Does geoLib exist?

Post by livfoss » Sun Nov 01, 2020 6:42 pm

Scanning old posts it seems there was a library "geoLib" for handling GPS readings etc, but so far I haven't found it, nor indeed a description of what it did. On my own I have done a lot of work on GPS, such as implementing the distance between two points on the Earth's surface, creating a GPX file, etc all based on the GPS-reading functions of iOS, but I am having a lot of problems with accuracy and anomalous readings and I hope that such a library might help with these issues. If I get no response to this message, I'll ask specific GPS-related questions.

BTW I am not into GitHub and rather hope not to have to be, so I was hoping the library was simply an LC library like so many others.

If the OS interface LC uses to get info from the GPS is inaccurate, what would a library do to correct that?
