Trying to build my own ground control station (GCS) for different drones I have. One is a boat and the other a plane. I have looked at the GCS's available and they are great, but I want to do something much simpler. I really only need.want to put a red dot on a GeoTiff, stored natively on the GCS.
The TDMA radio is Ethernet based and the drones have GPSd running on their Raspberry Pi, which publish to TCP port 2947.
What packages or applications would you recommend to achieve this ?
Should I look at hacking GPSDrive or QGIS. QGIS looks great, but has lots of bells and whistles.
Is there something simpler ?
Would prefer to avoid anything written in Java, preferring C, Java Script and Python.
