From libhomeradar 1.002 there is a simple webserver option included in the library. From your program you can enable or disable the webserver. If you are connected to your own SBS-1 or RadarBox station you can display the contacted aircrafts within your favorite web browser on Google Maps.
You should copy the provided 'webtemplate.html' file into your program folder before you start the webserver function. There is also a single example included within the latest library download which runs under Windows in the taskbar (see the README.TXT from the library package)

/* Activate or deactivate internal webserver to show aircraft positions on Google(TM) maps
   Set onoff to TRUE (1) will enable the server. onoff to FALSE (0) will stop the server
   srv is the hostname on which the server will listen. Set srv to NULL will enable
   the listener on all available ips on your server.
   The default port is 8080. You can change this by setting the port value != 0
   Note for Linux users: If you wish to bind this server on a port below 1024 you'll
   root access.
extern int homeradar_webserver(LHR handle, const int onoff, const char *srv, const int port);


After you have enable the local webserver you can point your browser to http://localhost:8080/ (if you havn't changed the port) to see the contacted aircrafts on the map and within the information table on the right.
The webtemplate is a simple display and show route javascript. You can enhance the functions of the script if you want.
