GPS Coordinates and GPS Clock


In this project, we have shown how to interface a GPS neo6M module with Arduino nano, 20x4 LCD display. GPS (global positioning system) coordinates are usually expressed as the combination of latitude and longitude. The GPS coordinates data for longitude, latitude and GPS clock is displayed on the LCD.


GPS Coordinates

GPS coordinates are formed by two components that are a latitude , giving the north-south position, and a longitude, giving the east-west position. Use this map to convert any address in its GPS coordinates. You can also find the location of any GPS coordinates, and geocode its address if available.

clock-Time

  • Local time is the date/time reported by your PC (as seen by your web browser). If your PC clock is accurate to a second then the other time scales displayed above will also be accurate to within one second.

  • UTC, Coordinated Universal Time, popularly known as GMT (Greenwich Mean Time), or Zulu time. Local time differs from UTC by the number of hours of your timezone.

  • GPS clock, Global Positioning System time, is the atomic time scale implemented by the atomic clocks in the GPS ground control stations and the GPS satellites themselves. GPS time was zero at 0h 6-Jan-1980 and since it is not perturbed by leap seconds GPS is now ahead of UTC by 18 seconds.

  • Loran-C, Long Range Navigation time, is an atomic time scale implemented by the atomic clocks in Loran-C chain transmitter sites. Loran time was zero at 0h 1-Jan-1958 and since it is not perturbed by leap seconds it is now ahead of UTC by 27 seconds.

  • TAI, Temps Atomique International, is the international atomic time scale based on a continuous counting of the SI second. TAI is currently ahead of UTC by 37 seconds. TAI is always ahead of GPS by 19 seconds.
