In a nutshell, Global Positioning System (GPS) captures the vast circumference of the world and minimizes its size by enabling students to pinpoint target-specific areas. Today, GPS is used in the transportation industry to track everything from jumbo jets to 18-wheelers; in agriculture to accurately plant, fertilize, and harvest crops; for personal use in such activities as hiking, fishing, and boating; and, it is also used to help locate and track some of our precious natural resources. After completing this curriculum, students have a greater awareness of the world in which we live as well as a working knowledge of GPS through the use of actual GPS software and hardware.
