I am wondering how to view an area of aprs tracking (I have seen it done for the Tour De Cure in Saratoga and am wondering where online (or do I need a bit of software) to view this information? I have downloaded an app for my droid phone that does aprs-is but I have to wait for a passcode to come through email before I can log on and check it out. I was just thinking that someone could get me some first hand information on the aprs service. Thanks.

Matt, aprs.fi will show you local activity. As far as the Tour de cure….I think they were using a direct APRS receiver into a mapping program…so they were looking at live, local APRS info, not thru the world wide APRS networks… When we (TRYON) get the ability to wrutw for grant money, I would really like to build an APRS set up like that for us to use for local public service events and emergencies, including portable APRS beacons. I was also reading about a club that was doing live video feeds during events to net control….all over amatuer radio frequencies! Wouldnt that be a great tool to offer?

That would be outstanding, just rolling it out though may be a lot of work. We as a club can make it happen though.
