[EDIT] I’m leaving this post as-is, other than this initial note: I realize I was looking at the wrong dump1090 instance of mine, and so this is not really an issue, other than the “uat2json” program does not create an aircraft.json that PiAware 3.6.3 likes very much.
I wasn’t sure if this should specifically be in this category, or under “General”, but either way…
I’ve been feeding data from my UAT receiver (dump978-rssi) into dump1090 via port 30001, and I hadn’t noticed until just recently that the speed, altitude, and vertical rates were missing on the map. (I recently set up ModeSMixer2 as well, and am feeding that, and noticed all that data is there, no problem).
This seems to be a bug/issue with the planeObject.js file, in fact.
After finding this thread - PiAware 3.6.2 and alkissack/Dump1090-OpenLayers3-html does not show speed nor altitude - I used the hint in there to modify planeObject,js to fall back to plain old “altitude”, “speed” or “vert_rate” if they are defined, and no other “better” version exists.
I also had to “fake” the Groundspeed and Vertical Rate, since those pull only from .gs and .baro_rate (respectively) in the script.js in order to display the detail frame, and I didn’t feel like editing that file, too.
Was there some reason this fallback was removed in the web UI code?
