To see where I live try 
http://maps.google.com/maps?&ll=41.574280%2C-88.054324&spn=0.030334%2C0.0483
30
  
This does not show the exact position of my house since I didn't want the
bubble and shadow to show on the map.  

Should be a simple matter to convert an APRS position to decimal degrees for
generating the map query.  Also, once you get the map an X can be placed on
the desired location.

Not sure what spn is but I suspect this defines the extent of the windows in
degrees, offset from the Lat,Lon.  Shouldn't take long to figure it out.

Certainly seems to be viable web mapping solution at this point.
