Good day, all.

Is there any way to capture (in real time) tabular data (at least lat/lon/alt and aircraft type) of all reports being shown on the live view map? I'd like to be able to build up a few representative traffic patterns for low, average, and peak periods over relatively small regions.

I'm not looking to retrieve historical data, only grab (at regular intervals -- say every 30 seconds) a tabular presentation of the live view data.

My preference is to do this using the capabilities afforded to Enterprise subscribers (I just set up a PiAware receiver, with plans to set up a second location over the next few days)

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: I'm referring to the FlightAware live view map, not the data from my own ADS-B receiver. I'd like to specify a small region of the live view map and get a tabular data depiction of the aircraft position (and type) data from that view.

The data is available directly from your feeder in several different formats on several ports.

I'll let people who know more than I do describe what those options are.

I'm not referring to my ADS-B receiver (I know how to get the tabular data from that). I am referring to the FlightAware live view map... The data that comes from them, not my receiver.


Thanks!

periodically and automatically I don't know how we can do that, but if you go to inspect element on chrome (I use only chrome) you can view and save that data.

FlightXML does this but this is not a part of the enterprise account.

FlightXML allows you to specify boundary boxes and will return all the planes in that area.

Your receiver has two main outputs:
1) The streaming data feeds (port 30001 to 30005). This data is streamed from the decoder to the outputs ports in real time.
2) The aircraft.json file that is used by the "live map" on your receiver. This file is updated every second with the total view of all aircraft your receiver knows about.

If your receivers has good enough coverage area it might be good enough for what you want to do.

OK, thanks for the info... Just to be sure I understand (because I'm pretty new to this):

- I can sign up to be able to submit queries to FlightXML

- I can create FlightXML queries that would return data on all the aircraft in a specified bounding box.

- Execute those queries at regular intervals (say 30 seconds) during some period (e.g., 2 hours at low, average, and peak traffic times) over a day or two in order to generate representative air traffic at those times and locations.

- Billing is based on the number and class of queries executed, vs. a monthly subscription. For example:

- SearchBirdseyeInFlight in a bounding box would be 1 Class 1 query (per 15 aircraft returned)

- The returned InFlightAircraftStruct would have (for each aircraft in the search result) altitude, lat, lon, and many other parameters
- Is the structure item "type" the aircraft type? (e.g, B747)

- If I don't have the aircraft type for a returned aircraft, I could execute another query based on the ident or faFlightID to get that (a Class 3 query)?

Again, many thanks for the helpful information.
