Quadcopter App with Flight Restrictions (JQA)

What?
This is an article serving as documentation for my first ever app on the Android Operating System. For tablets and phones. The app in a nutshell displays flight restrictions in a given area

Description
As a quadcopter flier myself, I wanted an app to show me a map of the area I was going to film or fly. I wanted it to display the flight restrictions of the area and any other hazards I might need to take into account. Other apps I found only covered the USA, this one I wrote covers the world and can be added to really easily.

It works by reading the weather data from api.openweathermap.org and the flight restriction details from api.joellipman.com (my own personal website). This allows me to continually add data to the api of my own website without needing to redistribute or update this app.

Welcome to my website!

Hi Everybody!

My name is Joe.  I like to think of myself as a web-developer but then I like to get involved with anything related to computers.  I've been writing websites and scripts commercially since 1997 and I'm using this website to store notes as I go along.

I specialise in taking over incomplete and/or bespoke systems which have little or no documentation. I like workarounds and solutions and persist in the knowledge that anything is possible, I only have to believe. I tend to write about issues that the rest of the crowd so easily give up on.

I am usually available for consultation and short term projects. If you think I can help you and your website then feel free to get in touch using my contact form.

Thanks for visiting!  I hope this website is, as always, of some use to you!
