Open source GPS Library in J2ME

From Geneva University, a class to :

Convert WGS84 datum (gps) coordinates into topographics coordinates of another datum and inversely.
Class to translate and transform latitude and longitude coordinates (WGS84) to Northing (Coordinates Y) and Easting (Coordinates X) and inversely.
The translation model is done by the Molodensky Model.

The autors are : Praplan Christophe, Velen Stephane

That class should makes much easier the programming of J2ME applications that need to get coordinates or other informations from a Bluetooth GPS receiver.

Army finished, now future projects

in the swiss armyEvery Swiss man under 34 have to make 3 weeks in army (it’s much more complex in fact). I just finished mine, it was very very long and totally useless but at least now it’s over … for this year.

Now I finally found an interesting topics for my master work : GPS and Flash Lite. As I’m going to work on it all this year be sure that I’ll publish a lot of information on it.
I guess the biggest problem will be to pass data from Bluetooth-GPS to Flash Lite, as Flash Lite doesn’t support Bluetooth by now.

Flash Lite – XML, my updated visit card

Demo of the carte de visite
Since Flash Lite 2.0 the use of XML is now possible. So I wanted to update my old CDV made in Flash Lite 1.1. There is no special difficulties the only trouble I encounter was the loading of the XML itself. XML can only be loaded in a none absolute link. The only way I founded to overpass it was to load the data in a txt file (ex : myXml.txt). Then with a loadVariablesNum loaded it and finally transform it again in a XML.
Surely it exist a nicer solution but I haven’t found it yet. The good point of this method is that you can let your Flash Application on the Mobile Phone but the data will always be fresh and relevant. Somethings approching the Rich Mobile Application (?).
