Google Maps helps facilitate Greenland expedition..

The "Google Maps hacks" continue. The company Guardian Mobility has outfitted two people and a team of dogs who are skiing around Greenland on and exploration of the country with a wireless data unit. Guardian Mobility, says:

She has been outfitted with one of our Tracer units which has a GPS receiver and send data to our backoffice through Globalstars Low-earth orbit satellite network. We're tracking her progress using Google Maps and using MyGMaps. to map multiple points onto Google Map's satellite imagery.
