GeoChat Feedback Forum

Welcome to the InSTEDD GeoChat official feedback forum. Do you have an idea? Do you recognize a good idea when you see one?
We want to hear from you!
(This is a forum to post suggestions – to ask questions, talk with our team and other users please join us here http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/geochatusers/ Thank you!)

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Give feedback when the user updates their location

    I sent a text message "At Mountain View, CA" and nothing happened.

    Then I typed "At Mountain View, CA" into the Map's chat box and clicked Send and nothing happened.

    Could the UI provide some feedback that shows my currently parsed location, and do something noticeable to confirm when that location is updated?

    • integrating geochat & mobile phone gps

      when posting new coordinates by sms it is not always possible to have the right address. e.g. in case of floodings the name of the street maybe it is not available. As in the new phones - android or iphone - it is possible to have the exact location through gps it could be possible to develop a very simple application that "copies" the lat and long into a new sms.

        We are very aware of this, obviously. The first step – in the ongoing release in september- is to finalize the APIs (http and SMS) that will simplify developing these sort of apps.
        There is now an open source app for android at smslocation.googlecode.com and one for iPhone at iengage.googlephone.com

      • Send structured information to the group

        Allow users to send structured information to the group - either manually following a template or as a means for a program (such as JavaROSA) to submit information. Obviously this information should be exportable in some format such as CSV, XML or synchronized with a database (MySQL, Access, or Excel) owned by the user.

          We have started developing this integrating with an early version of the SeenTags system that learns over time how to parse the data better. Check out the ‘dataset’ tab under group properties!

        • Build an Android Client

          Build a client for android that interacts with the GPS and lets me get back basic user information (Like iEngage for the iPhone http://code.google.com/p/iengage/)
