acars map embed

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

I have a running phpvms on my web and I have a another website, and I want to know if there is a way I can embed the live acars map? I tried figuring out the root part of the acars map. for an ex: www.website.com/map but cant find it on the files. Hope this is clear.

Embed http://yoursite.com/action.php/acars in an iframe or something. That will show the acars map and flight table without any skin.

trying that..all it shows is "Pilot Flight Number Departure Arrival Status Altitude Speed Distance/Time Remain" no map and location of me. kacars is on, and i checked with the actual live one.

You'll need the following somewhere in your <head></head> section:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://maps.google.com/maps/api/js?sensor=true"></script>

And possibly some others.

okay, i added that.

Here's where i wanted the live map to show. if you go to my link http://worldwideairlines.net/ctp/ and on the bottom you will see the blank map with the "Pilot Flight Number Departure Arrival Status Altitude Speed Distance/Time Remain" text.

The place where the phpvms software is here http://nick.worldwideairlines.net/index.php/acars

Maybe this will help get what I want?

Only need the Map and the status info.

Not sure what others i'd need, as you mentioned.

Remove the </head> directly after that javascript. I'm not sure exactly what else it is, have a look in core_htmlhead.tpl.

Personally speaking i would only use the iframe at a last result. Try the embed option first.

Thats not the full code above you are missing php code, that just looks like a view source optput.
