On our way to Kolkata from New Delhi , we got a GPS device to try and map the train route. Though it was uncomfortable to keep the GPS unit adjacent to windows using hand. Eventually succeeded in doing so . the GPS unit recorded 908 km out of 1500 km of journey . that was because of unavailability of signal for long time.
On arrival to freemap.in workshop we discovered that the Card failed to record data and we had only 250km of track thats in being recorded in the units 8MB memory.
Anyways at least we tried.
The Workshop then started ( may be missed some part beacuse we arrived a little late) with people and their GPS unit roaming around saltlake . Again me , Susmit , Arindam recorded some more tracks.
some pics .
Our major advantage was we met Mikel and Schuyler at Delhi. so able to discuss over a lot of possibilities .
