GPS Deer Blog
Blog e GPS tracking de animais, no caso Deers. Aqui vemos o cruzamento de localização e blogs no dia a dia do animal, usando telefones celulares com GPS e SMS (via Pasta&Vinegar):

Turns out he had collared a deer they named “Thor” with a GPS and cellphone with SMS capability. They are studying deers living in suburban areas in Pennsylvania.

You must have GE installed.] .
The system is totally automated using free services. His post goes into detail on how this was all accomplished. Siberian is using some tools by Valery Hronusov – who has developed and posted dozens of cool geo hacks for Google Earth (see his global rainfall example). Valery came up with the idea to let the deer blog his coordinates as well. (…).”
