[aprssig] APRS Mapping with Weather Radar Overlay?

Spotter Network members can enter their callsign and SSID and that
information can then be overlaid in the GR Level 3 weather radar software.
Spotter Network monitors the APRS IP stream and parses the data for member
callsigns. It updates as quickly as one minute. A simple configuration into
GRLevelX tells it where to get the data to overlay on the radar map.

VERY slick AND it doesn't require APRS on the monitoring end...

Good Afternoon Group,

I hope you don't find this question terribly off topic from the groups 
intended use, but I'd like to know if there's a way display an APRS map with

a weather radar overlay?

Our club's program next month is focused on the manner in which our NCS 
utilizes APRS mapping to track myself and others with APRS equipped rigs 
when we're out storm spotting. I'd love to be able to show an APRS.fi or 
similar map with radar embedded/overlaid if at all possible.

Even if it's a commercial product. Any recommendations this group might have

you be most appreciated.

I've made a small change in the aprs.fi embedded map launcher, and it
works with IE9 again.

Seems like IE9 introduced an incompatibility in the javascript CSS DOM
parser. It refuses to understand a size definition which *every* other
browser understands. Luckily the workaround was easy.
