  • News - Real Time GPS with Google… | about 3 years ago

    Nice documentation. I just finished the same project but with a XBee modem and not a GSM modem (I worried about costs). I too started with Python on the web server side, but realized I’d be serving livelink updates to Google Maps/Earth with Javascript, so I rewrote that module in Java and persisted the data with Hibernate – hides all of that icky SQL stuff. I’ve also had a board fab’d to hold all the parts and I’ve gotten the package down to 1.1"X 1.6".
    I might offer another suggestion: Add “ID” and “DATETIME” fields to your table… I quickly realized not only would it be fun to watch more than one target, but being able to “play back” the tracks can be interesting/valuable.

No public wish lists :(
