Book Summary:

The Global Positioning System and Geographical Information Systems, working in tandem, provide a powerful tool. Recent developments such as the removal of Selective Availability have not merely made these technologies more accurate but have also opened up a new seam of applications, particularly in location based services. The Global Positioning System and GIS is a clear text and guide to the use and integration of these powerful technologies, with each topic combining an overview with a step-by-step approach. This significantly revised and extended second edition now comes with a set of resources on a CD-ROM, including an instructor's guide, demonstration data and exercises. It is a straightforward introductory text for students and teachers on GIS/GPS courses as well as a practical and introductory field manual for mapping science professionals, giving basic practical guidance, particularly to the integrated use of ESRI's GIS software with Trimble's GPS hardware.

Book Summary:

This new edition adds the most recent advances in GPS technology, although the overall structure essentially conforms to the former editions. The textbook explains in a comprehensive manner the concepts of GPS as well as the latest applications in surveying and navigation. Description of project planning, observation, and data processing is provided for novice GPS users. Special emphasis is placed on the modernization of GPS, covering the new signal structure and improvements in the space and control segment. Furthermore, the augmentation of GPS by satellite-based and ground-based systems leading to future Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) is discussed.

Book Summary:

All the expert guidance you need to understand, build, andoperate GPS receivers The Second Edition of this acclaimed publication enablesreaders to understand and apply the complex operation principles ofglobal positioning system (GPS) receivers. Although GPS receiversare widely used in everyday life to aid in positioning andnavigation, this is the only text that is devoted to completecoverage of their operation principles. The author, one of theforemost authorities in the GPS field, presents the material from asoftware receiver viewpoint, an approach that helps readers betterunderstand operation and that reflects the forecasted integrationof GPS receivers into such everyday devices as cellular telephones.Concentrating on civilian C/A code, the book provides the tools andinformation needed to understand and exploit all aspects ofreceiver technology as well as relevant navigation schemes: Overview of GPS basics and the constellation of satellites thatcomprise the GPS system Detailed examination of GPS signal structure, acquisition, andtracking Step-by-step presentation of the mathematical formulas forcalculating a user's position Demonstration of the use of computer programs to run keyequations Instructions for developing hardware to collect digitized datafor a software GPS receiver Complete chapter demonstrating a GPS receiver following asignal flow to determine a user's position The Second Edition of this highly acclaimed text has beengreatly expanded, including three new chapters: Acquisition of weak signals Tracking of weak signals GPS receiver related subjects Following the author's expert guidance and easy-to-follow style,engineers and scientists learn all that is needed to understand,build, and operate GPS receivers. The book's logical flow frombasic concepts to applications makes it an excellent textbook forupper-level undergraduate and graduate students in electricalengineering, wireless communications, and computer science.

Book Summary:

This book is dedicated to Dr. Benjamin William Remondi for many reasons. The project of writing a Global Positioning System (GPS) book was con ceived in April 1988 at a GPS meeting in Darmstadt. Dr. Remondi discussed with me the need for an additional GPS textbook and suggested a possible joint effort. In 1989, I was willing to commit myself to such a project. Un fortunately, the timing was less than ideal for Dr. Remondi. Therefore, I decided to start the project with other coauthors. Dr. Remondi agreed and indicated his willingness to be a reviewer. I selected Dr. Herbert Lichtenegger, my colleague from the University of Technology at Graz, Austria, and Dr. James Collins from the United States. In my opinion, the knowledge of the three authors should cover the wide spectrum of GPS. Dr. Lichtenegger is a geodesist with broad experience in both theory and practice. He has specialized his research to geodetic astron omy including orbital theory and geodynamical phenomena. Since 1986, Dr. Lichtenegger's main interest is dedicated to GPS. Dr. Collins retired from the U.S. National Geodetic Survey in 1980, where he was the Deputy Director. For the past ten years, he has been deeply involved in using GPS technology with an emphasis on surveying. Dr. Collins was the founder and president of Geo/Hydro Inc. My own background is theoretically oriented. My first chief, Prof. Dr. Peter Meissl, was an excellent theoretician; and my former chief, Prof. DDDDr. Helmut Moritz, fortunately, still is.

Book Summary:

The second edition of this widely praised book offers a comprehensive introduction to GPS: the system, signals, receivers, measurements, and algorithms for estimation of position, velocity, and time. It is intended as a textbook for a senior- or graduate-level engineering course and a self-study guide for practicing engineers.The book is divided into four parts. Part I introduces the basic framework for a global navigation satellite system, including coordinate frames, time references, and satellite orbits, and provides an overview of GPS, GLONASS, and Galileo. Part II describes the fruits of GPS: estimation of position, velocity, and time. Part III discusses the ingenious structure of the GPS signals. Part IV introduces the signal processing steps required to extract the necessary measurements from these signals, and explores the challenges posed by signal blockage and RFI.
