Having spent a week in Melbourne I have found GPS apps on my IPhone and Ipad mini invaluable. The first two apps loaded (courtesy of Mike Pearson) were Tram Tracker and Public Transport applications. Where do I want to go? and use my current location (accurate to a few meters) was all the input required. Need a chemist? just enter “chemist, St Kilda” and problem solved.
Fantastic… I started playing with GPS coordinates in the SQL database students were building last year… with a view to displaying via a Google map on their web pages. I have the code and general process but we never got round to it. This will be a priority this year.
