- IonEarth has switched to Google as their map source this year. This may or may not be a win -- Bing has better place name (rivers, hills, etc.) labeling in remote areas. I tend to like to have a topo map included as one of the layers and actually spend more time with that showing than with other formats, when it's available
- The individual locations all show '0 seconds' since the last update. We know that can't be true all the time, right? Understanding where someone really is is usually a function of knowing where they were at a given point in time and knowing how long ago it was. For example, if a tracker point is about 10 minutes old it's possible that someone's traveled about a mile since then, more or less. There's a young man who's way, way behind the rest of the pack according to the tracker and I can't tell if the issue is that his location hasn't updated or that that's really where his tracker is right now.
- Related: there's no history for individual mushers.
- This made me laugh:
I don't know what really happened here but the best guess is that it looks like a landowner right-of-way issue. We get those, even in Alaska.
