GeoSkating and GeoTracing
While wandering around the blogosphere I stumbled onto a thread on the O'reilly Radar discussing the recent FOSS4G. Simply following link after link I stumbled onto a cool tool that I was not familiar with. GeoTracing is a software platform for creating multimedial geo-applications. For example, create GPS tracklogs remotely from mobile phone, create overlayed maps by combining tracklogs, etc... some interesting uses have been mentioned including the likes of managing speedskating tracks... ie. GeoSkating. What a great way to manage routes and trecks... imagine bike riding routes, or maybe a holiday drive? For more see http://www.geotracing.com/ - they also have a Wiki and a Yahoo! discussion group. No doubt we'll hear more about this in the future.
