I used the Smart Communications Location Based Service (LBS) to get the latitude/longitude of a trip I took today. I then plotted it using this Google Maps API map of Bulacan, Nueva Ecija and Pampanga.
The mobile service is not open to the public, though. Would this be a good service to offer as a value added service?
On the parts of the Philippine map in high resolution – the brown parts covering parts of Bulacan and Pampanga – it’s obvious that the LBS is inaccurate. A GPS receiver could be useful in getting correct geo info. Where can I buy one locally? I don’t need mapping capability, just the ability to save readings and give them names.
