**DISCONTINUED** == Overview == BigBrotherGPS ( http://bk.gnarf.org/creativity/bigbrothergps/ ) is an Open Source app for regularily reporting location to a server. == BigBrotherWebUI (this project ) == ... is serverside code for the app. An improved receiver using MySQL, and a webUI with OpenStreetMap. This allows for: * open source, * self hosted, * non-google, * private, location reporting/sharing. == Uses == * Outdated android phones can be put to use again. * One can track cars, boats, motorbikes, caravans and other large items with a powersource. * One can track people, animals. == Limitations == * One needs a SIM-card for data traffic (or rely on accessable, wifi networks). * The battery of the phone will limit your uptime if you don't have a powersource. == Other possibilities == * Protocol is open and very basic, so people with skills can implement apps for other phones. A bash client for linux is included. == Current status == Screenshot of beta: https://github.com/ways/BigBrotherGPSweb/blob/master/screenshot.png?raw=true https://github.com/ways/BigBrotherGPSweb/blob/master/screenshot2.png?raw=true
