Hi James, I don't know if this if a problem at my end - photos are coming through as they should, but on Live Radar, I'm just getting the same RB display timed at 1208UTC today, nothing showing on it,and after each update, the screen is just the same, now 1436.

Hi Jon, thanks. I was doing some work to set up my RB antenna elsewhere. Ideally I need to add a service status window or simply a message/icon to indicate if the RB is offline for maintenance. Thanks for sparking that idea! James

Hi James, the display is off your RB then?   Many thanks for sharing it with us, and the superb pics.    Being right down in sw Cornwall, it is great being able to view LHR.

Yes, got my ANRB on a dedicated pc running H24 uploading every minute. Now it's all set up and running with the website I'm aiming for zero outages.

All the great comments like your own really makes all the hard work on the site so worthwhile. Thanks for the feedback. James

James,

The live Heathrow screen shot display is looking good - well done with this and the webcam :-)

The only problem I see with the screen shot is that it does look a little cluttered.  Do you really need the range rings and the "path vectors"?  With all the traffic that you will get when it is busy, I think that it might be a case of less is better?

I'm sure that you will experiment and come up with the best options :-)

Not a criticism, just an observation.

Hi Allocator

Thanks for the feedback and ideas. I will have a play with the options soon. I was planning to add some outlines soon so unchecking some options to declutter is the way forward.

Thanks

Hi James

Great webcam - absolutely superb!

One question - I've managed to establish that the cam is looking across Caroline Place, Nobel Drive & the A4 towards the BA 747 hangars but does this mean that the webcam is mounted on a pole in the middle of a field or is it as far back as Cranford Lane?!  Or has something been built since the Google Earth / Maps images were produced?

Totally intrigued - would also love to know whether the movement sensor is something unusual or special.

Once again, many thanks & long may the cam reign!

Best regards

Paul Burchell

Hi Paul

Good guesses! However, I'm keeping my location under my hat for obvious personal security reasons :-)

I'm planning on putting together a web page with details on how the camera works. Will post to this forum when I have news on this.

Thanks for the superb feedback. Much appreciated.

All the best

Hi James,
Again, as previous, absolutely superb site, is there any chance of it ever tying in with the Heathrow Arrivals page............................?   We're never saitisfied, are we!
Title: Re: New - AirNav RadarBox - Heathrow Webcam
Post by: HeathrowCam - Support on April 01, 2009, 08:32:27 pm
Hi Jon, thanks again! Plenty of great new ideas for site and yes I'd really like to add arrivals info page so I'm looking into how to pull out the data from my RB.

One really cool idea I have is to hook up an IP camera with PTZ ability (pan/tilt/zoom) and there's new progressive scan CCD ones available but for around the 1K mark. If enough people would be interested I could probably afford one assuming people would pay a subscription for the interactive use. I'll post a survey on it soon. How do you like that idea??

All the best James

James,

Having just bought a RadarBox and joined the forum, I can't believe how good this cam is!
I often wondered whether such a cam existed and I've finally found it. I know how I'll be spending my spare time now (to say nothing of switching it on at work too!)

Thanks very much

Hi Kev

Thanks for the really good words about the site.

I have the site on in the background at work too!

What do you think about having a live stream or even a controllable IP camera?

James


Title: Re: New - AirNav RadarBox - Heathrow Webcam
Post by: kevmul on April 23, 2009, 05:31:52 pm
James

Live stream would be a real bonus.

Not sure how a controllable IP camera would work - but I'd be interested in finding out more.

How feasible would it be to link the shots to actual details of the flight - route, a/c registration etc. Probably a big task and maybe not even possible at the moment, but I keep the heathrow arrivals web page open and can make a pretty good guess where the a/c has come from (not too easy with BA though lol)

Thanks again

Kevin

I would really like to have an arrivals feature on the site with a/c details. I'm planning look into the RB reporting features soon. Matching up to photo could prove a bit tricky though. Better to just have a list I think and use the zoom feature to pick out the registration.

Are you referring to the civilaircraftregisters site?

James I'm knew here, but can somebody explain, why are some pictures more close up than the rest, does the camera keep on zooming in and out?

at which runaway is the camre located, I assume that the landings are when the airport is on westerly operation, are you filming the runaway next to Hatton Cross station (Northern I think), or the opposit side
Title: Re: New - AirNav RadarBox - Heathrow Webcam
Post by: HeathrowCam - Support on May 22, 2009, 04:50:21 am
hi elal

The camera is looking south and faces the east end of the northern runway so gets close up shots of 27R landings.

The camera also captures 27L southern runway landings which are the distant shots.

The current camera does not zoom.

This week landings are generally on 27L in the morning and 27R from 15:00 but there have been quite a few 27R landings in the morning before the hour of both runways being used which is quite unusual.

Hi James,
Only just seen your post above, I'd certainly be willing to make a contribution or reasonable subscription (I think I'd rather do that than pay the network subscription - sorry AN!).

The cam is off, due to different runway in use, does that mean that they are using the crosswind runway?

