[HOT] GeoBucket Accuracy

Hello to all,

The GeoBucket team has uploaded a new version of the android GeoBucket
mobile application to the Google Play store at
https://play.google.com/store/search?q=geobucket&c=apps; an added feature
is you can adjust the accuracy in meters of the coordinates saved by the
app using a slider. Any coordinates with accuracy that do not fit within
the set range are ignored and not saved by the app. After testing, we have
found that GPS accuracies of between 5 and 20 meters are sufficient to
provide precise GPS traces and points on the GeoBucket website (

The app also uploads additional Well Known Text (.wkt) formated strings
which include Multilines and Multipoints; this ensures that more
coordinates can be bunched together in a single upload and has also
shortened upload times especially where large numbers of coordinate entries
have been saved in the "Bucket".

Kindly let us know how your experience goes with the application and how we
can improve.
