Package Mapper – track your shipments on google maps

Category: Examples, Ruby, Showcase

package mapper

Map out the route your packages take on their way to their destination with Package Mapper. Its built on Ruby on Rails, and you can see use of scriptaculous effects in many spots. It looks pretty close to the single page model Joe described a while ago.

From the front page:

Package Mapper shows you a map of your FedEx, UPS, USPS package routes. Enter a carrier and a tracking number to see your package’s progress plotted on the map. Sign in to enter a list of packages and see their current locations on a table or map.

[…] PackageMapper, found via Ajaxian, is pretty cool. It sadly likes to say it “just woke up” all the time, something that I don’t need to explain (if you start using it, you’ll see), but when it works it’s great. I have started leaving my packages on there even though they’re delivered, as I can still watch how things from all over the USA (and sometimes Canada) end up at my house. […]
