Golf Goes Global ... Positioning

Hope Island Golf Club in Australia is the first in that country and nearly first in the world to install GPS units in all of their golf carts. [via iSeekGolf] Not only that, the units have large screens that display in simulated 3D what a particular hole looks like, from the point of view of where the cart is currently positioned.

These displays give players an opportunity to make a better choice of golf club. Now all they have to do is offer RFID-enabled golf balls that an RFID reader will help you find, when you slice your shot anyways.

GeoPlotting Journal

This weblog/journal deals with a variety of topics relating to geographical data, as well as GIS (Geographical Information Systems) software and GPS devices. Posting is currently suspended, until a new version of this journal has been developed.

About Me
I'm a geek/ philosopher/ composer/ artist/ cook/ photographer/ web programmer/ consultant/ blah-blah-blah who is also a published writer and author. I worked with GIS systems and cartographic projections for seven years. I've had a love of maps and globes ever since my father gave me an atlas when I was in grade school. This is one of several blogs that I write.
