    Using PDA & GPS in education

    Hi All,

    The head has asked us to investigate something he saw sometime back and liked the look of. All the info we have is:

    • It used PDAs with GPS
    • The group apparantly went onto the school field and simulated a "pack of lions in the savanna"

    He doesn't know what software was used, and we haven't been able to get a more detailed decription about the whole thing.

    I've downloaded and started playing with mscape, but I can't get it to do anything useful and can't find any resources or forums to help. I have set up a mediascape and it tests okay on the computer and works okay on the PDA when you simulate your position, but I can't get it to work on location alone.

    If anyone has any info or ideas on how I can make this work, I'd be very grateful.

    We use GPSed, it tracks you in realtime (or in chosen time intervels) and displays your location on a map, you can even assign photos taken at specific locations you can also upload the track and map onto twitter or feacebook to share

    heres an example of one of my personal "tracks"
