Talking about

This website displays live (mostly) glider traffic. More information can be found on:

You can use this repo to report issues.


You can create custom links to ogn-live, for example:,5.83412&z=6&o=1&b=46.3069,42.5792,11.0471,0.5003&l=pr&w=0&p=2&t=

URL Parameters

The following URL parameters are currently supported:

Flag Description Value
c center coordinates latitude,longitude
w show warning window 0 - hidden
z zoom level 0 (entire world) to 21 (most detailed)
o show offline aircrafts 1 - show offline
m map type s:sattelite, h:hybrid, r:roadmap, t:relief
b bounds lat_max,lat_min,lon_max,lon_min
s auto set to map 1 - true
l show special layers v:wind, p:pressure, z:airspaces, a:airports, r:receivers
u use imperial units i - activated
p path length default: 5 min, p=2: 10 min, p=3 all points
n show side panel 0 - hidden
t load task file, (see Tasks) URL


Task File Format

Currently the code handles JSON and XCSoar TSK files. You can generate such a task file with many programs (e.g. The task file can be local or hosted somewhere (hosting with CORS). Remark: github and gists has CORS enabled.

To display only aircrafts you want, you can specify a "whitelist" of device IDs in the task file (currently only supported by JSON files). The devices need to be registered in the OGN database to be recognized.

Example task file (json-encoded)

{"tasks": [
    {"name": "15m", "color": "0000FF", "legs": [ [47.3,1.55],[48.2,2.3],[30000],[47.5,-1.3],[50000],[47.3,1.5] ] },
    {"name": "standard","color": "FFFF00","legs": [ [47.2,1.55],[46.5,2.3],[46.5,-0.2],[47,-0.2],[47.2,1.5] ] },
    {"name": "open","color": "FFFFFF","legs": [ [47.25,1.6],[48,3],[46,3],[47.22,1.6] ],"wlist": ["DD1111", "DD2222", "DD3333", "DD4444"]}

There is an external program cup2ogn.exe that will generate such a file either of a .CUC (SeeYou competition scoring file), or of a .CUP file (with or without a task, but with is better).


The backend code used in production is not yet public. However there is a alternative backend ogn-live-backend.
