Top-Down View


Recommended Posts

Just want to say how much I'm enjoying getting to learn vERAM. Such an awesome client.

 

Now I'd like to ask a question that no one else can seem to answer. I've made various bookmarks to accommodate easy viewing of major aerodrome ground views and TRACON views. When I use the top-down feature to view the ground display at a major airport with ground radar, should I not see a simplistic datablock of aircraft with at least the callsign on the ground without having to radar identify them? As of right now, nothing changes between the TDM and default setting. All I get is limited datablocks for aircraft on the ground. (Squawk and altitude) That makes it very annoying trying to figure out who's who.

 

Is it an issue with the facility file, or a setting within vERAM that I'm forgetting/missing? Thanks.

It was indeed an issue with your radar sites. I'm not sure where you got your radar site data from but I replaced them with the real world ERAM radar sites.

 

Don't ask me. I only use what I'm given.

 

You da man Justin. Cheers.

If a radar is picking up ground traffic there's better than average odds its elevation is set too low. Add 20-30 feet to your terminal radar elevations to account for the housing towers.

Right now I'm encountering the same issue with ZOA's file at RNO. Currently, all planes show up as if they are airborne. Unless I delete a majority of my radar sites, planes continue to show up airborne. I have tried placing a dummy radar site at the field (with proper elevation, and even +50 feet) with no luck.

 

Any ideas?

Josh, ensure that if you add a dummy site that you remove the other sites as they might be the ones giving you the radar returns. Besides that, ensure that you have a positive number for the radar slope.
