Different colors depending on the sources
« on: January 07, 2019, 08:10:47 AM »
Bonjour, Hello,

I have 2 sources ( 1 raspberry + 1 very old eeepc )

Each one provide through dump1090-mutability, then fr24, raw data on port 30002.

Following this, i have an ubuntu server on which modesmixer2 is running with this command line :

Code: [Select]
/modesmixer2/modesmixer2 --web 8083  --inConnectId 192.168.1.154:30002:PI --inConnectId 192.168.1.102:30334:EEEPC --silhou
Like this i can see from which provider comes the information.

in this topic https://discussions.flightaware.com/t/how-to-get-vrs-like-coverage-map-on-rpi/31284?u=abcd567
It seems that it is possible too have differents colors on map depending sources ?

I tried without results

Any ideas ?


Thanks !

My thoughts on this are you are perhaps overlooking the fact that Flight Aware return MLat calculated aircraft to you if you supply them your data. MSM2 is smart enough to know the difference between MLat and regular ADSB traffic and plots them in different colours. I suspect as you have not stated you are feeding Flight Aware, you are just seeing your own data.

Thanks for yr prompt reply !
Maybe i haven't understand something.

I provide data to FR24, FlightAware
When i'm looking the map generating by dump1090 for my own data i can see on the list that there is some MLAT acf and adsb aircraft.
The MLAT acf are little bit shaded on the map.

Does it means MLAT acf positions are data coming from outside ?

Even this, how does the difference between MLAT and ADSB aircraft as describe in the above link ?

thanks.

MLAT positions require a server processing data from a number of ground stations, with the data being processed on a server to calculate an MLAT plot.

Unless you're running an MLAT server, I suspect you're getting the MLAT traffic from the FlightAware server.

This MLAT explanation may help:

After differetns test , i found a solution.

Code: [Select]
daemon_OPT="--web 8083 --inConnectId 192.168.1.154:30002:PI --inConnectId 192.168.1.102:30002:EEEPC --inConnectId 192.168.1.154:30106:MLAT --inConnectId 192.168.1.102:30106:MLAT --silhouettes /
Like this MLAT's aircraft are shown in green color on the map,
The ADS one , white with the specification name  of the source !

thanks again for yr help !
