Perspective and GIS: What is GPS?

GPS – Geographic Positioning System

Maps in Perspective are produced and created by installing a GPS device on a vehicle that runs on the streets nationwide. The GPS device accepts signals and records the exact location of the vehicle every 5 to 10 meter distance traveled.

PERSPECTIVE uses only WGS 84 mapping standard. WGS 84 is used by modern GPS equipment which makes it possible for the data coming from standard handheld GPS equipment to be directly imported into the system.
