s60-locatr.py - display Flickr photos based on your current location
Phone > My own > Python > Options > Run script > s60-locatr.py
locatr is a Series 60 Python application to display Flickr photos based
on your current location (using a GPS device).
HOW IT WORKS
locatr will try to connect to a Bluetooth enabled GPS device and ask it
for its current location.
From there is will build a bounding box and query Flickr for recent
photos taken there.
Once it has a list of photos it will display them on your phone's
BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE!!
As of version 0.2 locatr is also able to determine your location by
passing your device's cell tower information to the ZoneTag celltower
web service and then on through Yahoo's geocoder API.
This feature is fully functional but due to circumstances requires some
up-front legwork by users. See below for details.
Show me photos!
Ask the GPS device and Flickr for a fresh set of coordinates and photos,
This menu item is also bound to the left arrow key.
Advance to the next photo in the list.
This menu item is also bound to the right arrow key.
View the current photo on the Flickr website.
This menu item is also bound to the up arrow key.
Pair with GPS device
Configure a new GPS device for collecting location data.
Enable verbose mode
Display debugging and progress information.
Disable verbose mode
Do not display debugging and progress information.
In order to use the ZoneTag (ZT) API support, you will need to register
with ZT for application and user tokens. You should know now that this
will be painful for two reasons :
* ZT does not yet have a handy web interface for registering tokens.
They are working on it but in the meantime you will need to contact
the nice ZT people by email and request tokens.
* The tokens are long and composed of gibberish and you will need to
enter them (in locatr) by hand. Once the ZT people have decided how
they will handle registrations.
Series 60 Python
Will this work with Python for Series60 3 / Symbian 9 ? Probably not but
I haven't really poked at it very much yet.
PDIS Python extensions
(Specifically the XML/XPath-y bits)
A Bluetooth enabled GPS device
As seen on TV!
This is part of the standard locatr distribution. You will need to copy
it your phone "by hand" and install as a Python library.
