Sonar (Sound Navigation and Ranging):

Sonar is a technology that uses sound waves to detect and locate objects underwater. It is commonly used in marine applications, including fishing, navigation, and underwater mapping.

GPS (Global Positioning System):

GPS is a satellite-based navigation system that provides accurate location and time information to users anywhere on or near the Earth. It was originally developed for military purposes but is now widely used in civilian applications.

While sonar and GPS serve different purposes, they can complement each other in some applications. For example, marine vessels often use both sonar and GPS for navigation and underwater exploration. Sonar helps to map the underwater terrain and locate objects like shipwrecks or fish, while GPS provides the vessel’s precise location and route guidance on the surface.
