AntiMap Log for iPhone

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.
Recorded data is saved to a CSV file at 30 FPS with filenames matching the date & time they were created. Eg: ‘150811_1230_08.csv’, was created on the 15th August 2011, at 12:30pm and 8 seconds. For Android users, files can be retrieved from the ‘AntiMap’ folder on the SD card. For iPhone users, files can be retrieved from your device in iTunes/Apps/AntiMap Log Documents (just under the ‘File Sharing’ heading).
Approximately 10 minutes of record time equates to 1mb of data on your device. To keep things tidy, I recommend deleting the files from your device once you’ve copied them to your computer.
Sample row of data from a CSV file: “-39.245163, 175.561, 320, 2.7769525, 218904, Ruapehu trail”. These 6 values shape the foundation for all current and future AntiMap desktop/online applications.
HOW TO USE
Once you have the application installed on your device, there are a few things you need to know if you want accurate results generated for your data.
