Flight Data near SFO/OAK Aug to Sept 2019


I wanted to capture the planes flying near my house and make a visualization. The data and a write-up is available here: https://github.com/wasauce/piaware-flightdata

This looks interesting. I haven’t used Kepler before.

You haven’t included the script you used in the github though…

@caius - I’ve updated the github repo with the dumper file and the cloud function.

Run the dumper file on the raspberrypi. Then setup a Google cloud function and Google Storage for developers bucket – this is where you will store the data from your collection.

In the repo I also included the raw and cleaned data if you want to use that – and the link to Kepler.gl automatically loads clean data.

Cool - I’ll give it a try.
You might want to have a look at the heatmap scripts I made for ads-b visualisation. The thread is here.. I’ll have a look and see if I can use data collected there in kepler as well.
