SARTrack is a comprehensive application that can display APRS trackers on the world map and help you communicate with search and rescue teams in the field, from your desktop. The software allows you to connect to global servers and send out the position of your team for live tracking. Moreover, you can easily mark other teams’ location on the map.
Radio-desktop rescue system
SARTrack allows you to locate and monitor multiple APRS radio stations at the same time and mark their position on a topographical representation. The aim of the software is to gather as much live data as possible and store it on your computer, in order for you to be able to perform the tasks even with no Internet connection.
As a user, you are a station (or tracker) and you are assigned a tactical callsign, a color track, a customizable icon and screen label. Each of these elements can be displayed on the map in order to identify your location, according to your personal preferences: you may choose to mark your location by your tactical callsign, coordinates, speed, altitude or course.
Easy to handle interface
SARTrack is designed as an un-docked application, meaning that each function is displayed in a separate window, which facilitates its use on a multi-monitor setup. The maps are provided through several services, including Google, MapQuest Satellite, ArcGIS World Satellite, OpenSeaMap, Canada Toporama or NewZealand Topo. The software supports multiple maps displayed in transparency layers one on top of another.
Moreover, you may view terrain maps, topographical views, temperature, radar, wind, pressure, precipitation or wave height representations, offered by certain online services. Moreover, you may view a list of all the stations in your tracking area, significant objects, such as first aid centers or operations headquarters.
