- In case your device has a built-in GPS but still returns your location inaccurately
- In case you have to set a location of a project and you’re not in the site, but you can identify it from the map.
Things to know:
- Project Locator uses the integration of Google Maps.
- Google Maps uses GPS coordinates system to identify yours and other identifiable locations’ global addresses on the world map.
- GPS coordinates is composed of the longitude and latitude lines that when intersect will form a point on the grid or to put it simply “a location on the world map”.
