Tools for RadarBox
« on: February 23, 2008, 09:09:27 PM »
Hello,

It has been one moment since I try to exploit the data of the RadarBox,
either to follow in particular a plane, or to see the track of this plane.

Regrettably, for me, i must work to feed my family (and pay me toys as the RB) and thus
during the day, I cannot watch the RadarBox.

My idea is to put the RadarBox in recording mode and to exploit after
the file rbl.

I thus developed a program RBTools, allowing to exploit the file rbl
nnd to transform them to RE-EXPLOIT it withe the RadarBox or Google EARTH.



There are three functions on this program:

The first one, the cleaning allows to get back the file rbl and to clean it, it is has to delete the lines which have not data with longitude and latitude.(because no interest to observe them).

The seconds functions (FILTER) allows to filter the planes of this cleaned file, he allows to show the list of the planes of this recording
and to export them in a new file which will contain ONLY the concerned plane.



In more, for the fun, you can recorded it, in speed mode (FAST), the plane is going to move approximately 10 times as fast in the screen...

Some example:

http://www.lesaunier.com/rbt/FI_AF559FU_X10.rbl     
http://www.lesaunier.com/rbt/FI_AF684ZA_X10.rbl   
(South of France)

The principe is to reduce the time data on the record  .brl file, so the time is not
linear but it's funny !!!!

The third function (GPX CONVECTOR) allows to export a plane selected in a file size .gpx, which can be open with Google Earth, what allows to have long tracks or the sight of the plane on the real ground.

Long Trace


Short trace


On the airport


the file gpx:
http://www.lesaunier.com/rbt/GPX_AF556FN.gpx   (download it)

For all the file, the program automaticaly create new name with header (FL for filter, GPX for GPX and extension X0 for the fast mode).

i filter or gpx function, the number in the table with the name of flight is the number of record of this plane on the file, more is important more you have detail and long trace.

it's run well in flight identification mode,not so good in only mode-s detection. (problem with multiple identification)

You can download this program at the following address:

http://www.lesaunier.com/rbt/RBTools11.EXE
it's an auto extractible program.

i have more idea (as compressor function), but i'm waiting for the V1.4, if i want to make bridge with the SQL database.

I prepare a documentation (make long time), it's a freeware and I am not a "pro" of the programming,  has, there is certainely some bugs ... i'm waiting for your comment


(sorry for my bad english).
Good play
Patrick / F6GSG

Patrick,

Thanks for posting the RBTools program, I look forward to using this.  You link does not download as the exe part needs to be in capitals like:

http://www.lesaunier.com/rbt/RBTools.EXE

I have downloaded the file and will take a look.

Thanks

i allocator,

thanks for the information, and i know why we have this messsage:

The cycle is this:

first cleaning (not compulsory but advised, the treatment is faster)
second time FILTER OR GPX, but if you try filter
and go after to GPX, the left table is not empty, but it's wrong
you MUST select a rbl file, make GO and after choose a flight
to convert to gpx file.

it's a bug, i must clean the left table at the windows opening
(it's the same table and the memory is'not empty).

good luck !!!
Patrick

Thanks Patrick, got it now!

Well done, nice utility and the first one to use the recorded files I think :-)

Patrick, the new version is working well thanks.

An interesting track here from yesterday.  RYR341 into Liverpool EGGP form the south (the line on the left).  Made a single approach to Liverpool, then diverted to the SE (the line on the right).



Full size picture here - http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2260/2288265162_556624690f_o.jpg

Here you can see some of the approach - I lost the aircraft as it turned finals for Liverpool and RBTools joined the 2 lines.  I've inserted red dots where the aircraft would have flown but I didn't see - and I've made the RBTools extra line into a dashed line. Liverpool airport is marked by the red arrow.

Patrick, you need to develop a way of showing the altitude on Google Earth :-)

Hi friends ....
There is many reasons because it's not possible to download the RBT.
At first, with the new version of RB, i must change some functions
and adapt the recorder (because the recording function is a little different)
and in a same time i moved to Vista !!!! (pb with loalisation of data
recording)

But the most important reason is that i have changed of internet provider
since 2 weeks and i have not finish to translate all the data !!!!

So, i'm not in France actually (i'm at Miami - for my job of course) and in my return I am going to finish the work ... (in two weeks).

So thank you for the interest to this (small) product and sorry for
the inconveniences.

Patrick
