Raspberry Pi Flight Tracking

The newest addition to my Raspberry Pi Projects, ADS-B Flight Tracking. 

With open-source software, overhead and or nearby aircraft can be tracked through the ADS-B signals the planes transmit. Currently the flight data is sent to 7 different flight Tracking websites. (Contributor ID provided when possible.)
