Default Spot tracker data pull.

I have developed a Spot data pull utility which will allow me to
automatically 'pull' data from multiple spot tracker sites
automatically and put them all on one KMl file to overlay on google.
I'm looking for a couple of UK based spot equipped pilots to run some
tests with.

Hmm, here in the U.S. we have been using a similar system for a while
now, based on software created by Mark Hawkins. Do a search on this
forum for "SPOT" and you'll see the links. I'm sure Mark would be
interested in talking to you about your application, and I'm also
pretty sure he would be interested in working with you to expand SPOT
tracking coverage. AFAIK, there is no geographic limitation
associated with his Google Earth application.

Regards,

It would be interesting if someone did this for the US (or the world),
so you could look and see all the flights that day.

As Frank said, what I've done doesn't have any geographic limits.
When I asked for SPOT shared pages I wasn't just asking for ones in
the US. That's all I got but I really was hoping for some shared page
URL's from people in Europe as well. I just didn't get any. I'm am
updating the original page that I had that showed all SPOT that's I've
gotten. I'll have that up in a few days and will post the URL's here
for all to see.

Also, as Frank said, whoever posted the original post, feel free to
email me directly if you want to confer on the things we've learned so
far.

Later!
