Geosnapper,  Gadgeteer, and GPS Drawing
September 17, 2003
/Mike Liebhold

Geosnapper is a world map of contributed digital photos. They suggest that geocodes be manually copied from an external gps device until hybrid gps camera phones are available.  - Thanks Tim Oren and Howard Rheingold

Meet Gadgeteer, a how to do it guide to logging your location using a gps phone. The site offers a free   downloadable applet for a Nextel GPS phone, and a trial web map your location on uLocate a service apparently normally offered to families to track children and elders.

I wrote a java app which I downloaded to the phone. .. [this is now available for download ] The phone has a built in GPS and every 2 minutes the phone sends my Latitude and Longitude to a server that has a Perl script running on it listening for the phone's messages. The message is a single 55-60 byte UDP packet that has Latitude, Longitude, speed, and heading"

The GPS Drawing site by Jeremy Wood and Hugh Pryor
has a gellery of digital mark making using GPS along with links to a few good 'how to do it' gps resources. For me, these drawings have the fresh exhuberant  feeling  of  early childhood finger painting.. Here are some amazing  contributed drawings from friends.

The WAAG society in Amsterdam has been doing GPS maps for quite a while now. They describe their work this way:
Every inhabitant of Amsterdam has an invisble map of the city in his head. The way he moves about the city and the choices made in this process are determined by this mental map. Amsterdam RealTime attampts to visualize these mental maps through examining the mobile behaviour of the city's users.

During two months (3 Oct to 1 Dec 2002) all of Amsterdam's residents are invited to be equipped with a tracer-unit. This is a portable device developed by Waag Society which is equipped with GPS: Global Positioning System. Using satellite data the tracer calculates its geographical position. Therse tracers' data are sent in realtime to a central point. By visualizing this data against a black background traces, lines, appear. From these lines a (partial) map of Amsterdam constructs itself. This map does not register streets or blocks of houses, but consists of the sheer movements of real people.."
