    gps logging program

    i have been looking for cheap/free gps logging program to get started logging, and came across this little program:

    http://www.aerog.com/software.shtml

    it is free to try for 30 days, but costs $30 after that.

    so far, i have been very impressed with it, it is a very feature packed program, and allows you to modify almost all aspects of what data to save, and how to log the data. the data is typically saved as *.gps, but can be opened in notepad to view the lines.

    the info from the site:

    GPS Logger v3.02.11*



    Currently used in Europe, Asia, and the USA - GPS Logger is a simple NMEA sentence logger specifically designed for vehicle position recording and scientific GPS position recording applications.



    User selectable NMEA sentences are saved in time-stamped packets allowing later analysis, interpretation, interpolation, geographic positional plots, or GPS-track re-creation. Different text file formats are menu-selectable.

    Additional features include easy-to-read UTC and local time display and PC-clock to GPS synchronization.

    Please read the "readme.txt" bundled in the GPS Logger download for the latest update information.



    GPS Logger Features (v3.x)

    Multiple serial-port capability (COM1-COM8)
    Logging via a primary, filterable port and monitoring/logging of an auxiliary second port.
    User-defined filters: Have a special sounder sentence you want to grab? Add it to your own database with v3.x
    Independent clocks: One clock refers to UTC time delivered by the GPS, the other refers to either the local time derived by GPS time or local system time.
    Many start-up automation options
    Creates a Maptech .trk Track file log while logging data (optional)
    Creates a UTM-coordinate log file, deriving UTM Coordinates from NMEA lat/lon coordinates on-the-fly (optional)
    Basic Log filename can be specified via a command-line argument
    Starting with v3.02.9 GPSLogger supports up to com port 50
    ...and many more features

    To be honest I just wrote my own that collects raw NMEA sentences in a text file. Took me all of about 10 minutes in c#. Once they come up with what data the format should be stored as pre-uploading to the server I'm sure some people will come out with programs here.

    depending on the requirements, would you mind sharing that program?

    GPS logging is very simple.

    It all depends on what you want to do with it.

    Have it stored locally, sent to a website or something else.

    Here's a simple GPS logger. All it does is listen to the specified COM port at the specified baud rate and output it to a file. I use this for logging my tracks so I can run them through a parsing program later to weed out the points when I don't have a fix or invalid returns etc.
