Tremendous Upside w/ Dave & Niraj

Track your shipments on a google mapInternet
There's a great site called Package Mapper that lets you enter your FedEx, UPS, or USPS tracking number, and then shows you where the package is on a Google Map, with markers for each place it stopped. As if tracking packages weren't fun enough already! And if you think that last statement was sarcastic, it really wasn't.



(Via Google Blogoscoped)

Update: The page has been forced to stop providing UPS tracking as the service they were using no longer offers that and UPS is not being very cooperative. As mentioned on the page: "This site was inspired by SimpleTracker.com, and originally used their RSS feeds. These feeds no longer contain enough information to make a map. The other possible source for UPS tracking information is UPS itself. UPS informed me on January 18 that 'UPS has reviewed your application and has made a decision not to authorize you at this time.' If anyone knows anyone at UPS and cares to lobby on my behalf, I'll add UPS back when I'm authorized to."

      I am curious to anonymous, what the benefits of using rrharmon's site is, compared to packagemapper - which has more functionality and better branding?

            Actually, that is weird. I could swear I had put an update on here. Oh well, here's one now.

            In response to Dave's question: The benefit is it actually works at RRHarmon.com/tracking. I am not able to track ups packages with Google Maps via PackageMapper.com, are you? I would like to add the functionality to track FedEx, USPS and DHL, however, I have not yet found a way. If anyone knows how, please let me know by dropping me a line at www.RRHarmon.com.

              I think dave realized after posting his comment. That second "[Comment Removed]" was posted by him :)

              And to answer 1/3 of your question, USPS provides tracking APIs here: http://www.usps.com/webtools/delivery.htm

                Thank you Niraj. I will begin working on implimenting USPS to www.RRHarmon.com/tracking. =)

                        The interface is very slick...particularly the version without frames.

                        I'm surprised there is more information available than UPS shows on their website. I'm curious, did you have to pay to use their API?
