GPS and Geocaching

Its amazing what you can do with a coordinate system, especially when you have a device that tells you exactly where you are in that system.

Just last week I recieved my GPS receiver in the mail. I was so excited! I was excited to the point that I went out Geocaching that very next day. It is pretty sweet. Check it out! My first, and so far only found Geocache: John’s MONUMENTal Campus Tour

I also just received a cable to hook up my GPS to my computer so that I can do all sorts of crazy stuff with Google Maps , Google Earth, and the GPX file format.

    Is there any way that I can be traced using a GPS reciver thorugh internet, like if am outside and my GPS is working is there any application by which anybody can trace me sitting on computer?

    If you hook up your GPS unit to the internet through a computer, PDA, or cellphone, sure. It would be trivial to write such an application and I’m sure there is at least one already out there.
