Here is the cgi for starters - you have to add the mysql connectivity to
findu.com to get $lat and $long

http://findu.com/cgi-bin/google_earth.cgi?Call=VK4TEC-9 (as an example)

@pairs= split(/&/, $ENV{'QUERY_STRING'});
foreach $pair (@pairs) {
($name, $value) = split(/=/, $pair);
$value =~ tr/+/ /;
$value =~ s/%([a-fA-F0-9][a-fA-F0-9])/pack("C", hex($1))/eg;
$name =~ tr/+/ /;
$name =~ s/%([a-fA-F0-9][a-fA-F0-9])/pack("C", hex($1))/eg;
# print $name."=".$value;
$FORM{$name} = $value;
# print $FORM{$name} ."=".$value;
}
#print $FORM{'Number'} ;
#print $FORM{'Date'};
$date = $FORM{'Date'};
$callsign = $FORM{'Call'};
print ("Content-type: text/html\n\n");
print "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"UTF-8\"?> \n";
print "<kml xmlns=\"http://earth.google.com/kml/2.0\"> \n";
print "<Placemark> \n";
print "<name>".$callsign."</name> \n";
print "<description>".$callsign." APRS Mobile (".$date.")</description> \n";
print "<LookAt>\n";
print "<longitude>".$long."</longitude>\n";
print "<latitude>".$lat."</latitude>\n";
print "<range>365.2646606980322</range>\n";
print "<heading>0</heading>\n";
print "<tilt>40</tilt>\n";
print "</LookAt>\n";
print "<styleUrl>root://styleMaps#default+nicon=0x307+hicon=0x317</styleUrl>

  Steve,

  I am at the moment raiding findu.com to generate .kml files for the google
earth application and then people raid my box.

  http://earth.google.com/download-earth.html (download site)

  Not web delivered dodgy'ed up maps, the google earth application which is
free and auto tracks and zooms !!!!

  What I am proposing is this

  1) we make a cgi that can live on findu.com that generates a kml file on
demand so people can use the google earth application with findu.com
  2) you would then point you google earth application network link at
findu.com and ask it for the lastest position.

  We would then have satellite maps for all of the planet a one stop shop !

  more detail can be seen here

  http://www.tech-software.net/globalearth.htm


  All we need to supply is the callsign, you supply us a location. Simple.

  I will even donate the cgi !! and notes for your web site

  findu.com/cgi-bin/google_earth.cgi&call=vk4tec-9

  What it needs to produce is this :-
  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
  <kml xmlns="http://earth.google.com/kml/2.0">
  <Placemark>
  <name>VK4KHP-9</name>
