ISS challege not displaying ISS position correctly


I do the ISS Challenge and the position of the ISS is quite far off from where it actually is.
See attached picture - Kano shows ISS near South Africa but the ISS was over Australia at the time.
Where is the issue?


Hi! We’ve checked with the development team and the offset seems to be based on the fact that we ingest the ISS position from third party data that might be a bit off sync to real time. Due to the high speed at which the ISS travels, this might mean the position is not exactly the current one, but slightly delayed from the real one. Does that make sense?



Is there any way to get this to display in real time then?



Hi Jase, there isn’t right now via the Kano App, but you can always use a different service that provides such data in real time, like this one. You can do this by taking that data and converting it into an RSS-readable format, then using the RSS component in the Kano app to read those values, as if you were reading news headlines.

Hope this helps
