The purpose of this research was to find the orthogonal projection in relation to Global Positioning System (GPS). The question presented are listed as follows: 1. What is orthogonal projection? 2. How can orthogonal projection be related to the GPS. 3. Relate the mathematic behind orthogonal projection to the GPS. An orthographic projection is a process of prediction in which an object is characterized or surface mapped using parallel lines to project its shape onto a plane. In this research an orthographic projection method was used to project three-dimensional plane in two measurements. When working with geographic data like maps, GPS tracks, and administrative borders, it’s common to need to integrate information from several sources. Regrettably, the method in which geographic location is linked to coordinate values in such sources might differ significantly amongst datasets. This is due to the fact that there is no one-size-fits-all solution for projecting three-dimensional global data onto a flat plane suitable for data visualization. Orthographic projection is a type of equal projection, where all the projection lines are symmetrical to the projection plane, bringing about each plane of the scene showing up in relative change on the review surface. The orthographic projection method was used to arrange the framework and the information on a level surface. Numerical figures were utilized to change over to arrange the framework to utilize the GPS. A projection is a linear algebra concept that helps us understand many of the mathematical operations we perform on high-dimensional data. These projections help to navigate the coordinates of the GPS. A projection is a linear algebra notion that aids in the comprehension of many of the mathematical operations we perform on high-dimensional data. Projection in Mercator- Conformal or orthomorphic projections maintain shape and points in small areas of the guide, allowing separation and course estimation for nearby foci. An orthomorphic projection, such as the well-known Mercator projection, is concerned with points: on a Mercator globe guide, the lines of scope and longitude intersect at appropriate places, just as they do on the Earth.
