I just did a test. There were 10 WZZ flights on the network. 9 had routes. I then deleted all the WZZ routes in my database and restarted - only 1 had a route (this took a few minutes so it might not have been the same 10).
Restored my database from backup and restarted and now there are 13WZZ flights of which 10 have routes again.

Don't get me wrong - I am happy as well. I just wish more people would buy them in South Africa - we have a vast mountainous country so network coverage is not great.

chris11 was not getting at you.

Another good point is that airmav have banned the people with the hidden agendas so it will be even a better and bigger airnav forum next year.

I believe that sooner oir later we will have to go the same way we went for the aircraft database: have a group of volunteers checking and updating a central database. If any of our users are interested in this we can develop the technical side / database updater application.

AirNav Dev - I am 100% behind that. There are 100's of thousand routes out there and my view is that the only way to get them close to 100% (I believe that 100% is impossible) is to have a group of people updating in addition to other methods.

I am available

Hi All
Don't get me wrong - all I wanted to know was what timescale was involved. I am happy enough with my RB and enjoy many hours of use
My third party aircraft database currently has 400K+ records and when I go mobile all I have to do is copy the NavData.db3 from my PC to my laptop and away I go with all the latest information! Prior to obtaining my database I was happy to assist the Updating Team and did for some time. Now the very few unpopulated aircraft I get are easily updated via that third party. Before anyone starts nitpicking, it was a choice I made as it suited ME - It obviously wouldn't suit everybody.
Could AirNav include an up to date NavData.db3 file (with all the hard work of the Update team included) and have it available on their downloads site. As I have said I don't need it, but anyone getting a RB this Christmas will have a database 2 years out of date and a download site with the latest database would be useful to them. It would benefit AirNav as well as once someone had an updated database they wouldn't need to query the Airnav server in order to populate their logs (unless they are looking for photos as well).
As for the routes database - 2 to 3 months down the line seems OK. At least we now have some sort of target to aim for.

PS - anyone confirm the Mode-S code for Santa. I think it's H0H0H0


I agree cpmpletely with this post and especially the request to:

'include an up to date NavData.db3 file (with all the hard work of the Update team included) and have it available on their downloads site.'

Air Nav, why can you not provide this?

Dave

In case anyone finds it useful, I've put my navdata.db3 file on my ftp service

First, goto http://www.tarbat.gofreeserve.com, and then goto http://www.tarbat.gofreeserve.com/navdata.zip

No warranty, but if you want to use it, feel free to do so.  You might want to backup your own database first.

ROUTES
34,000+ routes populated with data posted on the Yahoo group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/PP-logs-and-routes/ and also updated over the last month or so using FDLite feeds from FRL, FlightAware, FlyteCom, FlightStats, Libhomeradar

AIRCRAFT
12,200+ aircraft populated with data from GAS
I also make a change to the data so that clicking on the left photo links to airframes.org, and the right photo links to airliners.net

ACTYPE, AIRLINES, AIRPORTS contain the standard data already in the database

IF ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER HAS A PROBLEM WITH ME POSTING THIS, JUST LET ME KNOW AND I'LL REMOVE IT.

SORRY: I'VE HAD TO REMOVE THE FILE

Unfortunately I received a PM telling me that I should seek the permission of the Yahoo group and GAS.  Sorry, but I have no idea who to contact to get permission.  Having been "warned" in the past over copyright infringments, I won't take the risk any more.  Sorry, I was only trying to help.

What the hell, life's too short.  It's back up on my ftp service.  As before, if anyone asserts copyright over this data, let me know and I'll remove it immediately.

Interesting that the yahoo group regards the information posted there as copyright. As far as I am concerned the information I post there is free for anyone to use and/or pass on.

In these days of free sharing of information of this type I am a bit amazed that people are so protective about open data. So - does this mean the information I add to the database update topic become copyright?
