Fixing Melbourne Trams app

MelbourneTramsiPhoneAppFixOur app is coming out real soon, and one of the things we have spend a lot of time working on is fixing the GPS locations. Since the Tram people like to make it hard, and have stopped releasing a file with all the locations of the stops, we had to compromise. To do this we used a revere GPS lookup function, that wasn’t too good at finding trams stops. So we have to go through and massage all the data. Yup, over 1,000 stops. Here is what it looks like when not fixed., rather than follow Flemington Rd road, the stops jump all over the place.
