What : GPS, GPX, KML, Google Earth - Where am I?  How did I get here?
Who  : Rob Anderson
Date : Mon 9 July 2012
Time : 7 PM to 9 PM
Where: Room 301, Morse Hall, UNH, Durham, NH

  For those who don't know, Rob is a motorcycle nut ^W enthusiast.
This means he periodically goes on long trips on a bike for no reason.
 When he does, he brings a GPS, which logs his track in GPX format.
Rob has done the homework needed to take that GPX log off his GPS
gadget and convert that data into KML format -- the format used by
Google Maps and Earth.  That lets Rob plot his course on a map, or
even generate a 3D fly-through movie.  Tonight he'll talk about how he
did it.
