Exploration Guides

We're all explorers. You just need the right guide.

Spring is Officially Here

I was hiking yesterday at Brighton State Recreation Area and picked up my first tick of the year.  Hiked 15 miles then, as I got back in my car, I wiped off my legs and felt an odd lump on the back of my left knee.  Yep, it was a tick.  He hadn’t attached yet, so I just took it off.  Should have gotten a picture of him, but just tossed it aside before I remembered to do it.  Oh well.

A month or so The leaves have been exploding out of the trees the last week or two, too.  Undergrowth is sprouting, too.  Snakes came out a month ago, and turtles a few weeks ago, too.  SPRING!

Volunteer Testers Needed

If you’ve been watching our EGMaps page, anxiously waiting for your chance to build your own, free, GPS-enabled Android app using our EGMaps system, now’s your chance.  We’re looking for a small number of testers to receive an early edition of our API to test our our API and instructions.  You don’t need to be a programmer (that’s the whole point of the EGMaps API!), but you do need to be fairly computer-friendly, and probably good with a spreadsheet.  You’ll also need a web site where you have access to upload your own files (just about any web site you can edit will work).

If you’d like to be a tester, please email darrin (at) ExplorationGuides.com.  I have a set of sample data, but if you have a set of your own data, as well, that’d be an even better test.  In your email, let use know what kind of computer your have and what operating system.  If you also have some data of your own that you’d like to work with, also let us know a bit about that.
