Global Positioning System Tutorial: All...
Zoom
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a very popular and useful tool, whether you're navigating on a long hike or just driving through an unfamiliar town. A good tutorial that introduces the basics of the technology is found on the Web site of a leading GPS company, Trimble. It starts by describing the underlying concepts of GPS and how it compares to other positioning systems. Then, the principle of satellite triangulation is explained with as little technical jargon as possible. A large section of the tutorial covers differential GPS, a developing technology with profound implications. Lastly, some applications that use GPS are mentioned, and a glossary clarifies a few special terms.
