Geo WPS allows to track your geographic position using macOS wi-fi geo-tracking and other available hardware inside and connected to your Mac to detect your coordinate in the best precise way via Apple core location.

Geo WPS is an alternative to Apple map, it uses the well know OpenLayers map databases.
The map is updated live from the internet (almost all the world is mapped to a very high level) with possibility to zoom up to 18 levels.

It can work with any Mac with Wi-fi turned on (to detect correct location) and an available internet connection (using any kind of connection, not necessarily via wi-fi, which is required to be ON just to detect the presence of wi-fi stations around and query a world database to understand position)

In some way Geo WPS reassemble GPS features without a GPS (it can works only in area with mapped wi-fi signals, typically urban areas ) even when the sky is not visible (in GPS system visibility of sky is mandatory)
It works perfectly in closed environments if it detects mapped wi-fi stations around.

The map can be shown with the zoom level you prefer and maintaining this zoom level during position upgrade.

The map can scroll maintaining your position at the window center when you are moving (providing you are net connected, to calculate your position and show the current location map).

The map is interactive and user can drag scroll and drag zoom.

nothing compared to google maps - i wish i had more options, satelite views, the ability to scroll side to side with the track pad, everything i type into the search bar you guys cant find it, i have to manualy find what iam looking for, this app is a waste of 6 bucks and everyone just needs to stick with google maps. you guys need to update this app.
