The advancement of GPS technology has made it possible to use GPS devices as orientation and navigation tools, but also as tools to track spatio-temporal information. GPS tracking data can be broadly applied in location-based services, such as spatial distribution of the economy, transportation routing and planning, traffic management and environmental control. Therefore, knowledge of how to process the data from a standard GPS device is crucial for further use. Previous studies have considered various issues of the data processing at the time. This paper, however, aims to outline a general procedure for processing GPS tracking data. The procedure is illustrated step by step by the processing of real-world GPS data of car movements in Borlänge in the centre of Sweden.
