    Hello everyone, I'm thinking of doing a project on Location Based Advertising(For Public Transport) but I'm a complete beginner at practical/projects. I have the basic idea of what i need to do but i really don't know how to do it.

    I'm doing this for a minor project so I'm currently making only a smaller component of a bigger project so i can later add more functionality and use it as my major project.

    -What do i need for a GPS - module or receiver : is there a difference?
    -What is it's output - {Latitude, Longitude}?
    -Can i keep a table in the programming that maps the {lat, long} -> {location name}
    -If not, how do i do it?

    THis is correct that u need a GPS reciver/module (both are same). But from the GPS reciever u will get only details of the current location. I want to that how u will toggle between different ads at different laocation?

    GPS reciever recives data in the form of NMEA (National Marine Electronics Association ) commands. These cammands have all the deatils like long., latt. etc.

    $PGRMM,WGS 84*06

    this is NMEA commands.
