Transcript: Global Positioning Systems A global positioning system, or a GPS, helps you get to any location quick and easy It is a navigational system that will work anywhere around the globe A GPS works by getting signals and necessary information from satellites These satellites are also known as Navstars Along with signals, the GPS recieves important messages from the satellites A GPS Satellite These messages let the GPS know: the time the signals were sent orbital information; the location of all the other satellites in orbit The GPS satellites use atomic clocks so they, and the GPS, can keep time. Each satellite weighs approximately 4000 pounds!!! A GPS needs to be connected to at least four satellites in order to tell the time and direction. Because of satellite information, not only can the GPS pinpoint it's own location, but locations all around the world. GPS Most of the GPS satellites are 12,500 miles above the earth. About 30 GPS satellites are orbiting the earth at this very moment There are exactly six different orbits of satellites. The GPS satellites were launched from the 1980's to 1990's, so they are pretty old. Because the satellites are so worn, they will need to be replaced soon. This will be a major project. A Global Positioning System works in all weather, all day and night The average GPS size is 3-6 inches wide, 2-4 inches long It can tell the approximate latitude, longitude, and altitude. Was invented in the 1970's Most receivers can spot the location within about 10 meters Very accurate GPS's are able to find the location within one centimeter. These more accurate GPS's are used for people in the military, farmers, and other professionals. The GPS was originally used for the military, so the ones they use are very high tech as well as super expensive. There are many different brands of global positioning systems... One of the more popular GPS brands is the Magellan GPS's. The TomTom GPS's are also as well known. Another well-known GPS brand is the Garmin Gps All GPS's, this one included, come with a screen to show you where to go. Some GPS's are used for mounting on the dash of your vehicle. Others are portable so you can use them while you do things such as walking a dog. This GPS is portable. This gps is also a portable gps, only it is meant for mounting in your vehicle. Most GPS's have the option of changing the language. The previous GPS was set in Japanese. There are three main categories of portable gps's... 1. The basic GPS- Price: $100 to $200 2. The traffic optional GPS- Price: $150-$400 3. The Traffic ready GPS- (reports traffic) Price: $70-$200 You can also access a GPS through your cell phone for about $10 a month. Some other kinds include: Built in system- GPS built into your car GPS software- you load into your computer, more detailed maps Almost all GPS's are easy to install... So throw away your atlas and go buy a GPS. You will be able to actually get somewhere without getting lost, saving you scads of time! THE END!!!! Most portable systems run on batteries, so it's convenient whenever you're on the go. There are about 30 GPS satellites orbiting the earth at this very moment. Hey! What's up? hi The price for the average GPS reciever ranges from $100 to $1000 The estimated cost for a project this big will be around $5.8 billion. That's a lot of cash! Fun Facts
Transcript: GPS PRESENTATION Fall 2017 AUGUST 24TH AUGUST 24TH On August 24th, we were given the GPS assignment and wouldnt you have it, right outside the door was a perfect opportuinity for an activity as there was a free student planner giveaway! AUGUST 29TH AUGUST 29TH On August 29th I went to Club Rush, which was a free event in U-102! This event gave students a chance interact with different clubs they would possibly be interested in joining, as well as groups of students who were interested in forming their own new clubs as well. SEPTEMBER 21ST SEPTEMBER 21ST On September 1st, I met with my advisor Kaci Carter who helped me plan my next semester and walked me through the FAFSA process so I could be eligible for grants and schoalships next semester! OCTOBER 6TH OCTOBER 6TH The Stress Management online workshop was very beneficial as stress is something that everyone deals with. For me, it helped me realize that there are better ways to cope with stress, rather than letting it build up with addressing the issue. OCTOBER 20TH OCTOBER 20TH On October 20th, I completed one of the Time Management online workshops. This workshop is beneficial as it helped me learn how to address the many distractions we have in life, as well as learn how to assort my priorities so I finish my daily goals in a timely manner without stessing. On October 24th, I took a break in between classes as an opportunity to go to the Student Math Center. I had just taken an Algebra Unit Test that I did not go as well as expected and used their knowledge to help me review the test so I understood what I had done incorrectly. OCTOBER 24TH OCTOBER 24TH November 8th November 8th This was my 3rd time visiting Dr Swanson! My Philosophy class has definitely been the most insightful class I've taken yet.

Transcript: GPS or Global Positioning System What is it? a space-based satellite navigation system that provides location and time information in all weather, anywhere on or near the Earth, where there is an unobstructed line of sight to four or more GPS satellites. GPS was created and realized by the U.S. Department of Defense This piece of technology was created when a group of 12 military officers held a meeting to discuss a Defense Navigation Satellite System which would later evolve into the same GPS used by you in your car. Many countries rushed to produce the GPS as people realized the value of this new navigational tool. however it would be the department of defense in the USA that would first produce a satellite based navigation tool. the first time navigation was put to use 24 satellites where used. GPS is a great breakthrough that has however created a new medium to render map reading obsolete. people no longer need a map and compass to get around and do not need to ask for directions. any given place in the world has coordinates given to you in terms you will easily comprehend. this technology has impacted society in the scence that we can be found and find any location on this planet without struggle. we no longer have to map or think about where we are going, we can be told in advance about every turn we must take, the time we will arrive at our destination, and the rate of speed we are traveling. Negative Side effects of GPS Dependence – People are forgetting how to use normal maps so we are losing that skill and ability to study them. As well sometimes the GPS can make a mistake too if new roads have been built and you don’t have updated maps. GPS’s require a signal of some sort. Therefore if you are in a dead space (area with no signal) your SOL. GPS’s run on battery so at any given time there can be a malfunction which could cause trouble depending on the situation. Privacy – Some people can pinpoint your location with a GPS enabled phone which could be scary. Safety – if one is distracted by the GPS too much, they could cause an accident for not paying attention to the road. How has the family changed because of this technology? GPS’s affect families for the most part positively. We can drive with confidence knowing that we are heading in the right direction. It causes less stress knowing your E.T.A (estimated time of arrival). Arrive on time to places more often with a GPS. We are dependent on it but its pros outweigh its cons therefore it’s ok. How would each Sociology, Anthropology, and Psychology view the impact of this technology? Anthropology: would view the impact of technology on how people in society adjust and react to it. They would find changes and patterns that are occurring with GPS being used by people. Sociology: Sociologists would study this technology and find the social problems it provides. As well they would study how society adapts to the GPS with GPS’s now being built in into cars, phones and other devices rather than a separate GPS system alone. Psychology: Psychologists would study this technology and see how it effect’s the human brain. They would see the patterns of stress it causes and it what area the stress comes from. They would also compare the difference on how the brain functions by reading information straight from a map and the information being told to them by an automated talker. Thank you
