Positioning System at Sury...
in the 1970's
by the U.S. Department of Defense for military means, the Global
Positioning System (GPS), permitting the user to pinpoint the geographic
location of an object in real-time, is available for use by civilians
in a version less precise than that used by the military.
Sury we use the GPS for a variety of activities, whether it be for
individuals who want to use it during their hikes, in their car,
or our main activity which is to measure agricultural plots.
information generated by the GPS is based on measurements
of distance between a receptor and satellites. A receptor is strategically
placed in an agricultural plot and using special software designed
for managing agricultural plots, communication is had with the satellite
and readings are taken. These readings give the exact dimensions
of the plot. The readings can help to better organise plantings,
forestings, location of landmarks (boundary markers, utility poles,
...) in order to comply with legislation. As well, GPS can help
give you better precision about your plot of land than can local
official and military registries.
