Displaying Recorded Routes With Actual Received GPS Data
AndroidApps
27 May 2016 0:41

Some users of my Android app named My Place(Location Tracker) asked me "Why you don't show recorded routes in the similar way of Google's Navigation?"


No, I don't want. If I am going to do so, I need to use Google's Navigator to consist of a route point by point before displaying it on the map in "My Place". Unfortunately, the Navigator isn't always able to find a shortest way, because many pavements aren't included in Google Maps.

Looking back the above captured photo, it shows I need to take 58 mins to go to the destination, but there is a pavement which I can take to the destination for less than 30mins.

Therefore, showing the actual received GPS data to display a recorded route is a better way.

Although GPS has deviations, sometimes it can be greater than 500 meters, you still can see an actually movement from a recorded route.

If you compare the following two captured photos and you will find that linking up most coherent points, you are able to review your past movement.



Therefore, you can follow the recorded route to go back to the started location.

The captured photo below shows another example that Google's Navigator directed me to use a longer route. The red marks are actual GPS data received by "My Place" and the blue-dotted-route is Navigator suggested one.



This kind of incidents also occurred while I was traveling in Osaka, Japan. Reading this blog entry  "Visiting Osaka City Hall and Cruise" for details.

Actually, you can still use Google's Navigation while you are using "My Place". You just need to tap on any one point as destination and the Navigator icon will appear at the down right corner on the map, clicking on the Navigation icon and Navigator will receive the point sending from "My Place" as destination.  



Indeed, I still trust Google's Navigator for suggesting me how to go to a destination by transportation.

"My Place" is available at Google Play Store for free download.
