Consider FotoForensics. This is a tool that uses error level analysis (ELA) to identify parts of an image that may have been modified or “photoshopped”. This tool allows you to either upload, or enter the URL of a suspicious image and will then highlight areas where disparities in quality suggest alterations may have been made. It also provides a number of sharing options, which are useful for challenging the recirculation of inaccurate information, because they allow you to provide a direct link to your FotoForensics analysis page.

Jeffrey's Exif Viewer

Since I'm getting more interested in photography and understanding cameras and techniques, I find myself wanting to know the details under which a photo was taken. Modern digital cameras encode a lot of such data — shutter speed, lens focal length, etc. — into the image file, generally called “Exif Data” (“Exif” stands for “exchangeable image file format”).

Ship/Marine Tracker

Sometimes objects are seen over water, in our specific location it could be Port Philip Bay, Bass Strait, The Surf Coast or even the Tasman. Use this tracker to see if ships venture in this area, also look for buoys or beacons.

Webtrak - Air services Australia

How to use Webtrak

WebTrak uses information from air traffic control secondary surveillance radars to monitor aircraft:

  • within 50 kilometres of the airport
  • up to 30 000 feet above mean sea level (AMSL).

Aircraft noise data is collected daily from noise monitors strategically located around communities close to the airport.

WebTrak now also provides an overview of where aircraft typically fly, providing an understanding of operations and patterns over time.

Common flight paths are shown as ‘swathes’ and show how often a particular flight path is used on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis, by time of day or weekday/weekend.

You can also look at data from noise monitors over these periods.

This information will help you gain a better understanding of aircraft operations and noise in your area. It will also allow you to find out things such as whether the aircraft operation is typical or not, which suburbs are overflown more frequently than others and the seasonal variations for flight paths.
