Having all my SkyViews on one map


#1

Hey there.

I thought about setting up different PiAwares around the globe. Ok nothing new so far.

But is there a way to see all Skyviews in one screen? I mean normaly you have to be in the same network to see the screen.

Is there something like this possible or in the works? Some kind of forwarding to the “MotherPi”.

Thanks for any kind of information on this.

VRS will do this. VRS can pull the data from Piawares.
http://www.virtualradarserver.co.uk/

You could also configure each device to send their data to a single location, like an RPI running piaware. Just don’t feed this device to FA.
(beastspillter can send the data from the local device to a central RPI).

It depends if you want to pull or push the data and how your want to view it.

A safe way without back feeding anything is to modify the webinterface only. All your aircraft being displayed are in the /run/dump1090-fa/aircraft.json appearing as your_host:8080/data/aircraft.json on your local webserver.
I changed this link in cat /etc/lighttpd/conf-enabled/89-dump1090-fa.conf to /run/shm/ and made a Python script reading the original file, merging with other receivers and writing to the new destination.
