[ Phylogenetics | Keys | Bibliographic | R | GPS ]
The result of an online post to an R
mailing list, asking abou tthe simplest way in R/S to recreate data
manipulations that are simple in JMP.
I have a Garmin eTrex Summit, which
has seen me all around SE Asia. Until recently, I had to copy
waypoints by hand, since Garmin’s MapSource is a W$indows app. But I
just discovered gpspoint
(thanks Thomas Schank!), which compiles cleanly on my Mac OS 10.2.
With my Keyspan USB-to-Serial
(USA-28X B), and an RS-422-to-RS-232 converter, and Garmin’s serial
cable (whew!), my Mac will talk to the eTrex (setenv GPSPORT “/dev/tty.USA28X1913P1.1”). Also, Guillaume Cottenceau
wrote an excellent perl-script
to convert Long-Lat to UTM (based on Johan Montagnat’s work). I’ve written a
small script (gpspoint2utm) to stitch their
- Phylocom: tools
for analysis of phylogenetic community structure
building and using a supertree of the vascular plants
- Newick-format tree manipulation
- A Mac OS X build of Dolph Schluter’s ANCML
Now all I need to do is write a import/export parser for my TOPO map
of California (they finally made a Mac version of the browser and a
PC-to-Mac converter), and I’ll be set. Watch this space.
Here’s a quick Google maps coordinate lookup.
