Which Plane Woke Snowy the Cat?

YOW! Data 2019

Our new cat, Snowy, is waking early. She is startled by the noise of jets flying over our house.

This talk describes how common radio receivers can be configured to gather aircraft transponder signals. With an opensource data streaming framework (Apache Kafka) we can build a streaming data pipeline to rapidly process aircraft movements in real-time.

With data and spatial visualisations we can really determine which plane woke Snowy the cat.
