      Thanks Luke. Are you suggesting integrating packet radio locations with a user profile e.g. to update the position (and then send messages via normal SMS?) that could be done easily by someone with APRS experience and very basic programming knowledge. Any volunteers you know?

        This is a great idea and we've heard similar suggestions in the past. Bridging GeoChat to query and update a simple and free online database thats easy to edit like google spreadsheets would definitely be a plus. We would like to know how feel they should allow access to share the spreadsheet - e.g. add a GeoChatDocSharing 'user' to your google doc so GeoChat has access would be OK? Obviously we wouldn't ask for your gmail password :)

          Hi Andrew- thx for your feedback. Try clicking on 'save view' on the 'Views' menu in the top right of the map - This will become your new default and you can revert to it with one click after zooming/panning around manually to explore other areas. an option would be to have the zoom change to automatically include all posts in that group so you would naturally get the neighborhood/city effect.
          Would you be willing to take the time to explicitly define the viewport for each group or would you rather GeoChat tried to infer it automatically?

              That's a great idea for an app that can be built with a GeoChat application through the APIs! http://geochathelp.com/doku.php?id=api:documentation

                I think this is a great idea we will see if we can sneak it into an ongoing release, or plan it for the next one (they happen every 6 weeks), thank you

                    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

                      Trying to see what the issue is, and I think I have it - when Iridium sends emails the subject is one thing that is always fixed and the content always goes in the body of the message.

                      From: 8816xxxxxxxx@msg.iridium.com
                      Date: Sat,February 20, 2010 18:44:13 PST
                      To: edjez@xxxxxxx.org
                      Subject: SMS from 8816xxxxxxxx@msg.iridium.com
                      Reply-To: 88xxxxxxxx@msg.iridium.com
                      Body: Hello!

                      this would appear in GeoChat as "SMS from 8816xxxxxxxx@msg.iridium.com" - not very useful!

                        We have released the Java Local gateway, that supports local persistent queues and uses the same base serial protocol library as FrontlineSMS. We have even contributed back to the library so Frontline SMS will benefit!

                        We are starting to do a little bit of work in porting the local gateway to Java, which would be a first step. We also have to see if Frontline would want this to happen, but I suspect they would.

                          Would you like to see those stats in the group properties page? Or are you referring to the the date/time on the message stream on the left? (for the ones on the message stream, maybe a click on the date/time field could toggle it between relative and absolute)

                                    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!
