From the Forums: GPS satellite data display for PiTFT #space #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

William Phelps shared a screencapture from his project-in-progress – a GPS satellite data display for PiTFT he has been sharing on the Adafruit Forums:

I’ve written a python program to display GPS satellite data, with some stars and the brighter planets, specifically for the PiTFT display. The GPS parsing is done in a separate thread. The display is unique – it plots circles for each GPS satellite that is overhead, with the size of the circle proportional to the S/N ratio. It even has 10 second position averaging.

  1. I did something similar using HTML5 (since I usually have a media player, tablet, or smartphone). And I earlier did Star and planet plots, but need to add that back (it was for the Nokia).

    But it is cool.
