Hi from Sydney, Australia.
My introduction after finding your excellent forum yesterday.
I work as a project manager for our national postal corporation and arrived at mapping through the following journey:
riding mountain bike in Sydney's [numerous] national parks --> needing to remember good trails --> logged trails on GPS --> joined trail data into 2-3 hour rides --> urged to share rides on web site --> decided wise to accompany GPS data with map (ie who would rely only on a battery-powered digital device to guide in unknown bush area?).
I used a Garmin Foretrex 101 for the initial trail logging and re-logged the rides with Thales Mobile Mapper receiver and [DGPS] beacon into Mobile Mapper Office. After scanning and georeferencing the [government] 1:25,000 local map, added the GPS-data ride, exported from Mobile Mapper Office into TatukGIS Editor to trace/add the graphics I want the mountain biker [.pdf] map to contain.
I'm really enjoying the journey, but don't have a map yet to show.
I look forward to reading your posts and, being New Year's Eve - Happy 2007!
Hello & Happy 2007
