Continuous tracking is an important milestone for location based services. Inspired by Yahoo's FireEagle project, I've started IceCondor. Its opensource and aims to manage a continual stream of automated lat/long updates.

The existing implementation of IceCondor is a rails app + the GeoRuby gem + PostGIS.
The rails app will take a unique id, a lat/long, and store it in the database using the OpenGIS standard for geometry storage.
The search method will be implemented next.
IceCondor will be a repository for location records from various applications including an Android location app.
