Where's Ollie Project
This is a pilot project to investigate the possible usages of hand-held GPS location monitoring, recording and sharing. The project consists of a hand-held application (Andriod, BlackBerry, or Motorola iDEN) that pushes real-time GPS data to a server over an HTTP connection. The server then hosts a website front-end that can be used to view the user's current location and location history.
