Sledding, Running, Mapping -- Groove gets geospatial data on the move

Sledding, Running, Mapping -- Groove gets geospatial data on the move

Welcome to 2008!  I've been off on vacation for a bit -- enjoying a great new england winter with plenty of skating and sledding with the kids, and racking up some running miles as well.  I got a slick running toy under the Christmas tree:  a Garmin 305, which tracks all my running data, and keeps me well informed as I huff and puff up the hills.

Now, if I wanted to share some of that geo-spatial data for business purposes, I might look for something a little more robust and customizable than the mashup offered at www.motionbased.com.  Alistair Speirs has a good description and review of InfoPatterns TouCanNavigate app that runs on Groove. You can read all about it here: http://blogs.msdn.com/alspeirs/archive/2007/12/31/the-geocollaboration-toolbox-groove-and-toucan-navigate.aspx

For those of you that are coming to TR6, be sure to sign up for the Groove Certification Exam prep that we're running on Sunday, February 10th!  Check your mail for the registration details!

happy trails!
