I supported the dump1090 project with SVG data for 'real looking' planes. This plane shaped markers are looking way better then the original arrows.
This data is integrated in the bdavenport/terribl fork of the MalcomRobb tree.
They did range rings, visualized reception data and some other cool gmap stuff, too.
So dump1090 looks little like a fusion of VRS and adsbSCOPE :).
Keep up the good work buddies.
