GPS for Hiking - an introduction
"GPS" stands for Global
Positioning System and allows precise orientation and navigation
worldwide by use of satelllite
All you need is a portable receiver, the size of a cellular phone.
The device does not only help you to find your routes. It also writes
track of your itinerary, calculates distances, speed and time elapsed to
the next target. This way, hikers keep a set of "Signposts in a
a precison of +-10 m.
Routes, Tracks and Waypoints are stored
in the internal memory. USB or serial interfaces allow upload and download
of data from PCs. Almost all GPS programmes allow to use a
mapfile as a background.
From many thousands
of GPS waypoints needed to design our hiking-maps,
we selected the routes for clients, perfectly in accordance to
our maps and guidebook texts.
