How to Read a GPS Mapping System The most common way for a GPS receiver to display your global location is with a plot screen, using a series of waypoints in the area. So that you can track your position logically, you should always set the plot screen directions so that north is up, or towards the top of your device so it reads like a map. The device will allow you to navigate through the GPS map, zooming in and out or even shifting the maps location. The GPS database will allow you to save various waypoints, typically at least one hundred, and label them with brief descriptions. Your waypoints and their names can help plan routes quickly in the future.GPS devices come with a map datum already installed. This is a basic representation of the land formations in the country or area where the unit was designed. GPS units manufactured in the United States are installed with North American map datum, so it is necessary to install additional software if the unit will be used outside the country.
The GPS Database Most of the more costly GPS units come with an integrated GPS database program. The GPS database contains permanent waypoints that help the system recognize your location and guide your travels. A GPS system used during flights, for example, would usually have a GPS database with various airports and other navigational tools that aid in tracking their position. With these waypoints already programmed into the database, you can simply choose your destination and map your route without additional typing or searching. Most GPS mapping devices include a basic GPS database with cities and towns, major streets, and some side roads. Some GPS units have an empty database that the user must create. Global positioning systems first came into use during the 1960s and there are currently at least 24 GPS satellites in orbit. These advancements in GPS technology led to GPS mapping, making it easy to map practically any location. GIC GPS mapping software allows instant access to images of practically any location. Sometimes the resolution and clarity of the satellite image is so good, you can see cars and trees in the image.
Internal cross links between lower level keywords are less common in mind maps and concept maps than they are in association maps, with the branching tree structure tending to take precedence. With concept and mind maps, the relationship of each word to the overarching theme remains paramount. In association maps, however, the link becomes the key, and, as stated, the process of deciding which type of link joins keywords together is a valuable part of ascertaining correct understanding. If you cant link two keywords effectively, you havent understood how they are related to one another! This pairing and linking process allows a jigsaw like approach to the development of the knowledge map, and enables a student always to be working from a point of understanding. Most interestingly, when used to develop a map for a new topic where one is not an expert, it is possible to identify the high level terms which will take precendence at the top of a concept map once an association map has been developed. This is because they are the ones with the most linkages. Development of an association map therefore gives a useful mechanism for allowing students to take on the expert role and develop their own concept maps, even when they are not fully confident in a subject. Drawing any of the three types of maps involves much more active learning than just using ready produced ones in my experience so this is a definite bonus. In summary, all mapping techniques provide a powerful method for organising key ideas within a topic or sub-topic. Mind mapping allows colourful creativity, concept mapping provides the confidence of professional correctness, and association mapping always lets you get started somewhere, but I have a sneaky suspicion, that the real power of visual mapping is the process your brain goes through when you develop those non-verbal links for yourself, so get a pencil and get started!
Some libraries carry the Sanborn maps on microfilm. Look up your property on the various maps and check for any existing house and outbuildings, such as a garage, shed or barn. The house number will be located at the front edge of the lot. Make note of the number as it was not unusual for the house number, or even street name, to change over the years. If you can find your property on a succession of maps, you can see how it changed over time. The fire insurance maps were updated somewhat irregularly, based upon the likelihood that enough had changed to make possible the sale of updated maps. However, when found, they can offer proof of the existence of your home and represent a unique snapshot of the community. Looking at maps can provide you with a unique perspective about the property you are researching, and can often offer new leads in your search for who lived in your home. Whenever you are at a library, government center or historical society, ask about the maps and atlases that are held in their collections.
MapSignal Network mapping or Internet mapping is the study of the physical connectivity of the Internet users trough the map. Network mapping determines the servers and the operating systems run on them of internet-connected networks. It is not to be confused with the remote discovery of which characteristics a computer may possess (operating system, open ports, listening network services, etc), an activity which is called Map Messaging. Map Messaging may be done in a Friend-to-friend network, in which each node connects to the friends on the friends list. This allows for communication with friends of friends and for the building of chatrooms on particular location on map for instant messages with all friends on that network as private or by Gender (SingleG), Personal community (MilkyMate) or international Community (MilkyMap).
