    Show yourself on Google Maps

    Hello,

    I am working on a simple program that does the following:

    Visual Basic program:
    - Read GPS data from FSUIPC
    - Push this data to MySql database on the internet every 10 secs

    PHP script:
    - Show current GPS position on Google Maps (auto update)

    The basic version works (see current position):
    http://www.steef.net/flight2/

    Next steps are:
    - Heading (show plane-icon in the direction of the current heading)
    - Show flightpath (polyline)
    - Review flights
    - Show date / time of the last position

    Is there already a freeware program like this? I personally like it very much because during flight I can see exactly where I am. It gives me a new dimension to my flight.

    If there is no program like this, is there interest for this by others?

    If you are flying online on VATSIM, vataware would be your choice: http://vataware.com/
    The ACARS provided bJeroen is another alternative: http://www.hoppie.nl/acars/

    There are also other ACARS systems like XAcars and FSAcars, that provide such a functunality.
