SBS-1 + Mode-S-Radar Site Location Directory = online now =

Post by threemiles » November 24th, 2006, 11:17 pm

As proposed in another thread below the SBS-1 location directory is online now. You can find it at

http://sbs.jetvision.de
(for Europe, there are also shortcuts from there to USA and Australia)

To register go to "Add/edit user data". Please be sure to retain your filecode after registration, best make a print out.

Hint: enter West coordinates like -3.9 as W003.9 please

This is a trustware site. There are no protections against misuse and data spam as confirmation mails or so. Please handle the data pages with care and read the instructions before hitting a button - also please refrain from multiple registrations, wrong data can be edited or deleted.

An example view is here (only one dataset so far)

Have fun

Hi Andy,

Did try and add my location, but seems its hit or miss if your Lat/Long is taken correctly or not. First try put me 2 miles from correct location, second and third try using same Lat/Long put me in France!!! Not bad as the Lat/Long figures are for Cornwall, lol...!!

BTW - Also found this site, good for getting your Lat/Long http://www.satsig.net/maps/lat-long-finder.htm

Hi,

ok, the coordinates drop down is a bit misleading.
Please use decimal type coordinates exactly as they entered in Basestation (or basestation.ini).

Examples for longitude coordinates:

-10.0 = W010.00
-9.0 = W009.00
-5.555 = W005.55
-0.34 = W000.34
0.56 = E000.56

Longitude has always 3 digits for degrees as it can go from -180 to +180.

Cheers
Andy

Thanks for trying, you're on the map now.

Here's your code CJMCN3AF

The thing is to use the decimal type coordinates from Basestation exactly as they can be found in basestation.ini and to select W for West longitudes.

Cheers
Andy

Thanks, I did all that and still could not get close. You have the pin as close as I've had it, still about 1/2 mile out from the Lat/Long but close enough :) Ta

Yeah, the resolution is only 0.6 NM so we can't come closer as you have alot of significant numbers in the last two digits.

The problems with Internet Explorer were finally overcome and the site is online again.
For those who like to use Google Maps: don't use the <center> tag together with the google code

I entered my data but didn't see a marker. It also says there are 8 entries but I only see about four or five. IE6 used here.

FYI

Still a bit of trouble with special characters been entered. I troubleshoot in the live system, so please be patient.

EDIT: two datasets that were entered but not displayed were corrected manually. We got the 8 now. There is also a list available from teh bottom of the page to check whether a dataset is on the server, but displaced or only not displayed.

Cheers

Well it isn't very accurate but after a bit of shuffling around I got my pin in almost the right place.

I see bones swam to the shore too :lol:

I thought too much accuracy might not be wanted, but we can increase to more digits behind the decimal point if a majority votes for it.

Another digit would let the position error come down to +- 0.03 NM which is precise enough to identify a specific home in suburban areas.
