Author(s): Dr. S Jayaraman
The aim of this article is to brand definite about the implementation and application of GPS, GIS and Google Earth into sports especially on finding the precise location, monitoring the desirable intensity and accuracy of different sports field and ground markings. Global Positioning Systems have been rising in popularity in team field sports for over a decade.

The implications of all these technologies definitely fulfil of gap of current needs and focusing on the futuristic performances at varied capacities.
