dump1090 3D Viewer


Tried this out… pretty slick, nice work shogooda!


I’m no programmer so shoot this down if it isn’t doable.

Seem like the problem is when there are lots of aircraft around there is to much to do with constantly updating data and not enough time to do it.

Would it be possible to copy the aircraft.json data to another file/data work through it, then once its done get fresh data.

this would limit the update rate based on number of aircraft but it would get through the data without getting bogged down.



What is the latest version of myradar24? I’ve been using 0.6 from “wget http://dz.plala.jp/wiki_data/myradar24v0.6.zip” but when I look at your public webpage at http://dz.plala.jp/myradar24/ it looks like you’ve made updates such as colored lines for the plane tracks. I’d like to update my version but cannot find the correct link for a new .zip file.



This is working fine on my pi B+ with the piaware and dump1090-fa

However it would be cool to plot this in the google earth software.
I don’t know if this is possible, seems to me just to port the data to the google program, but I have no idea how to do that :smiley:

It looks very cool.

There is however one mistake in the config file, the latitude and longitude are switched around :wink:
So fill in latitude by longitude and longitude by latitude

If someone want’s to trie this, you don’t have to install anything. It’s just placing a folder in the
directory and change the coordinates in the config file located in
and it just works with the standard piaware installation.

I can share mine if some want’s to try this

I was wondering the same :slight_smile:


When will the new version come out?


Because I am not good at English, it is Google translation.

I am surprised that some people are trying.

Although I was creating a new version in the middle, I abandoned it because I could not move comfortably with browsers other than Google Chrome.


Although expectation is thin, I will challenge once again.
Please wait patiently for a holiday work.

If you have the features you want, please write a comment.


The version that runs on your server would be enough.


待つことはできません。 :slight_smile:
We can not wait. :slight_smile:


New version dump1090-fa 3.6.2 no function 3d.


maybe because /usr/share/dump1090-fa/html was re-written ? in this case you must add the /3d folder with all files there.

then use this command your IP/dump1090-fa/3d
also this was for - jessie - in my strecth rpi does not work


I did a complete reinstall and nothing. I see the map, but I can not see the airport or the aircraft.


I just got it working with 3.6.2

in usr/share/dump1090-fa/html/3d/js/script.js

I changed all : this.altitude to this.nav_altitude


You probably want alt_baro not nav_altitude


Thanks obj, i will give it a try,

Much better :smile:

in usr/share/dump1090-fa/html/3d/js/script.js

I changed all : this.altitude to alt_baro


Tweaking some colours


are you on stretch and FA SD image ?
can’t make mine work. followed instructions from obj post above.


grab the java-code from http://dz.plala.jp/myradar24/
and after some tinkering


hi bramjacobse

great job.
could you share the code, but most important the steps for stretch (SD image or not) installation ? is nginx required ?


ED1: a. works ok in jessie and dump1090-mutability. - no nginx needed
b. in FA SD image - stretch I only get the map
followed obj instr. above and this is what I get.
