Range Finder and score Database for Golf Applications

Chand , Subhasis and Patro , Asutosh (2013) Range Finder and score Database for Golf Applications. BTech thesis.



The objective of this project is to develop a device capable of calculating distance between two points on surface of earth. This device finds its application in professional golf courses where the members need to change their stick depending upon distance between flag and the person. There are a number of devices available in the market for this purpose. But the methodology and components used by them are costly and takes a lot of time. The methodology they use is that they get connected to Google earth (i.e. internet). Prior to that this device is very user friendly, and stores all the recorded data and scores onto a remote server by wireless communication. This feature is not supported by any device related to this in market. This reduces work of the person in charge of the golf course. The database can be accessed only at that server (i.e. PC) by means of a GUI. The database and GUI are password protected and can be accessed by both players and administrators. The technology used behind this is use of GPS modem to extract GPS location of two points and calculating distance between those two points using an algorithm. The GPS location consists of latitude and longitude. Any point on surface of earth can be represented by these two values. And the device is named as “Range Finder for Golf Application”.
