Implement Aircraft radar map



  • I already set up a ADS-B system above the building and want to implement a Qt UI to make a Radar view and show all above-horizon aircrafts around me. Flightradar24 is a good example.
    Each aircraft is clickable to show details.
    My simple idea is to create a QPushButton for each, then simply put icon and accept CLICK signal.
    Does anybody have better idea? Many thanks!!
    Using PaintEvent us easier for plotting, but I will have to collect the Mouse Event and find out which aircraft is being clicked.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    I would rather go after the Graphics View Framework.

    You can make each plane an item and it will be way easier to manage them.
