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.
