Progress a little slow this week due to a nasty cold, but I now have the ability to download the tracklogs from a Garmin GPS over USB and display them on the map. Here’s the tracklog from my walk up to Pen y Fan at the weekend:
I plan to add the ability to review the speed and altitude profiles of tracklogs, but for now I’m focussed on helping the user review their activity and log their finds. Now that I can see where I’ve been, I want to be able to note which caches I found, and then log them as efficiently as possible. Ammotin will have its own web browser, with Greasemonkey-esque extensibility which will allow me and 3rd party extension authors to write scripts which can augment a webpage using information from the Ammotin database.
That might not sound exciting, but trust me, you’re going to love it.
