A study into the accuracy of GPS location services and their validity in court cases

  • Stephen Hadson Derby University

Abstract

This study investigates the accuracy of GPS location data and the validity to use these details in court cases, to prove or disprove any statement evidence.
The project was undertaken using three separate smartphone devices, throughout many different areas. This required intense research and planning to enable clear and sufficient data, in order to analyse and scrutinise the findings.
The findings in this project found that GPS location accuracy was longer in meters than previous studies into this subject. Therefore, further investigations are required into the positioning errors of GPS location data and the legitimacy of this evidence being used as evidence in court cases is required.
