GPS

As we get ready for the PKAP season, one of my jobs is to arrange for some of our larger equipment needs. It looks like this year we may have lots of interesting stuff, such as the Trimble R8, some Trimble GeoXh handhelds, a GPR system,a 3D scanner, and a panoramic system. As I struggle to figure out how I am going to get everything over to Cyprus in my carryon, I keep my eye out for new equipment reviews and articles and I happened to see "Now You Can Track Colleagues and Students on Your Laptop" on College 2.0 on the Chronicle of Higher Education website. The article talked about the new technologies, such as Latitude and Loopt, that allow users to track other people based on information received from their phone or wireless device. As the article suggests, this use of technology has many positives and negatives. I have to admit my first thought was that this would be a good way to keep track of students in Cyprus – if it worked overseas.
