Conclusion

This project has been designed to introduce you to the application and use of GPS and how IoT can be used for it. You will have run multiple commands and wrote a small python script that will configure the Raspberry Pi to be able to run as a tracker and find your location. GPS is an extremely powerful tool, and this project is just scratching the surface of what you can achieve with it, there are so many different projects you can build around this.
