next generation contribution tool
winsend2 is more then a normal database contribution tool.
winsend2 is also an interface to the libhomeradar.org databases (add and modify). With this version of winsend2 you can check for the latest contacts (max. 30) for a given aircraft. You'll see a random photo from the selected aircraft and you can modify aircraft data (all modification will be checked by our admin crew)
The main reason for creating such a tool was our new libhomeradar personal section. With winsend2 it's easy to send your contacts to our server and if the personal option is enabled all contributed contacts are tagged for later use in our personal section.
aircraft icon with data editor and history
The handling of winsend2 was made very easy (we hope). After starting winsend2, the application will create a taskbar icon which can have 3 different layouts (see below).
Click with the right mouse button on this icon will bring up a small popup menu. Select the 'winsend2 control center' option to see the winsend2 window. The main window have 2 input options for 2 radar sources (one for each box). Enter your servername (or IP address) and the port and click connect. You can enable automatic connects (select the checkbox) and click 'Save settings'
Below the source configuration you'll find the database configuration options. The next section is a small libhomeradar API interfac. Here you can lookup aircraft data by registration or ICAO24 address.
The both listboxes in the left part of the window will show you a unique listing of all contacted aircrafts (try doubleclick) and a listing with current contacts (can contain duplicate entries - try doubleclick)
aircraft data editor for unknown aircrafts
The right part of the window will show you some statistics (global and one for each source).
The max distance from your system will only be calculated if you enter your location (GPS data) into the LAT/LON fields within 'About your system' group.
In the middle section you can enter your personal id (signup for a personal id now!) which will be loaded from winsend.ini during startup.
The daily report group can be used to create daily reports which can be send to friends, groups or to give your printer something to do. Location and country will be directly added to the reportheader. The GPS data will be needed to calculate aircraft distances to your system (not required)
The last listbox (lower right corner) will show you a list with ICAO24 adresses where no aircraft data could be found. You can doubleclick on a list item to start the editor. (all contributions will be checked by our admin crew)
3 possible winsend icons
winsend2 status icon
In your statusbar (lower right corner by default) you'll see the statusicon of winsend. There are 3 possible layouts (see the image on the right)
Click with the right mousebutton on the icon will bring up a small popup menu where you can add/modify sources, add/modify your personal id or to create a report for the current day.
