Euroscope, a display interface

Hi all

For a very long time I've been trying to find a way to display real life traffic to a program called Euroscope.
The first issue I had to overcome was the ability to access the data, which this site luckily provides. Now, I need to find a way to feed that data to the radar display, in my case Euroscope.

For those of you not familiar with Euroscope (www.euroscope.hu/wp/), Euroscope is a free tool used by virtual Air traffic controller to control on an airtraffic simulation network called VATSIM. Members all over VATSIM have made radardisplays for Euroscope for a long time. Here are mine, from EBBU FIR.




The best thing about Euroscope must be that it is fully customizable.

I, an incompetent AVGEEK, see 3 possibilities to feed such data.

1) Connect to a server, either directly or via a proxy connection to any IP

2) Through a simulation/scenario server.
Originally, it's been made to allow users to spawn, offline, aircraft and "control" them,freely, as usual. Such scenario file would look something like this:

It includes information such as callsign, squawk, ATYPE, spawn location,route, start time,....

3) Playback feature
During any online session of the virtual ATCO, a log file is made. So, all saved sessions can be played back. The format for these log files is different than the simulator/scenario files from "2)".

Attached is a full playback file if you'd like to take a look.

Does anyone have experience with Euroscope and live traffic? Is there someone that would like to take a look at Euroscope's possibilities?

Kind regards

Matisse

Looks interesting! Hope you find someone familiar with Euroscope (I'm not). Maybe it's better if you try their forum? Our API is open and well-described, maybe someone there can find a way to use it.

Hi!

I'll look into that option, thanks!

Do you personally see any chance of it working? Maybe you've seen something similar before.

Many thanks

Matisse

In principle, there's nothing standing against it. Can't say how much effort it is, though. LiveTraffic (forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/49749-livetraffic/) uses ADS-B data to populate X-Plane, Lorby (www.avsim.com/forums/topic/533141-lorby-...raffic-105-released/) also does something in that direction for AVSIMs.
