- Free lecture pack - A Guide To Satellite Navigation
This was designed by the IESSG and Surrey Space Centre at the University of Surrey, with EPSRC funding, as part of their Partnerships for Public Engagement scheme. The pack comprises a PowerPoint Slide Show and supporting notes. It provides a comprehensive introduction to Satellite Navigation for general consumption, with which a non-expert should be able to give an informative presentation on satellite navigation to their peers.The pack can be freely downloaded (self-extracting zip, 29.5Mb).
- Fun with GPS by Donald Cooke
Millions of people love their GPS (global positioning system) devices but don't know they can use this amazing technology to do more--much more--than simply calculate location. The dozens of illustrated examples in this lively guide show how GPS devices can be attached to just about anything (or anyone), including dogsleds, race cars, hot-air balloons, sailboats, windsurfers, ski racers, hockey players, even animals. Each example includes maps and photographs to inspire hobbyists, airline passengers, athletes, animal lovers, drivers, teachers, and students to track and map their activities. The book also discusses ways to incorporate GPS technology in the classroom to reinforce science, math, and geography curricula, provide groundwork for project-based learning, and show students that their schoolwork is important and relevant.
