Wide area Master Station

WMS or Wide area Master Station is a ground based co-ordinating station in the WAAS GPS sensor grid. These function to co-ordinate the information sent from GPS satellites and WRS ground-based stations, in order to create a triangulated, 3D spatial location for the user. They also use this data to calculate if a satellite or WRS signal has moved from where it should have originated from, to determine if there is a fault in the system.

The WMS then transmits the completed signal to a satellite or stratellite for delivery back to the originator.

The Difference between FPS and Lag
Participants in modern internet-controlled, heavily graphics-orientated virtual worlds often confuse fps and lag. When an area cluttered with graphics, and a complex drawing area slows down, all too often people say that the area is laggy, or their Internet connection is not sufficient to handle it. This is patiently untrue, and continued perpetuation of this idea leads people to invest in hardware they do not need, which has no effect on the problem.

Here we see one of the rooms off of the main concourse, where the company nods politely to all the independent radio firms that operate within it's platform. Eight platforms are available. To hear the music, just stand in the column-shaped invisible zone on top of each disk, and the music will start streaming, assuming the radio station lives long enough of course. This location brings home another problem the platform is trying to hide - the steady decline of users.
