Real-time aeroplane tracking and the Open Data Hub

Using the Open Data Hub as real-time data backbone


Tracking aeroplanes in real time with Open Source Software is possible. Aircrafts must continuously send their current flight parameters to air traffic controllers on the ground and to other aircrafts. This generates a lot of data, especially when planes are being tracked by multiple sensors.
The Open Data Hub on the other hand offers a great backbone for data storing and processing, where the correct datasets have to be identified and filtered. After all transformation on the data is done, it will be exposed via API to be further used by a web application.
Bringing together sensor generated data, the Open Data Hub and custom web applications, is a showcase on how the Open Data Hub can be used as a service: OaaS.
