Whenever we think of GPS, we automatically associate this with an in car mappng and routing system. A GPS is much more than that and most consumers in North America are not fully aware of its true capabilities yet. A GPS is much more than just finding your way around or locating important landmarks.

Equipped with the right software and data, the GPS coordinates can convey a wealth of information about a given location. This information can be used for:

  • Education in the form of historical data like what occurred or existed in the past for a given location
  • Surveillance or tracking of individuals and/or property
  • The scientific use like the study of earthquakes and tectonic plate movement
  • Electronic Tour Guides
  • Tracking of pets and the elderly
  • Farming to record areas of high insect or weed infestation and areas of poor soil conditions.
  • Astronomy to provide a reference star chart based on a given location and to pinpoint stellar objects.
  • Sports recreation like fishing to determine the best spots to fish based on the certain fish type or weather conditions.
