    Good to get a reply.

    So they need gpx files but would that come from my app or from MP3Car after filtering etc on the data.

    If from me no problem.

    And I agree about his comment on additional data, thats why I'm looking at sign recognition.

    I vote the mp3car server converts the tracks to gpx. We keep the data in the format we want.

    ok - so we convert on our side. Anything else we should do aside before we really launch?

    Some suggestions for the first pass (to hopefully take the best first step we can);
    For the xml submitted:
    * Change sequential numbering to a relative timestamp (makes it alot easier to validate-potentially useful for other things down the road)
    * Add hdop and vdop to the submitted data (again-for error filtering)
    Do we have this?

    * On upload everything should be dumped to an sql database for storage
    * A separate thread then processes all of the data in the queue...checking data validity and filtering as necessary to ensure an accurate submission...and finally packing it up and dumping it to OSM
    Do we need to do this immediately? Goce is working on something else at the moment and Sean is tied up too.

    Unless there's a good reason for changing the seqno I'm leaving as is for the issues of security raised (and laziness )

    Uptake seems to be non existant. Nobody has given me any feedback on whether they've tried my app let alone had problems with it. I'm also the only one who's uploaded anything.

    However I'm moving forward with sign recognition although at the moment this is looking like a dead duck.

    That would be .Net Compact framework....which probably falls in my department unless there are other c#/VB.net dev's out there willing to do it (*crosses fingers*).

    I don't want this to come out the wrong way but its a lot of work for one persons use..... is there other interest?

    Has the ftp site been closed down. Just trying to help someone install this and noticed i can't connect anymore.

    I assume the whole project is dead.
