Innovation Like Crazy With Google Maps

Monday, July 18th, 2005

Last weekend I was working a lot with Google Maps. They are so fun to play with! I’ve created several web services. Not all of them are ready to be released yet, but if you have a GPS unit, Garmin eTrex for example, and software, like EasyGPS for example, you can upload and view GPX files.

All of my maps services will be available through this address:

If you have any suggestions along these lines, feel free to leave a comment, or send me an email or something. Thanks.

GPS and Geocaching

Friday, July 15th, 2005

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.
