Hi Zhijie,
Thank you for your interest in applying!  Our ideas page is just that -
ideas, so please add yours too.
When you come to apply it would be good for you to point out what your
proposal will do differently to existing tools, and explain if you propose
to build on an existing tool or start from scratch.

We also appreciate early applications so that we can discuss them and you
can update your proposal if necessary before the final deadline.

Please ask if you need any help.

Hi all,

I'm a student from National University of Singapore, and interested in
applying GSoC'11. I checked the idea list of last year and found one:
Develop a Simple Mapping Tool for Mobile Phones

Many mobile phones contain cameras, microphones and GPS receivers so it is
possible to take geotagged pictures and audio clips and record GPX tracks.
Some software exists that does this, but there is not a simple application
that makes these tasks easy, 'one click' activities as they tend to be
included as ad-ons to more complex applications.
Can it be re-proposed in this year? This idea is a bit similar to part of my
current research work, i.e., mapping videos on the map. I think it would be
a nice application that when we upload a video to youtube or a photo to
flickr from the mobile phones, we also upload the GPS tracks and the
permanent link of the photo/video to OSM. Afterwards, OSM can add a
phone/video layer to show the multimedia. How do you think about this?
