What did you like about Depiction as an APRS tool versus didn't like? I had received a query from one of the ham radio organizers about using my program, but was unable to get the raster map image stuff working for him in time (not sure where they got the raster map from). I'd like to be ready for next year, and therefore would be interested in your observations on the Depiction program that you did use.
