Re: Feature Request - Distance Measurement

Actually, mentioning aprs.fi, if you zoom into your area, then click on the link for Google Earth KML on the right hand side, it will open up a live feed in Earth and with Earth, you have available, a  measurement tool.

Uh-oh, you started off this request in a bad way... you mentioned you

There is something kind of like this in place already.

Right click on the map, and a menu will pop up.
The last entry will be a set of coordinates.
Move down to the coordinates and a submenu will open up.
Select Set Destination, and the spot you pointed at will become a destination.
On screen under your message notifier box, you'll find a box with a
distance and bearing.
That distance and bearing is from your location to the destination as
the crow flies.

This is only good for figuring out how far it is from your location to
another location, but if you move your station to the location where
help is needed, you can then measure to the nearest responders and
figure out who's the closest.

Of course, if you move your station, you may end up transmitting your
location as being at the location requiring assistance unless you
disable beaconing, or make sure you don't transmit by some other
means.

It's not exactly what you are looking for, but it will work. I use
aprs.fi a lot at work just because it gives me access to Google Maps,
and it has the measurement tool. I'd use Google Maps, but there's no
measurement tool.

I recall a feature in UI-View where you clicked on one location, then moved to a second, drawing a line as you went and measuring the distance between the points.

If you changed the icon in APRSISCE/32, the old icon should have gone
away. I think you had two copies running at once though, so the i-gate
copy probably saw the house. The house icon will time out after a
while.

If you changed the icon in APRSISCE/32, the old icon should have gone

Yes, CONFIGURE | GENERAL, then click on the icon. Select Overlay,
Symbol 38, Overlay 50.

but read that such a station should have an SSID of -0.
There is no hard fast rule about what SSID you HAVE to use. There are
suggestions, but not rules. When APRS started out, the FIRST and only
way to assign an icon was with the SSID. That gave only 16 icons. Then
a new way of defining which icon was used was created by assigning a
special TOCALL. Then yet another way was created by embedding the icon
data in the packet data. So, if you are stuck sending RAW GPS strings,
with no way other way of defining the desired icon, you will need to
use a specific SSID to do so. You're not in that boat.

So I changed it (bad idea) -- as of this morning have changed back
to kc2nyu-1. From all indications here, station has been staying on
air without a shutdown.
Not really a bad idea... I just didn't go snooping for you on a
different SSID. If you want to use a different SSID, it is perfectly
fine. I just need to go looking for you again to keep snooping! :)

Re: Looking for US County Data

Thanks, Brian.  I need to end up with a kml file that uses decimal degrees.

Here is an example of the overlay that results from the Google database I referenced in my original post.  You will need to pan to the west a bit to see the area in question.  This is an overlay for Warren County, Indiana. The southeastern border of the county is the Wabash River but the small number of vertices (17) in the Google database makes this edge of the county just a rough approximation.  So, ideally, I am looking for a database having more vertices and in decimal degrees.

Subject: [aprsisce] Looking for US County Data

 

 

Can anyone suggest a source for geometry data for US Counties?  I'm trying to put together some overlays showing county boundaries.

I found once source at:

https://www.google.com/fusiontables/DataSource?docid=1spDIxVlkZNje3s503ke5G3lXTVVHm3F-RXR5Wpo

but there are not a lot of vertices for most counties.  When a county is rectangular, the resulting boundary looks pretty good.  But, otherwise, not so much, like when a boundary follows a river.
