I am a database programmer, and I want to learn about geospatial pattern matching by using the gps data from my phone.
I would like to install an app that uploads a record about the location of my phone every few seconds - to somewhere - pardon my ignorance as I am not a mobile platform developer. Presumably I can point the uploading process to some sort of a listening process on an Amazon AWS machine, where I can install a database and then analyze the data.
Is there any android application that I can install that would allow me to do this? By using an app, I can ask some friends to do the same so that I can then analyze data from multiple devices.
Whats the best approach for this type of task?
