What is APRS?

APRS (Automatic Packet Reporting System) is a digital communications system that uses packet radio to send real time tactical information (often on amateur radio frequencies). Information shared over the APRS network is for example coordinates, altitude, speed, heading, text messages, alerts, announcements, bulletins and weather data. APRS has been developed by Bob Bruninga, callsign WB4APR. More information about APRS can be found at www.aprs.org or at wikipedia.

APRS Track Direct?

APRS Track Direct is a collection of tools that you can use as starting point if you want to create an APRS tracking website. You can use data from APRS-IS, CWOP-IS, OGN or any other source that uses the APRS specification.

Instructions found on GitHub will get you a copy of the project up and running on your local machine for development and testing purposes . These tools are intended for experienced developers who want a foundation for a web-based APRS tracking solution. To be able to use the tools, you need experience with Linux, Postgresql, Python and Javascript. You should also have knowledge of APRS and preferably an understanding of what aprsc is used for.
