GPS Averager

GPS Averager

Latitude and longitude readings from civilian GPS are often a little inaccurate. This app allows you to gather more precise coordinates of a location. For a couple of examples, this can be useful for adding features to OpenStreetMap or placing a geocache.

To use the app, you can start at the location you want to measure, press "Start", walk away from the location for say 30', then turn around and walk back to the location. Then continue past the location for the same distance, then return to the location of interest.

The Iron Yard ATL Lunch App

The Iron Yard ATL Lunch App

This app maps out many good lunch spots in downtown Atlanta. Kyle Van Pelt came up with the idea, and we crowdsourced the students' favorite places to eat or drink. Map marker sizes vary based on popularity. The app also pulls information from Foursquare so you can see which places are currently open, what kind of food they serve, and other info.

Five O'Clock

Five O'Clock

We all have a rough day every once in a while and we are tempted to grab a drink but it's only 10am...well it's Five O'Clock somewhere! Five O'Clock is a fun little app that provides you with a location in the world where it is currently 5pm or later. Use this app as your excuse for why you have a glass of wine in your hand at 10am. Please use Five O'Clock responsibly!
