What's new @ OPENAPRS?

Wednesday, September 2, 2009


Some of you may have noticed that for a week in August OpenAPRS was unreachable. Our internet connection had an unfortunate failure which knocked us out for about 5 days completely. We are currently back up and running and everything seems to be back to normal.

We are working on replacing a lot of our main code with some new development code which should enhance our current services quite a bit. For most browsers (excluding Internet Explorer) there should be a pretty good speed enhancement. IE doesn't seem to parse Javascript very quickly so unfortunately there isn't much I can do about that. Live updates will happen more frequently, at high zooms a cluster map of activity will be displayed and APRS stations displayed won't be just limited to the visible screen instead limited to a larger radius around the center.

At this time some functionality still needs to be worked on in the development code, such as the ability to specify a map center or callsign tracking from the URL which is currently supported in our live environment. I'm also working on a replacement for the Ham's Near You functionality since Google's API doesn't allow a flood of reverse address requests which makes snagging 70+ addresses and showing them on a map very difficult.

For those of you darring enough to take on some fun, point your browser here. I make no warranty on the development code until I can finish it and debug it a bit but I'd love to here your comments either on the blog or privately through OpenAPRS's contact page.
