Hi Rudi,

And: Welcome to LQ!

Now: what *IS* shipplotter?
And I have also no idea what jack-program might be; I think
if you want people here to help you you'll need to provide
some more input.


Cheers,
Tink

linux-altenative for shipplotter

shipplotter: AIS is a system that ships use to communicate their positions to each other as part of the global maritime safety system. From December 2004, all ships over 300 tons must carry an AIS system which broadcasts information about the ship to any suitably equipped receiver. AIS uses very short bursts of high speed data on two VHF channels in the marine band. The two frequencies used are 161.975 (Marine ch 87) and 162.025 (ch 88) MHz. Ships broadcast their identity, position, course, speed and destination so that other ships can take account of their movements. Using a low cost radio scanner tuned to one or other of these channels and ShipPlotter software running on your PC, you will be able to see a radar-like real-time map (below) of all the large ships manoeuvring in your area together with information about their destination, estimated time of arrival and even the dimensions of each vessel. and JACK is a system for sending audio between applications as well as allowing them to all share an audio interface. Each application is run in exact sample sync with each other, and the entire system is designed to run at very low latencies.

Regards,
Rudi

That was exhaustive. :} ... I don't know of any alernatives, and some
10 minutes on goolge didn't provide anything, either. Doesn't seem
to be that popular a thing (even though I DID find that there are
transponders for ships using Linux). You may be lucky, and it might
run under Wine.

Ok, I know that jack; however, it has nothing to do with compiling?

There is a project to do this, but it is still quite raw:
