The KML services available in Google Earth allow you to feed icons, lines, polygons and other information into Google Earth. The http://aprskml.dev.java.net/ software is an application that you run locally. It connects to the APRSIS feeds when configured to do so, and can then provide the information it receives as KML data that Google Earth can consume.

It is possible to then create an APRS readonly view of data on Google Earth by just using the **Add->Network Link** menu item, you can configure any HTTP accessible data to be downloaded and displayed.


Another way to incorporate APRS with google earth is to interface with APRS servers for positions.

Andrew VK4TEC has created a few scripts to help:-

  1. Run google earth
  2. Add a new network link
  3. Add a description and this as the URL

Substitute "callsign" with your target callsign

http://aprs.he.fi also has the ability to interoperate with Google Earth through an interactive KML file, as well as some great online Google API capabilities.


This add-on works with UI-View32 and interfaces to external mapping programs such as Google Earth
