There is a huge need online for more articles and content about global positioning systems. Consumers and citizens want to know more about how GPS works. They want to know if they should have the extra option for a GPS system and/or mapping technologies in their car when they buy it. You can buy global positioning system for just about anything these days. In fact, I have one for my bicycle, it’s a 10 Speed road bike for riding long distances, and that little GPS unit comes in handy.
Hikers also have GPS systems so they don’t end up getting lost or walking around in circles, which is easy to do, when you get lost. Many cell phones also have GPS systems; and retailers love this idea because the GPS system can alert their customers when they get near one of their stores. Imagine how much businesses this could bring a company like Starbucks?
In fact, consumers love to read articles about things like this. In the last couple years, I’ve written over 20 articles on this topic and I’ve been amazed how many e-zines, magazines, trade journals, websites, and blogs have asked me for permission to reprint them. It makes me feel happy that they like my articles, and believe they are a good enough quality for their publications or for online content.
Still, in reading the articles I don’t feel the quality is so superb that it’s anything to write home about. Rather, what I think is happening is that there is such a need and desire for GPS articles online, that it just happens to be one of those niches which goes unfulfilled.
If you are an online article writer, I recommend that you write articles on this topic, that is if you know anything about it, because there is a huge demand out there that remains unspoken for. Please consider all this.
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is the fully functional Global Navigational Satellite System which will help in determining the location, speed/direction and time with the assistance of 24 medium earth orbit satellites. Known as a useful tool for mapmaking, land surveying, commerce, and scientific uses, GPS is now a widely used navigation aid world wide. It is also used for various applications including study of earth.
The current GPS is divided into three major segments called space segment (SS), control segment (CS), and user segment (US).It is the navigation message broadcasted by GPS satellites that provides the time-of-day, GPS week number and satellite health information.
The history of GPS traces back to the early 1940’s when the World War II was on full swing. But it was the launching of Sputnik in 1957 by Soviet Union that paved for later developments in this field. A team of U.S. scientists under Dr. Richard B. Kershner were involved in research to monitor the movements of the satellite Sputnik, which later resulted in the technological development of GPS.
There are chances of the speed of GPS getting affected by the inconsistencies of atmospheric conditions. But this can be improved with the correction of these errors.
In the advanced modern world, GPS is mainly used in various daily life equipments including mobile phones. These devices help in making mobile phones more sophisticated and technologically advanced. With the mobile phones connected with GPS, the user will find it no hard to understand the location, climatic conditions and other geographical details.
Nowadays, GPS devices are connected with cars, helping the drivers in getting the exact knowledge of the geography, climate and details ensuring safe driving at strange areas.
