Tracking for the Tip to TIp

Recommended Posts

After the satellite company had a web server failure yesterday my geeks have been working on our own version of the maps page and it is up now.

www.tiptotip.co.uk/TipToTip.php

Our version has the advantage that you'll be able to see more than just the last 24 hours.

We'll be adding more features as time goes on. The next one on the list will be a direct download of the KML file so you can fly it in Google Earth on your own desktop.

Armchair TipToTip! Whatever next?

That's odd. Are you still getting the black shapes?

We're pretty frustrated. We've been testing this stuff for months now and it has worked flawlessly. The week we need it to work and the satellite company decide to make all sorts of changes to their software and web servers! Grrrr.

It is looking much better now though.

Fantastic to see the guys flying this evening!

You can download the Google Earth track points here (right click and "save link as"). These are the raw points from the very beginning, including when the guys have left their trackers on all night so there is a lot of data and some of it just wanders around in fields ;-)

If you decide to buy a SPOT tracker do please let SPOT know that you're supporting Tip To Tip. They've promised to let us have the purchase price for any units purchased because of the project as a donation to the charities. Outstanding support. There is a subscription element to the service so read the details carefully to make sure you know which service you want.

More fun later.

THANKS SLIM

Is it possible to tell us who has each track/er (or just post an index) on http://www.tricerion.com/TipToTipTrack.php ?

Cheers

Is there a recommended place to purchase one of these?
