I'm new in this topics and I'm not clear about what is the best solution.
I want to tracking the movement of paddle boats in a small park lake (15.000 square meter).
There are 20 boats, there is a small "island" in the middle of the lake and I want to have a real time tracking of the position of each boat.
I don't know if I have to go for an APRS system or a GPS system.
I appreciate any suggestion
Thank you very much in advance.

APRS (Amateur Packet Radio System) is a protocol for using a ham radio to transmit data.
GPS (Global positioning system) is a device for locating the specific position of something that the device is attached to.
Should be pretty obvious which you need.
The art of getting good answers lies in asking good questions.
