Founder Dennis Crowley discusses the company’s business plans, explaining that while
check-ins have proven to be a boon for businesses, he envisions building targeting
tools on top of the data to help businesses understand their customers. “It's
Google Analytics, but for brick and mortar businesses,” explains Crowley.
Precise satellite-based navigation and location system originally developed for U.S. military use. GPS is a fleet of more than 24 communications satellites that transmit signals globally around the clock. With a GPS receiver, one can quickly and accurately determine the latitude, the longitude, and in most cases the altitude of a point on or above Earth's surface. A single GPS receiver can find its own position in seconds from GPS satellite signals to an accuracy of one metre; accuracy within one centimetre can be achieved with sophisticated military-specification receivers. This capability has reduced the cost of acquiring spatial data for making maps while increasing cartographic accuracy. Other applications include measuring the movement of polar ice sheets or even finding the best automobile route between given points.
