Running and GIS

Running is a great way to get exercise, enjoy the outdoors, and apply GPS and GIS technology! When I run outdoors I like to bring along my Garmin GPS watch. It's great during the run because it uses the GPS signal to calculate your speed and give you real-time feedback on your pace. After the run you plug it into your computer and it will download the information from your run and display it in a Web GIS application. There are many features of the web application but you can even download the coordinate data into a file and view and edit it in your favorite GIS application such as ArcGIS.
