Yes, javAPRS support for Tiger maps goes back to before I started  
findU, which was when I stopped development on javAPRS and later  
passed it to Pete.

Also, I should have mentioned the APRS Map Manager project from  
findU, now mostly abandoned because of the availability of Google  
Maps, it formerly was readilly available by clicking on the APRSworld  
map displayed on the find page. It uses APRSworld for street level  
maps, also supports geo file maps, APRSdos maps, and palmAPRS map  
formats:

http://mm.aprs.net/map.cgi? 
map=APRSworld&call=*&lat=25.72750&lon=-80.30030&range=.1

You can easily get this for any station by enabling the APRSworld map  
in find.cgi (use the link in the left column, or add &APRSworld=yes  
to the URL, then clicking on the APRSworld map.
