GPS Experiments 4

I bought a GPS data logger this week; it also communicates with my phone, so I can use some location based services.  The datalogging function is neat; I haven’t tried to tag any photos yet, but I’ve been leaving it on and tracking where I’ve been.  Here’s my day:

If you zoom in, you’ll see that the times when I was indoors for long periods of time it gets really jumpy; all things considered, I think it’s working pretty well.  Maybe in the future I’ll post more interesting/useful maps :)

    Did you use the software that came with the unit to make the map on Google, third party, or something Google itself provided? It would be ideal if we could just upload common data file format to google write on their website and have it make the map directly.

    The software that came with it pulls the data points from the device, and lets you export to gpx or kmz, and Google Maps has a feature where you can pull in data files- the only issue was that I had to pull the kml file out of the kmz for some reason (kmz is a zip with the kml file and some other stuff).
