A lot people got upset about Apple collecting location data on iPads and iPhones. The company just issued an update to the devices’ software in part to tamp down the reaction.

But that data could be as useful to regular people as it is to Apple.

Developers in The New York Times Company Research and Development Lab released a Web-based tool on Thursday that they hope will corral the location data Apple had been collecting and make it available to customers and researchers.

The Times Company’s Research Lab calls the project OpenPaths.cc, and describe it as a tool to “securely store, explore, and donate your iOS location data.”
