Plot boat/ship position

Dear,

I have developed simple boat simulator, where physics is based on square drag law with neglected wave resistance (small Fr number). There is throttle and rudder control in plans are also thrusters.

I would like to use OpenCPN to plot my position and heading on the map. Got the code from github and try to crack the plotter, but I would need an additional help, code is very complex. Can someone of the OpenCPN developers give me a hint in which class can I find the boat position and course plotter.

I plan to release simulator under free license when stable.

Thank for any hints/help + cheers,
Sandro
