The Reference Manual gives you detailed information about all classes used in GpsTools.
For GPS access the best starting point
To use raster maps in your application
Map is the best
For polygons, ESRI shapefiles and basic GIS features Shape is where to start looking.

A License key
is necessary to use GpsTools. During development the key found here
can be used. To distribute the component as part of your application you need to purchase
a license. The License.LicenseKey property must be
set to a valid license key by your application or else the component will refuse to work properly.
All variables in GpsTools ActiveX are Variants. This is to support all kinds of COM enabled
The type information (e.g. String, Integer, etc.) that are specified in the reference manual are the
Variant type and nothing else. For Visual Basic and script language developer this is of no major
concern, everything is handled automatically, but VC++ developers need to be aware of this.
In GpsTools .NET Variants are not used.
