GPS for land surveyors, 3d ed.

Van Sickle, Jan.

CRC / Taylor & Francis


338 pages




This update of the 2007 and 1996 editions should help users keep up with the accelerating changes in Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) hardware, software, and procedures. Van Sickle (Pennsylvania State U.), who supervised surveys with the first commercially available GPS receivers in the early 1980s, explains the theoretical and practical basics of this system of measuring distances between points via satellite signals. New to this edition are color illustrations; a section on real-time network services; GPS code; an entire chapter devoted to GNSS; and discussion of the Russian, Chinese, and Japanese systems. The text includes examples of GPS surveying techniques, review questions, and a glossary.
