Record your movements with AntiMap

Posted to Self-surveillance  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

AntiMap is an open source toolset that lets you record movements with your iPhone or Android phone. Originally developed as a way for snowboarders to record their movements and play the data back like a video game, the toolset was generalized for all outdoor activities.

Simply collect data with your mobile, and then use one of the simple visualizations to see your data or do whatever else you want with it. It’s your data. You get latitude, longitude, compass direction, speed, distance, and time, along with an optional input field to mark significant spots.

Here’s a demo of the app in action:

With the new year coming up, this could be perfect for those who want to pull a Nicholas Felton.
