BrightKite GPX

A simple perl script that will download the list of places a particular user has checked in at with and convert it to a .GPX [] file. HINT: you can use GPSBabel [] to convert a .GPX file to various formats for use with GPS devices or Google Earth [].

Version 1.1 adds a simple database to cache entries, so subsequent calls can add new entries and have a complete history of old entries (even when they’re no longer in the GEO-RSS feed). To reset the database, remove ~/.bkhistory.db.

Version 1.1.1 changes the database to be named ~/.bkhistory.username.db so you can track multiple users.
