Map your tweets with Creepy

Since early 2010, I’ve visited about 10 states and a few different cities in Texas. Do you find it creepy that people can tell that about me from my twitter account? Apparently the author of the program named “Creepy” does based on his name for the app that generated the picture above. Personally, I find it pretty cool that I can map out all the places from which I’ve shared information on twitter. If you’ve attended my Mapping Mashups in […]

New SharePoint Google Map Resources

At EndUserSharePoint.com, Lee Reed has shared a 4 minute video demonstrating how to add a map set at a fixed location very quickly using only your browser. Quick, easy, simple and open to even the newest SharePoint Site user.   Separately, Sandy Jacalow’s done the same example, but written out with screenshots.   I love easy examples to build off of. If you find these two above interesting, you may want to read Parts 1 and 2 in my SharePoint […]

GPISync your MotionX Track

I’ve been using MotionX Lite on my iPhone while I drive around neighborhoods looking at houses. Today, I found out that you can share tracks by email. Combine that with the GPISync code from Google Code downloads and you could add the latitude and longitude EXIF data to photos from a non GPS enabled camera. I’m going to try it out and let you see the results.   For the time being check out Motion X in the App Store […]

Virtual Earth API 6.2 with SharePoint

Virtual Earth API Update As I promised at my SharePoint Saturday Presentation in Boston, I’ve updated my previous example integrating SharePoint with the Virtual Earth SDK. The original example was based on the SharePoint Designer Team Blog post, How to Integrate Virtual Earth Maps with a SharePoint List, from almost 2 years ago. Greg Chan’s original post is still great, and I recommend you give a read to see how he did the magic. However, there is at least one […]
