    Cool Presenting: LocationAPITools

    I have developed a bunch of convenient classes that simplify using the J2ME JRS-179 Location API, especially for making a location tracker.
    Tracks can be stored in kml (cfr. Google Earth & Google Maps), csv or txt format.

    The library was tested on a Nokia N95 8GB (S60 3rd Ed. FP1, Symbian 9.2).

    Because I think this code could be useful for other people I decided to release it under the Apache 2.0 open source license. The project is hosted at Google Code: http://code.google.com/p/locationapitools

    Glad you like it.
    There's is no demo yet. I need to strip down my program (which uses this library but is not released with it) to make a small demo midlet. I will do this for v1.0. Hopefully by the end of next week.

    Update: version 1.0.0

    Download it here: http://code.google.com/p/locationapi...downloads/list

    • new demo application (a simple GPS tracker that produces KML files)
    • many bugfixes
    • many small new features

    General info:
    LocationAPITools library, version 1.0.0
    WWW: http://code.google.com/p/locationapitools
    	A collection of classes that simplify the development of location-aware mobile
    	applications using the JSR-179 Location API on the J2ME (CLDC/MIDP) platform,
    	e.g. on GPS-equipped smartphones.
    	Matthias Stevens (Sony CSL Paris / Vrije Universiteit Brussel)
     	Contact: matthias.stevens@gmail.com
    	The primary use case is a location tracker that stores tracks in KML
    	(cfr. Google Earth/Maps), CSV or plain text format.
    	Package "com.sony.csl.j2me.locationapitools.demo" contains a MIDlet class that
    	demonstrates how LocationAPITools can be used to create simple GPS tracker
    	application that produces KML files. For examples of more advanced uses of this
    	library refer to the NoiseTube project (see below, look for "NoiseTube MobileNoiseTagger").
    	The code is known to be working on the following Symbian OS-based platforms:
    	  * S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1 (Symbian OS 9.2), e.g.: Nokia N95 and Nokia N95 8GB smartphones
    	  * S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2 (Symbian OS 9.3) 
    	Although this is untested, the code should also work on other (non-Symbian/S60)
    	J2ME CLDC/MIDP platforms/devices, as long as the JSR-179 Location API is supported
    	on the platform/device in question.
    	This library was developed within the scope of the NoiseTube project at
    	Sony Computer Science Laboratory (CSL) Paris, for more information please refer to:

    could be handy, some option to upload the info directly to a server might even be worth considering
