APRS World can help you with this (uses MySQL).

You'll have to contact KB0THN about getting access (linked above).

I wrote a couple web-apps that use Google Maps and APRS World. It's
really easy to get data from their database (especially with the MySQL
functions in PHP). As long as you know how to open network sockets and
send and receive data, this shouldn't be too difficult.
