Linking to a Map/Database lookup; REST API

First of all, thanks for the awesome website and hosting the WSPR database! I have two suggestions:

Currently, the Map and Database lookups on WSPRnet.org use a POST request to send query parameters. It would be nice if they used GET instead, so the parameters are URL encoded, and the lookups could be shared as link, e.g. http://wsprnet.org/drupal/wsprnet/map?band=40m&callsign=AI6OW.

I'm not sure what the current public database API situation for WSPRnet is, but it would be cool if WSPRnet exposed a modern REST API, so other may easily build applications on the database for additional analysis and visualization. I understand that the data set downloads are available, which are great for more in depth post-processing, but are unwieldy for simpler applications.
