Summary #

For this project, a live flight-tracking application is developed using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript along with the OpenLayers library. The aircraft information is sourced from the OpenSky Network REST API. Additional data sources are Stadia Maps (basemaps), and Statistik Austria (state borders WFS). The application parses and makes use of sourced data with JavaScript functions. The parsed outputs then serve as input for the OpenLayers map.

A detailed overview of the project including all code, resources, and documentation can be found on GitHub.
