Pencils Down!! Just done with the last commit. Thanks Bart for all the help. Working under you was fun, especially the independence in directing the project. Thanks Joe Rayhawk for the IT assistance. This sure was fun, I never thought I could do sponsored research so early :). I would also like to acknowledge Swadhin Pradhan, an MS student and Prof. Niloy Ganguly, my mentor at IIT Kharagpur, for their guidance and with whom I'll be continuing this project and probably to greater heights.

Implemented code to update the landmarks based on the location update from the user. Now writing a PHP daemon which basically checks the database for any new notifications that can be sent out to an active user using Google Cloud Messaging.

Included code on the server and phone to send and receive push notifications using Google Cloud Messaging. Now, have to write code which sends these notifications automatically if some update occurs with respect to landmarks.
