GPS tracking is a brilliant use of technology. As part of a satellite tracking system, small devices can be used for many purposes from tracking someone to tracking a plane.
GPS tracking devices send a constant stream of coordinates through a network of earth-orbiting satellites back to a central computer, which translates the data and presents it to the end user.
End users can often view this information on map overlays such as Google Earth. You can also check out here to get more information about GPS tracking devices.
