Caching in on GPS

Webb, Robert M. (2002) Caching in on GPS. BEEline, July, p. 3.

Abstract

Now that GPS technology is mature and GPS receivers are small, cheap, and easy to use – students from the School of Design and Built Environment are actively involved in the high-tech sport of Geocaching. Geocaching.com is a new 21st century recreation and adventure game that came about as a result of the improving three-dimensional accuracy of Global Positioning System (GPS) devices.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
