More precise data than track log?


#1

Howdy all,

I’ve been looking at track logs for some of my flights and using the data to plot these flights on Google Maps. But, one minute time and one minute lat/long resolution isn’t all that great. For example, my approaches don’t look great at all, especially the holds, procedure turns, etc. I know flight aware has more precise data in both time and position because I can see it on generated maps. Is there any way to obtain this data?

Thanks all!

We only get minute-resolution data from the FAA (in both time and space), so that’s all we can offer. Our maps are using the same data as the tracklog; the mapping software does a bit of smoothing/interpolation to make it look nicer.

Gotcha, thanks much!
