I’ve had my system connected for less than a month (19 days) and I see my ranking has drastically been shooting up. One thing I have not figured out though is what is the criteria for ranking. First, I see a column for Rank and a column for Rank Total. The two almost appear to be inverse to each other except early on, I would see ties on Rank Total but different numbers on Rank. How are these numbers derived? It would be nice to see rankings averaged by time, that way I could see approximately where I will settle in with later. I was also noticing in all the other columns drastically different numbers for people with ranking very close to each other. For example, the person ranked just above me has seen fewer ADS-B-ES aircraft and positions than I but their MLAT is four times higher than mine. Also, their “ADS-B Other Aircraft” is over double what mine is. Thinking of this “Other Aircraft”, I see that my number is quite a bit lower than others ranked near me.
As you can see, I’m mainly just puzzled about it and I’ve not seen anything to explain all the columns.
