I have now managed to get Live Tracking working on the website!
I took to the skies at 4pm on Thursday 14th October 2010 with the aim to test out the live tracking. Itwas all a bit rushed and I did post it on Facebook that the testing was going to take place.
I had a text halfway through the flight to say that it was working successfully! Great news. There will soon be a page to show the live tracking map, this will show a Google Map and will update every 4 minutes or so with a dot to show exactly where we are, when we are exactly at that point! How cool!
I will also have a page to show all the old tracks, this will be a Google Map track and also a track over an Ordnace Survey Map as well.
The Facebook page can be found by clicking HERE and this is where I will be updating to say that we will be going flying and to watch the tracking page. The tracking page will be updated as well to say that it will be live within the next couple of hours or so. Hopefully I will be doing this on all of the flights in the future!
Below you can see what the Live Tracking actually looks like, very simple. This is our flight from the 14th and it’s the saved track after the flight. You are able to click on each yellow dot to see how high we were, what direction we were travelling in and how fast we were going too!
