Many mobile applications rely on the Global Positioning System (GPS) to provide position and location information. However, there are many problems with using GPS in urban environments due to the variable nature of GPS's accuracy and availability. This paper introduces a simple tool that visualises the current state of GPS availability in real-time. This tool can be used for scenario planning for certain types of mobile applications and as aid for analysis of location logs.
