6 The Global Positioning System and the Average Person

  • Les Johnson
Part of the Springer Praxis Books book series (PRAXIS)


If you need help navigating in a strange city, you are likely to use your Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver. For under $200, you may purchase a fully functional GPS receiver that will help you get safely from Point A to Point B. They are now a standard option in many rental cars. Have you bought a house or some land recently? Chances are that a survey was performed using GPS's ability to provide highly accurate position knowledge as a part of the process.
