GPS (Global Positioning System) a brief introduction.


1024px-GPS-IIRM.jpg


What is GPS ??
        The Global Positioning System  (GPS), also known as Navstar, is a global navigation satellite system (GNSS) that provides location and time information in all weather conditions, anywhere on or near the Earth where there is an unobstructed line of sight to four or more GPS satellites. The GPS system operates independently of any telephonic or internet reception, though these technologies can enhance the usefulness of the GPS positioning information. The GPS system provides critical positioning capabilities to military, civil, and commercial users around the world. The United States government created the system, maintains it, and makes it freely accessible to anyone with a GPS receiver.

Usage!!

        GPS is considered a dual use technology, meaning it has significant military and civilan applications. GPS has become a widely deployed and useful tool for commerce, scientific uses, tracking, and survelliance. GPS's accurate time facilities everyday activities such as banking, mobile phone operations etc.
        GPS surveying is an ideal way to survey positions in a short interval thus saves time and money. GPS is used in most of the mapping and surveying tasks. These tasks can be mapping of highways, power lines, crops, soil types, rivers etc. Police and detectives use GPS to track location of their targets. They smartly fit a small GPS tracker to the criminal’s car or vehicle and track their locations as seen in the movies. GPS helps them to come up with useful evidences. GPS has always been used for mining minerals and crucial materials. Miners use GPS tracking devices to track minerals in different levels of earth surfaces. At the same time it is also used by military for defense purposes.

Some others GPS  

GLONASS –Russia's global navigation system. Fully operational worldwide.
Galileo – a global system being developed by the European Union and other partner countries, planned to be operational by 2016 (and fully deployed by 2020)
Beidou – People's Republic of China's Regional system, currently limited to Asia and the West Pacific, global coverage planned to be operational by 2020
IRNSS (NAVIC) – India's regional navigation system, covering India and Northern Indian Ocean
QZSS – Japanese regional system covering Asia and Oceania


GPS and mobile!!


        The relationship of Gps and mobile devices in todays world have integrated useful. Application like Maps can be use to locate your position through GPS. With the help of it we can explore the unknown lands without the fear of not being able to return. The photos taken through mobile camera now can be added with your location. The use of Gps in mobile phone is increasing day by day. From games to real time services like cabs services all this uses Gps. The recent launch game Pokemon go also uses this GPS through user phone to play this game. Game developers are also looking forward into this direction.

From this devices you can find out the detailed information about the covered distance, time, heart rate, body temperature and many other useful data with just one touch of a finger. Smart technology responds to your movements through the Gps which is put into this devices.

Which types of GPS is use in Xiaomi phone??

Xiaomi use four GPS namely GPS, GLONASS, BEIDOU, AGPS

Conclusion

      As technology continues to evolve, GPS tracking devices will continue to decrease in size, increase in accuracy, and be utilized by even more businesses as a common, yet powerful tool. GPS tracking systems represent an already profitable business opportunity that will only expand as demand continues to rise. As satellite mapping and computer imagery continue to advance, so will the capabilities and applications for GPS tracking software.
