GPS Experiments with Daniel Belasco Rogers

Yesterday we went for a stroll around the Banff centre and took some interesting GPS readings to get an idea of where and how certain GPS devices behave in a variety of surroundings.  This was particularly relevant to my project, but it will take some real leg work today to get an idea of how well my own GPS device will behave on the ground.  Yesterday was the first time I'd managed to acquire a KML file from a GPS device and map in on Google Maps.

This is a picture of me video taping the GPS as we were walking (thanks Nikki!).

Below is the route we took around the Banff centre, the white line is a little tricky to see but you can toggle it between the views to see it better.