Post by: Mo on May 24, 2009, 03:51:24 pm

That means they are using 09R/L .. Therefore it's the other side and no landing or takeoff could be captured.

Different rate of climb?

On approach, all aircraft are going to be following more or less the same nominal glidepath aiming at the runway threshold.  On departure, they will be getting airborne at a slightly different points and climbing at a different rates.  So, it will be much easier to point the webcam to see the aircraft on approach, but more difficult for climbout?

That's my guess anyway - standing by to be corrected :-)

Well put however, most aircrafts get airborne by half the runway or almost the end if they are extra heavy .. No point I think because you won't see anything just a plane with whose gear is up and climbing

I'm sure that anything is possible - Heathrow Cam Support will have to answer this one for you.  Just Remember that the guy running the webcam is doing this because he wants to - it's not an AirNav product - I'm sure that he would be more than willing to set up a much "smarter" camera if us RB users were prepared to pay him for the service :-)

Yes - that's spot on Allocator. I've been watching the take offs on 9R today and the a/c are several hundred feet higher than the point the camera is fixed and as they are always on 9R they are also too distant. The a/c are at many various different points in the sky and so it's very difficult to photograph them let alone trigger the camera. I have tried to work out the section of the sky that most a/c pass through but then I've had focusing problems. The only solution appears to be the PTZ IP camera which can be controlled to follow a/c. Some PTZ IP cameras have tracking but not sure how reliable this would be. These cameras aren't cheap though. Perhaps when the Cranford Agreement is completely removed and take offs begin on 09L (will they ever, does anyone know?) then I would have a shot at capturing those.

Hi James, I'm really enjoying your cam

I have 2 short questions

1)what is the reason that the camera is switched off daily at 20:36, It would be great if it was left on untill a bit later (I like watching ELAL come in, and it comes in daily between 20:40 - 20:50)

2)Why is it at times that it's stated on the screen "camera off" and the cam is actually on?
for example daily between 20:30 - 20:36, or last week when the camera caught a glorious shot of a Sri Lankan A340 taking off, and the camera was off

Once again thanks a million for your great work and keep it up

Hi elal

1) I'm using AI Robot to automate the system and I had it set at that time to switch off the triggering simply so we don't get too dark pictures. With sunset much later now I will increase this time from tonight to 9pm.

2) Thanks for spotting this. I had AI Robot set to do camera off too early. I've corrected it now. The Sri Lankan was a fluke last week. I normally power down the equipment but left it on just in case the wind was to change. I've experimented with capturing take off on 9L but it would need another camera. I already put more details about this in this thread. I think I will look into this when take off's start on 9L if they ever do as they will be much closer.

Thanks for using the site.

Hi all I am new here just found the Heathrow cam so at last we have one for Heathrow the busiest Int airport and home of the plane spotter I can't understand why its taken so long and also its about time we had live atc from Heathrow too, on the Internet you can get most large Airports in the US so why not here, the radar is a great feature when its running as it also show the a/c reg.
Well done to all involved would love to see streaming cam too, but I know this is asking a bit much :)

Hi Simon

Welcome to the site. Glad you like it.

You can also pick out the a/c reg for the a/c landing on 27R by using the "zoom on" link then use the up and down arrows to zoom in and out.

I had couple of home network blips today affecting the RadarBox screenshot but this should be back to normal now. I have it running 24/7.

I would really like to add a stream cam. I'm looking into it.

All the best
James

Not like the old days with the 727s dc9s dc10s, tristars etc etc, OK OK I know I'm old.

I also can't recognise between the aircrafts types, for example between the 737 and A319/20/21 series, or between the 757 and 767 or A330 (especially wth BA who for some reason don't write the model type on the aircraft).
The 747 and A340 and of course the A380 are easy to recognise, the 777 can also be easily recognised by it's set of 3 rear wheels.
Does anybody have any other ways of recognising any other aircraft?

The give away with the 737 is the kink in the fin, the A320's is completely straight. Also the 737 has a pointier nose. The 757 is quite distinct to my view as it has a very rakish appearance, distinguishable from the A321 by its much larger fin.

Ian - cool cam. The frame rate is really good. Is it about 25 frames a second?

What camera are you using? I'm currently looking at Megapixel IP Cameras and trying to decide whether I should spend a bit more for a progressive scan ccd as I had bad experience with a Canon VB-C50's interlacing messing up the edges of the a/c.

Yes. Plan is to add a dedicated page that shows the stream. I also want to build in a feature to show video clips via thumbnails so you can replay ones you've missed during the day.

How can the photos be taken with such precision and clarity?

It seems impossible that the camera can take pictures of each passing plane directly in the middle of each shot!

Hi fabflight57

The video stream is a fixed IP camera and has a manual zoom lens.

The still photos are taken by a Canon 350d camera.

All the profits from subscriptions are pushed back into the project so the aim is to get enough money to pay for a Pan Tilt and Zoom IP camera in future that subscribers can conttrol.
