I think a BarCode Application is ideal for APRS.

I hope we can integrate the Barcodes into APRS in a seamless way
so that they can be tabulated even on existing machines. Here
are some options:
:BLN1SCAN :A bulletin to all
:DATABASEx:A message to "databaseX callsign"
=POSIT/position comment text
MESSAGE FORMAT: A message to s specific applications callsign
wouild be great for generic applications. They will be captured
by all APRS clients and can be captured in FINDU etc.
POSIT FORMAT: The POSIT format is good for an application where
the person with the wand is moving about. Such as moving
through a building or something (or a cave) and whenever they
see a barcode on the wall, they scan it and their wand sends the
LAT/LONG position AND any other data that is on the bar code.
Can anyone see any application that cannot be fit into either of
