Real-time tracking map
Click on the side map to open the tracking page with real-time (no delay) aircraft positions.
The map highlights airspaces (with airports, runway length and radio frequency) and current weather conditions (clouds, rain and snow in different colors).
The map shows information of the aircraft tracked by the OGN network and also adds the positions coming from the Test circuit of the Radar2 apps (Test traffic provider). Positions, from ADS-B data, of commercial flights/airplanes flying at low altitude can also be displayed on the map (small yellow plane icons).
Although data from different sources are displayed together on the map, they do not interact with each other. In fact, data from the Test circuit are not displayed in apps connected to the real OGN or ADS-B provider.
The locations of the Radar2 apps that reference the Test provider and that have set a name for the private "room" are visible only if you know the room name to specify on the map page.
The map page also provides a search function for an aircraft if its OGN Callsign is known (eg. ICA123456, 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..
