Few days ago, I post an article how can we Track a Train Live on Google Map. After that I got 3-4 mails and they asking me, how can we track a flight live in Google map. After that I search on Google and I found a very beautiful website from where we can track Flight live.
Click here to visit the website.
Which plane you want to see live zoom on it for getting best result and see how it travel?
How it Works?
Flightradra24 shows live air traffic from around the world. The primary technology use to receive flight information is called automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B). The ADS-B technology itself is best explained by the top image.
- Aircraft gets its location from a GPS navigation source (satellite).
- ADS-B unit on aircraft transmits signal containing about the location (and much and more).
- ADS-B signal is picked up by a receiver connected to Flightradar24.
- Receiver feeds data to Flightradra24.
In addition to ADS-B data, they also get data from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in the US. This data is based on radar data and includes all commercial air traffic in US and Canadian air space (i.e. not just planes with ADS-B transponders).
