• It is inconvenient to obtain geographic coordinate value on a paper map which the space between lines of latitude and longitude is relatively large. Also it is unhandy to find one's location on a paper map by using handheld GPS. Due to these problems, one tend not to use paper map with handheld GPS even if the paper map provides plentiful geographical information. Also it is impossible to use a paper map with handheld GPS if the paper map does not contain several coordinate lines, coordinate value, and geodetic datum. The map based rectangular grid can solve these problems that one can easily use any kind of paper map through the handheld GPS. The map based rectangular grid is a projected coordinate system which the user can arbitrarily plan. It is a coordinate system which increases its value by 1cm along horizontal and vertical grid lines regardless of the map scale. It is easy and fast to attain located points since coordinate value can indicate the value of map based rectangular grid on a paper map. The user can directly input user define coordinate system by setting up coordinate system of handheld GPS. By using map based rectangular grid, it is easier and faster to indicate the specific value of map based rectangular grid, and one can just input the corresponding value to handheld GPS and save as “Waypoint”. However it has drawbacks that it requires to coordinate system set up on the handheld GPS according to paper used. Another problem is that it is not used commonly because the value of map based rectangular grid generates relative coordinate value.
