I am, as you will see, truly insane. Warning: I'm not sure if this condition is contagious. It may be. We'll find out together.


My requirements (or: why I do this)

Much of what I need was actually the reason I started creating geoqo in the first place. I wanted to do things I doubt anything could handle (and if it did, I'm sure it didn't run natively on linux which I use the most).

Output Places

One of the issues is that I have multiple places where my caching data goes to:

  • My Garmin Etrex Vista (B/W)
    • limit of 1000 waypoints (ARG!!!)
    • I don't want anything in it but geocaches because of the limited memory size
  • My TomTom Palm Application
    • this requires each Point of Interest to be in individual files
    • I have a lot of memory in this, so I want everything in it (including waymarking data points)
  • My CacheMate database
    • This needs everything but I separate out different regions into different files
  • My GeoNiche program
    • I rarely use it, but when I'm with people without a GPS I do.
    • Also can take everything on my palm card, but I do it in different regions to keep the "current" memory footprint small.

Input Sources

  • geocaches
  • extra waypoints for geocaches (parking, trail heads, multi-steps)
  • waymarking (wifi hot spots alone is worth it)
  • geodining? (soon)
  • my own data points (home, etc)
