The application I was testing was My Maps Editor and Android application to create and edit Google My Maps, and it pretty much worked first time as expected allowing be to create a simple map of my walk.
At the end of 2008 it’s quite difficult to get really excited by this as we have come to expect so much from mainstream geospatial technology.
But just think what I have achieved from my walk, not only have I created a multimedia rich database with potentially metre accuracy geospatial features, I have also created a distribution channel to publish the database within minutes to hundreds of millions of users.
All from a mobile device that costs a few hundred pounds.
Maybe over christmas I will complete my recycling map for Richmond
