I am not sure if I will complete this before Oct 3 deadline but I have made progress ! I have switched to Dweet.io to upload the latitude and longitude. If all goes well and the weather is nice I will be able to test my tracker today or tomorrow. I have cloned OpenXC dashboard from FreeBoard to use for this project. More info about OpenXC can be found here. The license can be found here. I have added Outside Weather info and used Dweet.io to upload my longitude and latitude calculations to Google Maps rather than DropBox. I changed the Google Map Alternative -test to Google Map . I also used their excellent speedometer to visualize wind speed. My goal is lean and mean coding and keeping it simple as possible.

Below is my revised Node-Red flow:

My first trial of the Dashboard:
