Geo WPS for Mac1.2

26 July 2021

Track your geographic position using OS X wi-fi (formerly Mac WPS).

What is Geo WPS for Mac

Geo WPS allows to track your geographic position using macOS wi-fi geo-tracking and other available hardware inside and connected to your Mac to detect your coordinate in the best precise way via Apple core location.

Geo WPS is an alternative to Apple map, it uses the well know OpenLayers map databases. The map is updated live from the internet (almost all the world is mapped to a very high level) with possibility to zoom up to 18 levels.

It can work with any Mac with Wi-fi turned on (to detect correct location) and an available internet connection (using any kind of connection, not necessarily via wi-fi, which is required to be ON just to detect the presence of wi-fi stations around and query a world database to understand position)

In some way Geo WPS reassemble GPS features without a GPS (it can works only in area with mapped wi-fi signals, typically urban areas ) even when the sky is not visible (in GPS system visibility of sky is mandatory) It works perfectly in closed environments if it detects mapped wi-fi stations around.

The map can be shown with the zoom level you prefer and maintaining this zoom level during position upgrade.

The map can scroll maintaining your position at the window center when you are moving (providing you are net connected, to calculate your position and show the current location map).

  • The map is interactive and user can drag scroll and drag zoom.
  • Uses the standard Apple core location library
  • Continuously updates your position showing it on a map
  • Doesn't requires an established wi-fi connection, just airport turned ON to detects wi-fi around
  • It can work using your wireless modem (usb key or bluetooth modem) to query for your position via internet
  • Zoomable map of the world with your position
  • Show any place in an interactive movable graphical map
  • Works also in closed environments
  • Based on a open map format
  • PDF Manual embedded in the app included

Optimized for macOS 11 Big Sur

"The check is performed only once a day and is very fast. Any successive launch on the same day won't perform the check. There is no bandwidth waste. The check is performed in a separate thread in background. Application performance is not affected in any way." I am a new Mac user and this tells me not much. Why not just put "Would you like to check for updates automatically?" The application itself seems to work well, but I don't really think it's worth $10. I mean, other than finding your location, it doesn't do much - think a bit outside the box and maybe add some new features that you can use the maps in, such as directions for example! Good Luck!

It is always irksome when some untalented amateur wannabe software developer creates a wonky application that nobody has to BUY as there are free appl's like Google Maps that are FREE and perform better.
