New blog on the block: GeoRSS Blog, monitoring the development of this emerging standard. (Convert GeoRSS to KML here. On the to-do list: A converter that returns a network link rather than a static file.)
Two new GPS-to-KML converters on the Ogle Earth radar screen:
GEtrax (for Windows), which in addition to the plain vanilla converting also handles OziExplorer files, ham radio tracking data (via findu.com) and plot data live from a GPS device onto Google Earth. The author of the software writes, “The registered version of GEtrax is ten dollars (in US or Canadian funds).” Looks like Canadians are getting a discount, ay?
Greg Heppenstall’s Bungee is similar, but will let you upload KML placemarks as waypoints to your GPS device. USD $5.
Notes on the political, social and scientific impact of networked digital maps and geospatial imagery, with a special focus on Google Earth.
