Precise positing

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013

Precise positing – the ability to know your location from a latitude – longitude, or X-Y location, on the earth and how high above mean sea level your feet are firmly planted on the ground to within centimeters. Is this type of information becoming a wave of the future or am I just a geek about it? When I go to the gym in the morning, I am strapped with my fitbit and my Polar Heart Rate monitor which provide me with information about my speed, distance, x-y-z location, and heart rate while I train. Not to mention, providing me with an avenue to publish my activity via social media to participate in competitions with friends. J This type of information can be plotted on Google Earth to see where I have traversed, although, sadly enough when I workout at the gym my traverse is a “dot” as I barely change in x and y or z (height) for that matter, when on a treadmill. On the other hand, when I am outside, my walk changes in all three dimensions which can be displayed quite nicely in Google.
