Hello to all,

I installed gpsd and gpsd-clients packages on my Raspberry Pi 
(version 3.16-4, Raspbian Stretch distro).

I was wondering if there is a tool to draw a nice skyview image 
to be shown via a web interface. I found two tools included in 
the /usr/share/doc/gpsd-clients/examples/ directory: skyview.php 
and, but they are quite basic and unactractive (they 
came from the /contrib/ git directory).

So I wrote a simple Python script which reads the JSON data of a 
"SKY" response, then it produces the SVG file. I made it as much 
as parametric as possible, to customize layout and colors.

Can this script be of some interest to someone? Should I 
contribute it somewhere?


I try to attach here the script and a sample image...
