CONFIGURE panel (because, for me, screenshots are just to much of a hassle to post on this forum):

Control Panel
Public Profile and Name
Site Name
Precision on Coverage Map Exact 1 km 10 km
Outage Emails
Nearest Airport
Mode S Multilateration (MLAT) MLAT enabled MLAT disabled
Configure Location Configure Height
Log
Note: pane refreshes automatically every 15 seconds.


Has this function been temporarily removed?

I agree with others that are somewhat less than pleased with the page redesign. Was there a problem with the old layout? I agree with keeping up with all of the latest trends in software, like "responsive design" which is really all about catering to mobile platforms. However, unless this design philosophy is carefully implemented to cover the experience on *all* platforms, what you end up with is something that is ultimately less user friendly and somewhat more confusing.

Having said all of that, I know that folks will get used to the new design, and the newer users will know no different. I am just not a big proponent of change for change sake. Unless something is clearly broken or non-functional, there is no need to "fix" it.

Just my two cents.

In addition, in the Configuration section, I see no place to "Send command to device". Has this been intentionally removed? And before anyone starts with the "it must be your browser" business, I have tried Firefox, Chrome, Edge, and an iPad (Safari) cleared caches, done reloads and all of that good stuff.
