Ski Map from Les Deux Alpes

And again I get hit by G+'s limit of only being able to add one (type of) thing to each post...

Here is the map from GPSVisualizer.com, I REALLY don't think I got that fast...

What you can do with Google Location History

Is the linked, at EveryTrail, via http://www.gpsvisualizer.com....

Not sure how accurate it is in the end, as Eveytrail speed seems to disagree with both the Deux Alpes App., and the GPSVisualizer map... Intriguingly you can add pics and stuff to Everytrail, so I may use add more to the trip...

Skiing Holiday in Les Deux Alpes, France, March 2014

A fantastic time was had by all..

This is a pure dump of all photos/videos taken at the time, and replaces an earlier album, which duplicates had crept in to.

All taken with my Nexus 4. Some auto enhanced by Google Plus - mainly to create panoramas...

An awful lot of photos/vids... I will share a highlights "package" later on...

More GLH stuff

Well I took my weeks skiing and put into GPSVisualizer: http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/display/20140410082313-05138-map.html (which may not be there for long - I've got the code so may host elsewhere).

This maps speed by colours, which implies I (or my phone) got up to around 126 km/h on the 28th of March (final day), but the SAME trip data plugged into EveryTrail seems to think top speed was around 36 mph (see http://www.everytrail.com/view_trip.php?trip_id=2732758&code=ade59d148eb23ba8877192cadff1e0f6 for a cool trip map, including photos and where /when they were taken)

Google Location History & Skiing

Just checked out my GLH and found this, fairly accurate representation of a Day's Skiing in Les Deux Alpes. On this day my Les 2 Alpes app tells me I hit a max speed of 109Km/h (~ 67 mph), I'd love to know where I hit this sort of speed, and indeed what my average downhill speed was...

But this lead me to some thoughts about GLH...

1) For those of us with multiple devices, with GLH turned on how to we tell location by device - if, as I do, you leave a device at home most days, but want location history enabled for that device (in case it gets lost/stolen) then  it confuses the heck out of location history (and therefore maximum speed (e.g. one minute I was in Guilford the next I was home in Croydon top speed of 1800 mph!))

2) Can one share location history?

Hmm?

Introduction
Have two lovely, but annoying, frustrating, intelligent, belligerent, clever, silly, studious, easily bored, rapt, hooked on reading, physical young boys, and a lovely other half.

Fell into IT after University, much to my disappointment, and 19 years later still at it.

Love reading, particularly Science Fiction. Fascinated by technology, and the way it changes our lives, usually for the better.

Enjoy board and co-operative/social games (e.g. Pictionary, Articulate, Charades, etc...)
