There doesn't currently appear to be a place where you can get a free, live feed of AIS (ship tracking) data, but you folks in the US can make FOIA requests for a data dump from NAVCEN. I see that you're in India, so that might not be possible. Maybe your own government has something similar. To get an idea of what's in AIS data, there's marinetraffic.com -- Basically, it's where the vessel is, its heading, and some vital stats like its name, length, etc. The pictures are sourced from somewhere else.

And here's a guide to AIS data data: catb.org/gpsd/AIVDM.html Caveat: the sentences might start with some other letters like !SAVDM instead of just !AIVDM. The hd-sf.com link on this page for a free feed for the San Francisco bay area appears to no longer work.

I used to work with this type of data, so I'm happy to answer any questions about it. If you're more interested in airplanes, do a search for "ADS-B".

Hey! I've noticed that in this post you use "guys" as a reference to the entire community, which is not made up of only guys but a variety of community members.

I'm running an experiment and hope you'll participate. Would you consider changing "guys" to a more inclusive term? If you're open to that, please let me know when you've changed it and I'll delete this comment.

For more information and some alternate suggestions, see dev.to/seankilleen/a-quick-experim....

Thanks for considering!

 
 

You can try to make a Wiktionary parser and then try to save it in JSON/XML format for each word.
You can find the dump xml here: dumps.wikimedia.org/enwiktionary/l...

 

What kind of parsers are you building and what kind of data do you need?

 

That I don't know. I know it sounds silly. But yeah, anything can work. Maybe weather data or something like that
