Abstract:

Global Positioning System (GPS) is a network of satellites enabling locating objects on earth. In the earlier years, it was used for the military purposes but nowadays, with the advent of new technological improvements, it is used in almost every smart phone. This study aims at locating the missing persons in real time. It is achieved through integrating GPS technologies with web based systems, and locating the missing person on a satellite map. This study is components are missing person and emergency call center people. By using a program deployed in his cell-phone, a missing person calculates and sends his location to the emergency call-center through an email.Once the missing person’s email gets to the center, his location is positioned on a satellite map instantly, and an acknowledgement is sent back to the missing person.
