Description

These data were obtained from the dump1090 software running on a raspberry pi at the Purdue Airport (KLAF) that was configured to log Mode S data in the accompanying .csv file. The file contains 1588 records collected on August 20, 2015, for approximately 7 hours. 

The antenna was located at approximately:

40°24′58.08″N
86°55′46.10″W

The following fields are contained in each row of the file:

  • tstamp: Date and time recorded to the nearest minute
  • t.hexid: ICAO 24 bit address
    m.ident: Aircraft tail number
  • alt: pressure altitude of aircraft
  • t.lat: Latitude of aircraft expressed in decimal degrees
  • t.long: Longitude of aircraft expressed in decimal degrees
  • sig1…sig8: The last 8 reported signal strengths
  • Signal.Avg: The average of sig1..sig8
  • ActDist: Computed distance in miles between ground received and aircraft using aircraft reported position
