Therefore for APRStt and RFID' I think it best to clearly show up on the map as a distinct vertical table located in a logical place on the map.

So what APRS application can do this?

The closest to this is the stacked symbols in UIview.  All the posits 
from the same location wind up stacked on top of each other,  with only 
the latest one on top, hiding the ones below.    When you double-click 
(to get full details on the symbol), a table of all the stacked posits 
appears -- but you don't realize that multiple posits are stacked UNTIL 
you click.     Screen shot of this menu here:
