   Hi,

   http://he.fi/misc/hamvention.html

   I'd like to hightlight the possibility to embed live aprs.fi maps on a 
web page by just inserting a few rows of javascript in the HTML code. The 
link above shows a live APRS map view of Dayton, with updates in 
near-real-time when new data is received on the APRS-IS. No need to reload 
the page. No refresh tags needed. You can do this on your own pages, 
for your own city, balloon project or special event - instructions are at:

  http://aprs.fi/page/embed

Or just see the HTML source code of the hamvention.html page. There's also 
an older blog post about the subject:

  http://oh7lzb.blogspot.com/2007/09/live-aprs-maps-on-your-own-web-page.html

Here's the HTML required to show the map:

<p>
         <script type="text/javascript">
         // latitude and longitude of the Hamvention site
         he_lat = 39.821738;
         he_lng = -84.25503;
         he_zoom = 10; // zoom out a bit
         he_width = 700; // size of the map, in pixels
         he_height = 450;
         </script>
         <script type="text/javascript" src="http://aprs.fi/js/embed.js">
         </script>
</p>

   Too bad I can't make it to Dayton, would be nice to see other APRS folks 
face-to-face.
