Hi Mike,
  If you'd like an easy to understand and up to date introduction to APRS take a look at my beginner guide.   It answers this very question.
 I'm not one of the APRS super Gurus, but wasn't able to find a document that worked for me when I got into APRS and eventually wrote it for others just starting.
It is on my site below, but her is a direct download link:

I have a little bit of confusion about how APRS tracking data gets routed.  I made an assumption that my station could directly receive APRS data from another station or from a self contained tracking device. I could then use my APRS software to view the data.  It was suggested to me that all of the data gets routed to a digipeater before coming to my station.  

I'm thinking that both possibilities are true, but I would like to be sure. Could someone please clarify this?
