  Wes will discuss using a GPS receiver within Linux and some of the
  tools that exist for managing waypoints an other GPS-related
  information.  He'll also talk about his own open-source 'GeoQO'
  project, which is a general extensible waypoint database system that
  specializes in management of Geocaching waypoints (an overview of what
  Geocaching is will be given as well).  GeoQO has many powerful features
  such as Google Earth 'density' plot generation, automatic language
  translation, a extensive scripting interface, and automatic GUI-screen
  creation from its scripting interface.
