This paper describes GPS Workstation, a general purpose navigation software which requires a low-cost GPS connected to the computer. It provides an integrated display of positioning data along with satellite positions, their signal strengths and data quality parameters. The software can be used for static point averaging of GPS data to get more precise positioning and real-time mapping of roads and tracks. It supports output of data in keyhole markup language (KML) as well as other formats for visualization of acquired data on Google Earth and geographic information systems. It can also be used to determine geo-referencing errors in Google Earth imagery for an area and can compensate the error by applying a constant X, Y shift. The software is available for distribution under the free software license.
