GPS.gov Website Gets a Make-Over

The National Space-Based PNT Coordination Office (NCO) and U.S. Coast Guard Navigation Center (NAVCEN) have announced a major upgrade to the official U.S. government GPS website GPS.gov, including new content and features.

Originally launched in 2006, the website had mainly focused on GPS applications, with much of the content dating from the first year of operation. Now the site also offers a broader palette of resources, including pull-down menus for policy and funding, multimedia, and GPS user support.

“With this upgrade, we have expanded the amount of information provided, and we’ve tailored its presentation for various target audiences — news media, Congress, etc.,” says Steve Sidorek, NCO legislative affairs advisor. “We are also introducing feature stories addressing current events, with the idea that we will start updating the site on a periodic basis.”
