Some of these GPS applications include waze, google maps, and for military they use NovAtel. These GPS applications help to locate certain buildings, areas, or even people if necssary.
The idea GPS was first thought of back in October 4th, 1957 where scientists found that satellites could be tracked from down on Earth by receivers on the ground and seeing those recievers distances from satellites above. in 1959 The Navy built TRANSIT which was a satellite navigation system that was used to locate submarines, which in turn gave a pathway for GPS systems and applications today. In 1963 The Aerospace Corporation set the GPS concept used in today's world. Military launched NAVSTAR, a GPS satellite system. By 1995 the GPS was complete.
Today GPS applications are used in many ways but locating positions, military use, and gathering accurate and timely information.
