|Lost is not a pleasant word. When
was the last time you found yourself in an unfamiliar corner of the town
and tried to find your way out? However, with the assistance of the
Global Positioning System (GPS), never lost could be true to all of us
in near future.
GPS is a space-based radio navigation system. It overcomes the limitations of current navigation systems and provides users with highly accurate position and time informations. Locating forest fire, surveying the land, monitoring animal migration, controlling air traffics, or organizing emergency rescue, GPS plays valuable role in Canadian society.
