    New to FR24, new to RPI

    Hi:

    I have a bit of a beginner's question.

    I've set up a raspberry pi and a DVB-T stick, and it is feeding to FR24 successfully. However, I'd like to collect the raw locations it is reporting (perhaps as a CSV file or similar) so I can make a visualisation of what is going on overhead. Could someone tell me what I should be doing?

    Many thanks.

    virtualradarserver will also add everything you see to a database which you can query for your own applications, this is with the database writer plugin.

    Go to h ttp://IP-ADDRESS:8754
    Click settings
    In the field "Process Arguments" type "--net --net-http-port 8080"
    Click save
    Restart the feeder (or just restart your Raspberry Pi)
    Now go to h ttp://IP-ADDRESS:8080 and enjoy a map of aircraft inside your reception range

    Replace IP-ADDRESS in the above links with the IP address of your Raspberry Pi

    Sorry, as a newbie I'm apparently not allowed to post links on this forum...
    I had to work around this by adding a space in the http bit of the links,
    I'm sure you understand what I was trying to say :-)

    Hi:

    I have VRS working, and I can see what is overhead on a Google Map, but I want to save the locations in a database or CSV (every position report). I have tried netcast and wget, but both seem to suddenly and inexplicably stop after a while. VRS is creating a database, but that is for the first and last positions of planes, from what I can see - not every single position. What am I doing wrong?

    That's a great question and you're not doing anything wrong. There is talk of updating the VRS database writer plugin to record every data point or something more than first and last, but last I've heard it hasn't happened yet. VRS is open source code though so hopefully someone in the VRS community will come up with something soon. I think FR24 already figured that out but it's probably not open source code .

    I do have the same question though. It shouldn't be that hard to log all the data returned from VRS (or dump1090) on a remote computer with a LAN connection to the Rpi with the ADS-B receiver but I don't know how to do it either.
