An informal APRS Tactical Mapping experiment conducted
during the June 2012 Great Ohio Bicycle Adventure (GOBA).
This was not an 'official' part of GOBA operations,
but since GOBA was using APRS beaconing
on a few of its vehicles this year, and these vehicles
were travelling in our general Southern Ohio vicinity,
this provided an opportunity to test drive some
newer APRS mapping and software tools.
The focus was on ways in which APRS techniques
and technology can be used as a tactical
and logistics support tool.
A short narrated slide presentation summarizes the
results and examples from this experiment. It runs
roughly 10 minutes in Windows Media Player (.WMV)
format, and is roughly 26 MegaBytes in size. The
