AntiMap Log is a smart phone utility application for ‘recording’ your own data.
Whether your out snowboarding, skiing, mountain biking, driving, running, or whatever your into, AntiMap Log is a DIY solution for gathering real-time stats with your phone.
The indexed data can then be used in conjunction with any of the free AntiMap post analysis applications (or your own creations) to visualize your every move.
The application uses the GPS and Compass sensors on your phone to extract and store the following data: latitude, longitude, compass direction, speed (kph), distance (kms), time (milliseconds), and finally an input field for optional points of interest.
The application is free and Open Source, with Processing (Android) and Openframeworks (iPhone) source code provided in hope that users can learn from and find interesting ways to visualise their data.
AntiMap Simple is a HTML5/ProcessingJS demo that visualises data from the AntiMap Log mobile application. Circles are used to visualise the plotted data. The color of each circle is mapped to the compass data (0˚ = black, 360˚ = white), and the size of each circle is mapped to the speed data (bigger circles = faster).
The same data used in this demo, was used in the AntiMap Video snowboarding application. You can see from the visualisation, during heelside turns (left) the colours are a lot whiter/brighter than toeside turns (right). The sharper/more obvious colour changes indicate either sudden turns or spins (eg. the few black rings right in the centre).

Hey, Adam, you should give this a whirl.
