iSat coordinator python program

py
Alpha pro­gram run­ning.

I’ve been enjoy­ing learn­ing Python, it’s a pow­er­ful lan­guage with a huge num­ber of appli­ca­tions. One of the first full pro­grams I wrote was the Log­ging pro­gram which tracks the posi­tion of satel­lites and records the data in an exter­nal file at the desired inter­val.

At the start of a new min­ute the pro­gram records coor­di­nates, prints and exports them into a new or exist­ing CSV (Excel) file. I’m going to add a GUI as well as addi­tion­al func­tion­al­i­ty.

I enjoyed writ­ing the pro­gram and came up with many inno­v­a­tive solu­tions to prob­lems.
