Visualizing GPS Data from Skiing
Another test application for visualizing data collected by my GPS logger. This time the data is from skiing at Whistler Mountain.
I only made it to Whistler once for skiing this past winter season but I didn't forget my GPS logger. I collected the day's data and, aside from browsing Google Earth a couple times, it's remained untouched.
Well, I've finally included it in a map visualization, a visualization which has been torn down and rebuilt over the past several weeks. The end result hasn't changed much, but here's an idea of what's different:
- Rebuilt the visualization in Flex
- Now using the Yahoo Maps API instead of UMap
- Data is tied in with a new Drupal content type and loaded into Flex using XML-RPC!
- The GPS logger data was modified using a simple editor which also ties into Drupal
The Drupal integration is mainly for the purposes of Gone Nomad but I'm building it as a module which I hope to release down the road.
As before, fatter lines indicate more time spent at a location while thin lines mean I was zipping down the hill.
