Samal as seen from GPS


At various stops during my biking trip to Samal, I would take a GPS reading using my Nokia N79 to track my progress. Here's a short clip of my progress, animated using GIMP. Not to the proper timescale, of course.

  4. Standard map on the Nokia phone. Ask me how when we meet next time. I am planning to write a longer and more in-depth article on this for EYP.
