GPS and GLONASS Simulation

Simulation of GPS and GLONASS satelites as they orbit the Earth. Two views are available, othogonal from a point in space and perspective from a point on Earth. The geometric dilution of precision (GDOP) is computed and displayed. A help feature explains the operation and controls. Source is available upon request.

Neat display of the orbits of global position satellites. I am not sure how this applet could be used in an educational setting, however.
