Develop GUI using GTK+ ,Glade for uav Ground station
 
I intend to develop a GUI using gtk+ and glade .
It should have the following capabilities:
.moving map display like google earth with waypoints and current uav position
.receive and send data serially
more standard gui features
.display a virtual cockpit like in flight simulators.

However i am very new to this all.
What shall be my approach?
I will be using c as a language.
Any help?
Anyone interested in this or other projects do contact me.

Sounds like a good project:cool:
Interesting and I have some time available.

Wondering is Java could be a better approach or even wxWindows?
:cool:

Well,
Java is a very good option.
i had made this GUI in Java last year,using rxtx libraries for serial support.
But somehow my code was limited to win xp and below.
it didnt work in vista and in linux found it very difficult to install libraries and do stuff.
moreover it consumed about 220MB RAM.
So,
This time i seek a speedier,more general,cross platform solution.I have no idea about wxWindows
I have also just started with GTK+ after rejecting QT.
Happy to hear that someone is interested in the project and has time.Hope to hear more from you.
