Wide area ground Reference Station

WRS or Wide area ground Reference Station is the name of a ground station in the WAAS GPS sensor grid. These function in the exact same way as GPS satellites, providing a lower-altitude signal to use in conjunction with the satellites to work out the Z factor or height positional information.

WRS station signals suffer from terrain LOS issues such as mountains or dense urban areas blocking the signal. Therefore as many WRS stations as possible are utilised to provide data which is then sent to a WMS station prior to transmission back to the recipient.

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.
