FIS-B Online

I know it's supposed to be an airborne product, but is there an online source of FIS-B products somewhere? One of our weather guys would like to see what it looks like without the need for an airplane...

Scott - Good question. I'd like to see such a site, too, if you come up with
one. Just curious about it.

I'm not doing well with Google, so I thought maybe the Avsig Brain Trust and Avionics Buying Group would have some info...

I'm going to be at Sun n Fun all week, so maybe one of the FAA types down there can point me in the right direction.

I don't know if any output standard exists. As far as I know, there are certain items available, and the format of displaying the items is left to the vendor.

I've seen ADS-B FIS-B weather on Wing-X on an iPad, and on the Skyradar iPad application. Both display data differently.

Here is a paper I just googled up that might provide some additional data.

Thursday morning at 9 in the FAA building, and again at 11 in some classroom setup elsewhere. I'll be reconnoitering Wednesday so I know where the heck I'm supposed to be...
