This week in GPS — February 1st, 2014

This week in GPS is a weekly link roundup of (mostly) GPS related odds and ends, from GPS Tracklog and other places around the Web. To get a few of the biggest stories as they break, follow me on Twitter. This week’s lead video is a humorous one from Garmin.

From GPS Tracklog

Our posts from the past week:

Coordinates are somewhat ambiguous if you associate them with a precision (which few do). Flat pictures of a non flat object (surely we’ll agree the planet isn’t flat…) are subject to distortion.

All the news that doesn’t fit
