Spatial Error Analysis: A Unified, Application-oriented Treatment
David Y. Hsu
Electrical Engineering Spatial Error Analysis A Unified Application-Oriented Treatment The involved computations required by spatial error problems, and the variety and number of error measures being used by engineers and scientists associated with aerospace, navigation, and Global Positioning Systems (GPS) can make finding a balance point between seller claims and buyer specifications a huge challenge. Spatial Error Analysis clearly defines the full range of error measures and shows the correct conversion from one to another so that comparison from a common ground can be achieved. Spatial Error Analysis is an all-in-one sourcebook on error measurements in one-, two-, and three-dimensional spaces. This book features exhaustive, systematic coverage of error measurement relationships, techniques, and solutions used to solve general, correlated cases. It is packed with 62 figures and 24 tables. MATLAB-based M-files* for practical applications created especially for this volume are available on the Web at ftp://ftp.mathworks.com/pub/books/hsu. Solutions to two- and three- dimensional problems are presented without relying on equal standard deviations from each channel. They also make no assumption that the random variables of interest are independent or uncorrelated. * MATLAB (developed by Math Works, Inc.) must be purchased separately.
