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.
