AIS Dispatcher open source?
« on: 12 June, 2013, 06:51:39 pm »
Hi all,

I have come across the AIS Dispatcher utility, and while it has many great features, it seems to lack support for Mac OS X, as well as some compatibility issues with windows 7/8. Lastly, google has been making some advances in regard to its integrated features support, and I do not see it being utilized in the current(?) version of AISDispatcher. As a developer I would love if I could tweak some of the features of the AIS Dispatcher software for my own purposes, and expand its platform compatibility to suit my needs. I would like to inquire about the availability of any source code for this application, as it appears development has been on hold for some time, and the program is already freely distributed. Please let me know if this is currently available somewhere or how I might go about acquiring it.

Thanks!

Des

Hi, rward!
AIS Dispatcher will be open source, but I can't tell you when exactly. The code has to be rewritten before going open source(available to all) and this will take some time.

I had the same problem with my Linux server where AIS dispatcher refused to run (OpenSUSE 12.3 64bits)

I have used an alternative whith gpsd and the client gps2udp.
gps2udp new client allows to export AIS data to multiple provider which is what you need to share AIS data.
  http://catb.org/gpsd/gps2udp.html

The code of gps2udp will be included in the next release (3.10) but is already available on the the gpsc git repo. It will work with older version of gpsd.
It will work on Linux, Mac and Windows.

If you use OpenSUSE it is already included in the repo  Application:Geo:OpenCPN as addon of gpsd 3.9. itis accessible via 1 click install.
(I fixed my problem :-)

I'm building a compact AIS dispatching station using a Raspberry Pi. Found working software at www.aishub.net/downloads/aisdispatcher_arm_glibc.tar.gz. But it seems to use only the eth0 interface for UDP output, not wlan0. Even if eth0 is not connected.

If available I would look into the source code. Also for the capability to redirect output to a file and not to console only. aisdispatcher .... >/tmp/log does not work.

Source code as Open Source could help to improve the product.

Regards
Klaus

AISDispatcher transmits according to the routing table. It is not fixed to any specific interface. Please check your default gateway.

Send me also your command line parameters.

Best regards,
Peter

Hi, I am interested in this open source problem. We are a research group in a university and we are highly interested in this. Can  you provide us the source code for only research/academic purposes ? If the admin have an email to contact please provide it here. we are highly appreciated this.

Hi, back in 2013 @Des suggested that aisdispatch would be made open source.  Has this happen?

Thanks...
