ShyView Data


#1

Folks,

As the view changes too quickly for me to count up am just curious as to details shown on SkyView.

The list shows total aircraft and with positions. Is it the ‘with positions’ that is shown on the map? I try and count up quick but always seem a few out. I assume also that all ADS-B are with positions and the others depend on synchronising with other stations.

There is a FAQ
https://flightaware.com/adsb/faq

PiAware is a radio receiver of airplane transponders. There are two main technologies , ADS-B and mode-S.

mode-S was developed before GPS and has limited information and no GPS position information.
ADS-B (extended mode-S) was developed after GPS and has position information.

The SkyView row color represents the type of transponder that a plane has.

Take a look at the Sept 2017 newsletter for what the color means
