Anyone know of a basic map program that will map basic long/lat co-ordinates?
Do a search on APRS or WinAPRS. This is software used by ham radio operators to show location of vehicle on mapping software. There are several ways to upload data but requires some experimenting. I have even seen it tied to cell phones where the data was sent automatically every 15min to a webserver.
It can also be done with an internet connection. If you use radios you need a license.
This software is often used for weather spotters to see how close they are to the storm and for races to see where runners or bikers are on a course.
