who is online?
« on: June 02, 2009, 09:18:38 AM »
I've been to:

http://www.airnavsystems.com/RadarBox/network.php

and looked.

There is one in Sydney - me, one in Brissie and one in north SA.

So:  Why is it I am seeing coverage in Melbourne?

and the IP addresses can relate to  the ISP location not just your location

That's weird.  I zoomed in on "me" and saw the position was a bit off.

I modified it and now I am not on the map.

:(

Oh, yeah I appreciate it is not accurate.

That's why I asked.

Just wonder why the majority of locations are IP/ISP derived rather than actual (from  Geo location)....

My part of the country (SW England )appears totally devoid of active stations - presumably because my ISP(AOL) now have their servers somewhere in the Midlands.

If the location info is to be available - seems pointless unless the  positions are at least reasonably accurate.

A few of us laboured this same issue a while ago - it does seem a bit pointless, but we were shouted down by those who, for their own reasons, wished to remain anonymous and hide their location, even the nearest town.  But I thought that there was an alternative map devised whereby we could all register where we were - what happened to that?  I remember I was on that, whereas in the original map it showed me in Germany (my then ISP) when in fact I live in central southern France.  Hey ho...

Following on from DC's post, AirNav say that it's for privacy of individual very shy users. We've gone into this before at great length: this thread http://www.airnavsystems.com/forum/index.php?topic=1685.0 has 25 pages!

The live map that AirNav provides is the best we have for now, but we all hope for improvements in the future, preferably using our home locations, but with an opt-in button to satisfy the shy and nervous ones out there (for example, maybe it's illegal to use an RB in some places).

The live map DOES use the location entered by the RB owner in Preferences - Home Station Data.   But, and its a big but, only if Google Earth can handle all the lookup requests.  Many of the lookups will time-out, resulting in BLUE pins.

If you want to see the list of all user locations, just right click on the page, and View Source.  You'll see all the locations listed as geoStuff statements.

If it's illegal to share in your country, then you can un-tick the SHARE FLIGHT DATA option in Preferences, and you won't share your location.

Tarbat- that is interesting - if only because I can't find my location in the list(Torquay .UK N50.4745 W3.5121).

Dave, do you have sharing turned on?  Check the spelling, etc. - keep it simple, as Google has to work out your location from what you've entered as CITY and COUNTRY.

The coordinates listed are, I think, the location of your ISP.
