SOFTWARE ENGINEERING PROJECT

textbook.town

This project aims to allow users to bid on the textbooks of other users, determining fair market values and maximizing the value received by sellers who often do not know how to price their books. Books are posted with photos which range from the best – worst pages in the book to allow users to better assess the quality of the book. Sellers are rated on a long term basis on the honesty of their quality assessments.

ADS-B Live Flight Tracking

As a hobby, I run two ADS-B station to track airborne flights; one near CYVR – Vancouver International Airport, another near CYXU – London International Airport.

A Raspberry Pi, a USB radio dongle, and a 1090 MHZ antenna – that’s all you need if you want to start your own station.

Maps…?

On Google Maps, I write reviews, post photos, and gather facts that make it easier, tastier, and more fun for other explorers to navigate the world.
But this world needs a FREE map. A map created by us, for us; so you and everybody can use it however you want.
