Real-time tracking map
Click on the side map to open the tracking page with real-time (no delay) aircraft positions.
The map highlights the airports (with runway length and radio frequency) and current weather conditions (clouds, rain and snow in different colors).
The map shows information about the aircraft tracked by the OGN network and also adds the data coming directly from the Test circuit of the Radar2 apps (test provider). Even if the data from the two different sources are seen together on the map, they do not interact with each other, in fact the data of the test circuit are not displayed in the apps connected with the real OGN provider and the real OGN data are not displayed in the apps connected with the test provider.
The positions of the Radar2 apps that refer to the test provider, and that have not set a name for the test "room", are presented on the main page of the map, those that have set up a private "room" are visible only if you know the name of the room to specify in the map.
The map page also provides a search function for an aircraft if its OGN Callsign is known (eg. ICA012345, FLR123456, etc.)
Virtual cockpit 3D
In the previous map, by selecting an aircraft icon and pressing the blue round button (on the right side) it is possible to access the Virtual Cockpit function which presents the 3D animation of the pilot's view and the indications of the main on-board instruments * (in metric units).
To monitor an aircraft fleet, in real time, it is possible to open multiple browser windows in a wide screen.
This feature is experimental and is subject to further evolution.
The smoothness of the video animation, and the accuracy of the readings of the instruments, depends on the Internet connection speed of the browser and the quality of the signal received from the aircraft. In non-optimal conditions, a delay of a few seconds is added. The video is very smooth when the aircraft is using the Radar2 app or radio devices in areas well served by ground receiving stations. Try to see different aircrafts.
* Attitude indicator readings are inferred from flight parameters and assume all turns are coordinated..
