    Hello,

    I am looking for an application that can create a map by me carrying the phone and walking a certain path.

    There is a 300 acre park near where I live. The maps they provide are way off base. I would like to walk all of the trails and have the Droid record where I am walking.

    You know, this may be easier than I think using ASE and writing a Python script. I'll just get the location every half second and write it out to a file. It'll be interesting to see how the maps turn out, seeing the low resolution of the GPS receiver.

    Cheers,
    -JK

    Some kind of Tracking app like this would be pretty interesting.

    +1 for My Tracks

    I used it for mapping trails while out on an ATV.
    Does an excellent job and even allows you to insert times and points along the way. Once done it will sync with Google Maps for storage.
