This project uses a minimum amount of hardware to create a GPS tracking device. The Pi acts as a WiFi access point, allowing cell phones and computers to communicate with it directly. Configuration and downloading of files takes place over a web browser. A GPS is used to retrieve tracking data. Data is saved in GeoJSON format, but can be downloaded in GeoJSON, KML, or GPX format.
