Fun with GPS
Millions of people love their global positioning system (GPS) devices but do not know how they can use this amazing technology to do much more than simply calculate a location. The dozens of illustrated examples in Fun with GPS show how GPS devices can be attached to just about anything or anyone. Each example includes maps and photographs that will inspire hobbyists, airline passengers, athletes, animal lovers, drivers, teachers, and students to track and map their activities. This book also discusses ways to incorporate GPS technology in the classroom to reinforce science, math, and geography curricula, and provide groundwork for project-based learning.
