Why are ADS-B flights not showing in central Europe?


According to this page you have many ADS-B feeds coming in from central Europe: http://flightaware.com/adsb/coverage

Yet when you go to view the live data for flights over central Europe (like Germany), most of them are “Estimated”. (e.g. http://flightaware.com/live/airport/EDDH)

Where is the ADS-B data that you are collecting? Why is that not showing up on the website? What is the point of even collecting it when they are not being shown?


I see lots of non-estimated positions around Hamburg at the moment.
For example: flightaware.com/live/flight/EZY … K/tracklog

Do you have an example of a specific flight/aircraft that you think should be reporting ADS-B positions but isn’t making it to the FA map?

(Keep in mind that there are plenty of aircraft out there that are not transmitting 1090ES position information. Regional flights often fall into that category)
