Possible mashup ideas...

Postby luckyjunknowitz » Thu Apr 05, 2007 8:46 pm

Hey all,

Posted this originally in the feedback section, but wondered if anyone here has some thoughts about potential mashups for this site with others.

For example, take some of the data from Celestrak, Heavens-Above, or something similar related to Satellite overflights and display them on the "Sky-Map" just like you could overlay the ground track of a satellite on a Google-Maps site...

The API looks great so far, but I'd love to see some more possibilities for drawing polygons, polylines, or user-defined points on a layer on top of the sky-map.

Just think about how easy it would be for someone to pick out the location for an Iridium flare with the real sky background as served up by this site !!!

Just something to think about. I'd love to hear feedback from the crowd, and the authors of the site of course...

Keep up the amazing work !!!

Cheers,

-Lucky

I replied in feedback section.
Just another thought about some simple solution - generate transparent images with satellites tracking and show them over sky-map images...
But best solution I still think would be JavaScript drawing tracks over sky-map images.
You mentioned you can help with tracking calculations, your experience would definitely help us.

Thanks

Adding motion and time

Love the site

Suggestion SGC, a 4 Dimensional Galactic Coordinate System. 4d mapping and determining distances and projecting to three or four dimensions if possible.

http://webpages.charter.net/visproduction/sgc/sgc.htm

I found it here http://www.projectrho.com/smap12.html#winchPoster

It would be great to see a 3d evolution, http://www.projectrho.com/smap07.html#new90 has some great resources on the subject of stellar cartography.

One other site http://galaxymap.org/ has a great Plan veiw of the Galaxy and excellent links to catalogs Gum & Sharpless etc. It would be good seeing interoperability between projects.

Oh yeah, and what a 3d map might look like
http://www.exosolar.net/ & http://www.solstation.com/

Again, love the site.
