Welcome to the official WIGS site. WIGS is both an API to talk to a GPS receiver over the serial port via the NMEA protocol supported by most GPS receivers, as well as an application that use this API.
The first phase of the WIGS project is now completed as we've published the API.
The second phase is to make an application to present the data received from the GPS in a simple and intuitive way.
The third phase, and also the most important phase, is to add a special mapping feature which allows the user to load any scanned map and, as long as that map is calibrated by providing a set of known coordinates on that map (usually the corners of the map), present the users current position on that map.
