That's the best it goes: http://img74.imageshack.us/img74/5641/ipuei5.png

I was thinking in somehow locking the position with the digitalized paper
map - ftp://geoftp.ibge.gov.br/MME2007/CE/IPU.pdf - maybe using the roads or
the coordinates.

I don't know if gpsTrackmaker would be an option, since I run Linux, but
I'll take a look if it runs on Wine.

Thanks.
