Say Kookoo to a tracked cat

This is a nice one to share.  Wondering where his cat was hanging out when he was away for several days, this guy (Mark Spezio) decided to attach a tracking device to his cat.  The IEEE made a nice audio commented photo/video report of it:

Now he isn't using BT747 - if he were he could reduce the side effect of these large spikes on his track.  And as far as the device is concerned, I couldn't make out which one he is using.  Hints welcome.

GPSLog Labs - Another site to share tracks

GPSLog Labs is another site where you can store your tracks that is well worth a visit.  It analyses your track to find positions where you stopped and splits the track in several subsections.

The site is pretty responsive too.

I added this to the list of sites where you can share your tracks.

Open Route Service

I discovered an 'open' service that I did not know about yet: Open Route Service.   The site demonstrates the route calculation between two positions on the map.  I did not test it a lot, but I will likely look into it later.

If you test it more before I do, do not hesitate to leave a comment.


Skytraq Log Format support and Conversion to GPX, KML, KMZ, ... .

I got a CanMore GT-730F(L) GPS Dongle with Data Logger to have a hands on evaluation of a device with a Skytraq Venus624 GPS inside.  I was pretty surprised to find that it did not have a battery allowing it to log positions without USB power.  The performance on my desk is not exceptionnal compared to the iBlue 747 A+, but for the moment I blame the design for it - not the chip.
