NBC Report on GPS and Accuracy of Spatial Data
NBC Nightly News did a report this Sunday (May 4, 2008) on GPS devices in cars. The reports focus was on the flaws in the system, specifically the accuracy of the data. It mentioned in passing a few examples of how errors in the system resulted in accidents - including an accident involving a bus of which I was not aware. I encourage you to visit the program's website if you have not seen the report as it shows what the general public knows - and does't know - about the technology.
