3 Big data security analytics techniques

Android App of the Week My Tracks is a GPS tracker app and a must-have for any Android user who wants to record where they have been, how fast they got there and just about any other details of their trips, walks, bike rides and assorted wanderings.

Track your trip - with waypoints (left) and then upload to Google etc (right)

Recorded data can be exported as either GPX, KML, TCX or CSV files but most of us will just use the Send to Google function that automatically uploads journey details to your Google account where it appears in the My Maps folder.

Being a more-or-less official Google app - it’s run by Google staffers in their "20 per cent time", as well as volunteers - My Tracks integrates seamlessly with Google Maps. To borrow from the Cupertino lexicon, it just works.

Scroll right from the main map view and can see all the key trip data such as your average speed and distance covered in chart form. Scroll to the left and you can see distance or time data set against elevation, speed and so forth in graph form.

The app can be set to announce your progress at certain intervals from once a minute minute to every hour so you can keep a track on how far you have gone without actually having to look at your phone.
