GPS drawing is a nice and funny thing which you can do with your GPS.

According to NY Times (August 20, 2009), “Jeremy Wood, an artist based in London, coined the term “GPS drawing” nearly a decade ago and continues to maintain gpsdrawing.com, a Web site compiling his and other GPS-produced images from around the world”.

It’s very exciting to draw your own picture or write a message using GPS, just take a look at YouTube video about Jenny Rice running. For the best results move quickly (e.g. by vehicle), then your track will look smoother and more accurate.

 

 

Just draw a picture or even a text in your imagination or on the map and start the track on your GPS. When your route is finished, upload your tracks to GPSed.com.

Share them with your friends and don’t forget to take GPS with you next time!

In spring we announced the release of a brand new GPSed Monitoring Service. Let me remind you that GPSed Monitoring Service is rather useful for those who want to track mobile objects on the map in real-time.

Let’s say you own a cargo company and want to track your vehicles in real-time, or  have little children or aged relatives that need to be watched at all times. If that’s the case  you will be excited about becoming a GPSed Monitoring Service user and will get the latest update of the application right away.

So, what’s been new? The “Alerts” tab was added on /monitoring/dispatch page.

It allows you to check all “events” (so-called “alerts”) which happen with your “objects” (switch to off-line mode, speeding, start/stop, connection lost/recover).

All registered users are welcome to update GPSed Monitoring Service for free! Just configure the alerts for your objects and view the events’ log. Now you will know when the tracked vehicle stopped, speeded, etc.

We hope this will be useful for GPSed Monitoring Service users. We love your feedback and waiting for your impressions impatiently.

Kind regards,
GPSed Team

Summer, the most lovely season for trips, has come. Do not forget to take your mobile device with GPSed application installed on a vacation and you will not regret. The summer for our team started with GPSed Web Services improvements.

The number of GPSed users and tracks uploaded are increasing every day. And we are happy to meet all of you on GPSed website. Nevertheless some of you probably noticed small troubles when our Web Services freeze occasionally. Sometimes this could happen as every day new users are coming and lots of new tracks are uploaded.

As we started searching for a solution, database refactoring was conducted. We are glad to inform you that GPSed Web Service should not be slow anymore.

Hope you’ll find this improvement useful. Stay tuned to more news and have a great summer!

Kind regards,
GPSed Team
