Let me know what you find.
For some examples of maps I've generated from Tiger data, see:
My plans were to squeeze this data onto a 40 MB IDE disk in the
Frontpath Progear I recently got NetBSD squeezed onto, and to hook a
GPS in via a USB dongle. I have generated a few maps on the Progear,
and while it's a little slow, it's not TOO bad. I'd not want to run
it on batteries very long, but the intent is to have a car computer
anyway, so it won't be long between chargers.
The data, for what it's worth, won't reasonably fit on a 40 GB disk in
its current form. I need to write some sort of file format that isn't
SQL, but still has a good way to search for data within a 2d area.
