I guess you're looking at the aprs.fi API, (http://aprs.fi/page/api). No, 
currently it does not support position uploads. You'll need to generate an 
APRS packet, connect to the APRS-IS with a valid passcode, and submit it 
there. As a nice side effect, it'll go to other APRS systems from there 
too, not just aprs.fi.

If you have further questions about aprs.fi, it's probably best to post 
those to the aprs.fi discussion group
