UrtheCast Satellites


I’m working my way through the UrtheCast API documentation, and got side-tracked into making a satellite tracker map. This map shows the ten most recent locations of four satellites (ISS, Deimos-1, Deimos-2, and Lansat-8) and their imagery swaths, I think. The reason I say I think is that the call for the imagery swaths (or the forecast) is set for the future, although the returned timestamps appear to be in the past.

I also think I figured out how to hide my UrtheCast api key and secret from prying eyes through a PHP proxy, but I could also be wrong about that! If you can see them, let me know. 🙂
