GPS satellite tracking is an vital tool that is used for map-making, land surveying and navigation. A tracking system is a revolutionary system that allows you to determine the exact location of an individual, vehicle or any other object at regular intervals.The device used for this purpose records all the data and then, transmitted to a centrally located database. Transmission is usually done with the help of cellular, radio or with the help of a satellite modem fixed in the unit. This transmitted data helps in identifying the location of the asset on a map with the help of tracking softwares.
The two main uses of a tracking system of GPS are as an aid to navigation and as a tracker of vehicles for different reasons. GPS tracking works on the triangulation principle in 2D terms. Triangulation is a process which helps to determine the direction or the radial distance of the received signal from different locations.The system is effectively used for vehicle tracking, trailer tracking, for mobile worker applications.
