One of the nice things about having a long break off work at Christmas is that I can write software for my entertainment. It never gets boring as there’s always something new to learn. Now I have the SOTA database to play with I thought I’d see what some of the data looks like on a map. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.

All the data comes from data which is in the public domain. The chaser data comes from the activator’s logs. i.e. the callsign the activator logged and uploaded to the database. Markers only appear for people in my callbook who were not details witheld and only for people located in G/GM/GW. S2S and other QSOs to stations who were not at their main station address are not considered. The accuracy of the marker will be better for those chasers located in urban areas, probably around 250m or so in these cases.
