I'm back from a couple weeks of vacation. Went to the north, visited the northernmost corner of EU and the northernmost corner of mainland Europe. It turned out that there's some APRS coverage in Magerøya and elsewhere in the northern Norway! None of the interesting animals shown in these travel photos tried to eat me.
I've just installed a new build of the software with a couple of features I've implemented yesterday evening and tonight.
I've regenerated the whole map symbol (icon) set from the Revision H APRS symbols provided by Stephen H. Smith, WA8LMF. The symbols shown by aprs.fi should now match those shown by findu.com, UI-View (with Stephen's symbol files) and other programs running with up-to-date symbols.
Thanks to Stephen for maintaining the symbol tables!
The downside is that the new symbols are a bit smaller than the old ones, and they suffer more from the artifacts caused by rotation (for course/heading display).
The upside is that I've also implemented symbol overlays! For example, OH2RDG now has the letter N overlaid on top of the solid green star, both on the map, in Google Earth, and in the info pages.
There's also a short FAQ page.
