Would it be possible to monitor a radio frequency identification system via the Global Positioning System?

—Name withheld


No, that would not be possible. The Global Positioning System employs a different frequency than RFID tags do, as well as different communication protocols. However, there are RFID tags that have been integrated with GPS devices. A recent post in this forum, in fact, dealt with that very issue (see Has RFID Been Integrated With GPS?).
