GPS Routes

After the walk we did the other day to Lathkill Dale, Neil sent me the GPX file from his Garmin GPS system which he was carrying with him during the walk. The system basically stores your position on a fixed timescale so it records your course. Neil uses this for matching up photo's from his camera with GPS locations. Not something I particularly need to do, but I found this cool website that will read the file and plot the course on a google map. Just click on the image above to see the full 8.5 mile route we did on Sunday.

I feel an interesting programming pet project coming on :-)
