javAPRS and DeLorme Maps
GIF files made with DeLorme's Street Atlas can be used easily by javAPRS.
Version 3.0 of Street Atlas gives the lat/lon of the cursor position. This feature
allows the edges of the map to be easily determined, and can be passed to javAPRS. Here is
the replay of my DCC trip drawn over a DeLorme map of the southeast US. It took less
than 3 minutes to make this map with Street Atlas, determine the map edges, convert
it to a GIF file, and set up this page. This method makes an unrealistic assumption
of the "flatness" of the map, but for small area maps this should be no problem.
