Automatic Packet Reporting System (APRS) is an amateur radio-based system for real time digital communications of information of immediate value in the local area.


It is used by many amateur radios around the world. It allows you to share location, text messages, GEO points and many other information without using the Internet or GSM.

Currently, it allows you to connect direct communication (handheld radios and radio stations) and indirect communication via the Internet (telephones and computers), for example via the APRS.fi portal.

Combining the accuracy and capabilities of Locus terrain maps with the APRS system, a powerful combine will be created, helping e.g. in search operations or simply during expeditions.


API APRS.fi and Locus are available, but unfortunately my programming skills are too small to write such an add-on myself.
