Example of GPS

The Global Positioning System is based on data collected from a system of satellites and relayed to users on the basis of their location information. The GPS system is used for everything from surveying to military operations, motoring and maritime navigation. The GPS system is operated by the US government, available to anyone with a GPS receiver. The system has been introduced in 'Blocks', with varying levels of redundancy in the mix to provide contiguous service.

Examples of GPS:

Drivers regularly use GPS receivers as navigational aids.
Commercial shipping is governed by GPS for both administrative, functional and maritime law purposes.
Airliners use GPS references as advanced navigation in conjunction with local controllers.
