A good way to get involved in the OpenStreetMap project is to upload GPS track logs (also named GPS traces). Recorded by your GPS device, the typical track is a record of your location every second, or every meter. The collected data can be displayed as a background of thin lines or little dots within the map editor. These lines and dots can then be used to help you add map features (such as roads and footpaths), similar to tracing from aerial imagery. GPS Satellite NASA art-iif.jpg

Thinking of getting a GPS Receiver to add data to OSM? These reviews are here to help. If you think about other mapping related hardware too, look at the Hardware Guide.

If you buy a GPS unit via any of our retail partners then up to 10% of the purchase price will be donated to OpenStreetMap. This helps to help keep our servers running. See the Shop for details.

The correct term is GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System), though the most common system GPS have become the name most people use (if you go to your local shop and ask for a GNSS, the clerk will probably not know what you mean).

Legend for the summary tables

Units are listed alphabetically. PDA-based GPS receivers can be found under the PDA devices heading.

Type can be:

PDA
the GNSS is included in a PDA.
Data Logger
the GNSS includes an automatic geographic position logging system with extraction possibility to another electronic device
GPS Receiver
the GPS receiver can simply deliver a geographic position for another device or on a simple screen without navigation facility. Glonass is also available as a backup/augmentation in some GPS Receivers, but at the moment not available as standalone handheld units.
Navigator
the GNSS includes a screen with maps and software for navigation assistance
Mobile Phone
the GPS is included in a mobile phone device
Professional GNSS
the GNSS is designated for massive or accurate geographic survey. Many such devices also combines the various GNSS technologies, such as combined GPS/Glonass receivers and evaluate the different carrier signals.

Storage can be:

Internal Compact Flash (CF) MemoryStick (MS) MultiMedia (MMC) Secure Digital (SD) Smart Media (SM) xD-Picture Card (XD) None
Specify the capacity Compact Flash MS, MS Pro, or M2 MMC, or MMC Mobile SD Card, SD Mini, or SD Micro SM Card XD card none

Common GPS chipsets are:

  • SiRFStar I, II, IIe, IIe/LP, IIt, III
  • SiRFLoc
  • SiRFXTrac
  • Nemerix
  • RFMD
  • MTK
  • Sony Solution
  • u-Nav + iTrax 3rd Gen
  • Atmel Antaris 4l
  • u-blox
  • Ublox
  • Xemics
  • HP6515 AGPS
  • Skytraq Venus 5
  • Skytraq Venus 6

Methods of DGPS correction / Augmentation can be SBAS (WAAS, EGNOS,MSAS), Beacon, NTRIP, Direct IP, IALA are free services, with various coverage. Spotbeam, Inmarsat, Veripos, HP/XP are semiglobal services but requires licenses and are not likely in handheld units.

Corrections can be transmitted as propritary formats, single station corrections, or 'RTCM' format correction list. Some receivers might use RTCM as identifier for corrections, but the source than is one of the systems mentioned above.

Alternative forms of GNSS includes: Glonass, the future Galileo and COMPASS.

AGPS is an abreviation for Assisted GPS, and is usually an enhancement for GPS-enabled cell phones. It allows receivers quicker startup time, as well as continuing to give positions with weak or missing satellite data.

Connectivity can be achieved by:
