Graham Lee and Bill Gidley are riding from Lands End to John O’Groats, hoping to raise money for The Macular Disease Society and The Freeplay Foundation To help their families and sponsors keep track of them our Technical Solutions Group (Pre-sales to you and me) have equipped them with an array of mobile technology to keep track of their progress.

They are running a windows mobile device and bluetooth GPS with a custom application that uploads their position every few seconds via GPRS to one of our servers. The data is pushed into ArcSDE and then served out Via ArcIMS. You can follow their progress and sponsor them here

The online map is a bit Where0.2 but this is what their current progress looks like when tracked in a 3D Viewer


Raster Map Data overlayed on the terrain, with their current track in the bottom left corner.
