This thoroughly revised edition of the Artech House bestseller, Introduction to GPS: The Global Position System offers you an up-to-date, easy-to-understand treatment of this tremendously important technology. The second edition includes a wealth of brand new material, including a chapter on GPS satellite orbit and new coverage of todays hottest issues, such as precise point positioning and location based services. This one-of-a-kind resource offers you the knowledge you need for your work, without bogging you down with advanced mathematics. It addresses all aspects of the GPS, emphasizes GPS applications, examines the GPS signal structure, and covers the key types of measurement being utilized in the field today.

You get an in-depth discussion on the errors and biases that affect GPS measurements, along with guidance on how to overcome them. Moreover, the book shows how the GPS can be used for a number of different accuracy levels. Datums, coordinate systems, and map projections are discussed in a simple manner, offering you a clear understanding of this widely misunderstood area. This unique reference also examines the integration of the GPS with other systems, and looks at future GPS modernization. Over 90 illustrations help clarify major topics throughout the book.
