Robots need guidance no less than you did when you're in an unfamiliar place, but they need it. Even Maur since they don't have their own eyes, you know, GPS helps them navigate without it. Robots used in the industrial, agricultural and mapping spheres wouldn't be able to do their job. Speaking of mapping four, it's used for survey. Defining boundaries between lands, making maps of sea floors and tracing changes in the shapes of different natural structures can be a challenge. GPS is the perfect technology for creating high accuracy maps, measuring objects and monitoring changes. Five. Volcano observatory make use of it Magma shifts the surface. It flows on with time. GPS receivers rise or sink because of those ships. If you monitor the changes, you can see where exactly magma is flowing. Another thing about volcanoes is ash. It distorts the GPS signal. And using these distortions, scientists can determine how much ash there is in volcanic plumes. There a problem for airplanes, so this monitoring is important to plan a safe route. Six. GPS can help save in danger species. Wildlife migration tracking is very important in the conservation of endangered species. GPS is perfect for this goal because you can get data about the animal's movements remotely through a satellite. Scientists don't need to physically follow animals and check tags. They already use GPS to track the migrations of Wales sea turtles, bald eagles and elephants, to name a few seven. You can use it for treasure hunting. Geo cashing has become a popular hobby since the early 2000. There are digital treasure maps with clues on where to find caches or trinkets.

Baltimore artist Michael Wallace made his city his canvas p a test, a GPS tracker to his bike, installed mapping software and moves in intricate patterns creating digital art. You'd be surprised what detail figures you can create just by riding a bike through the streets and local parks. 10 GPS analyzes the atmosphere. It helps measure the amount of water vapor in the atmosphere that can come out as torrential rains. This way, scientists can forecast downpours and flashlights in the future. It can also help us take the next step in tsunami warnings. GPS is sensitive to changes caused by tsunamis in the electrically charged upper atmosphere. 11. It measures snow levels, too. Scientists can learn how much moisture there is in the soil, or how much snow there is on the surface, using the echoes that bounce off the earth and go to the GPS receiver. This is especially useful in the Arctic and Antarctic, where weather stations are a luxury and measuring the snow buildup is crucial. Monitoring snowfall is also a must in some areas where it's a major source of water 12 it makes weather forecast more accurate. To draw an accurate forecast, you need both observations of the atmosphere and from meteorological stations on the ground. There's hardly enough of the ladder in some parts of the world, especially the oceans and the polar regions. GPS helps fill that gap.

A driverless cars work with the help of GPS. Can you imagine a future where all cars drive themselves? And would you be willing to take a ride? Let me know down in the comments, along with your guess on how many times I said GPS. And if you learn something new today, then give the video alike and share with a friend.
