Item description for GPS Quick Course; Technology, Systems and Operation by Lawrence Harte...

This book explains satellite position location technology and how the GPS system has evolved. You will learn the functional parts of GPS systems and how they work together to provide position measurements that are accurate to within centimeters. The operation of GPS is described including satellite acquisition, signal reception and pseudo-ranging. Discover how time reference and error correction data is used and why it is very important to provide precise satellite positioning. Global positioning system is a navigation system that uses satellites to act as reference points for the calculation of position location. You will learn how GPS devices can use other systems or devices to provide location services when there is a temporary loss of a satellite links. Explained are the multiple types of civilian and military codes used in the GPS system and how they provide different levels of accuracy and reliability. GPS radio technology is described including the frequencies GPS uses, modulation and power levels. You will learn about the many applications that use GPS technology including mapping, location monitoring, agriculture control, navigation, navigation warfare (NAVWAR), surveying and structural deformation monitoring. Learn how GPS is used in combination with other position detection systems such as laser ranging to provide 3 dimensional charts and maps. The sources of GPS errors are explained such as orbital position errors and variation in radio propagation. You will learn ways to minimize the errors such as receiver initialization, RTK and differential GPS (D-GPS). A brief description if the interface and data format standards is provided. Discover the upcoming changes to GPS including a new frequency with new PRN codes. Some of the important topics covered in this book include: . Descriptions of the Functional Parts of the GPS System . How the GPS System Works . Key GPS Applications . GPS Signal Availability and Reception . GPS Radio Technology . GPS Codes, their Accuracy and Uses . GPS Data Formats . Sources of GPS Errors and ways to Correct Them . Real Time Kinematic (RTK) GPS . Differential GPS (DGPS) . Terrestrial Based Positioning Systems . Upcoming Changes to GPS

Reviews - What do customers think about GPS Quick Course; Technology, Systems and Operation?

GPS Quick Course is a good buy...  Jan 18, 2008
This quick course book describes how the GPS systems works to provide location as well as describing many of the major applications. It describes the system to a detailed conceptual level (without getting into the mathematics) and covers methods of enhancing GPS systems as well describing the limitations of the system and how errors can get introduced.

The book is well illustrated and written in a straightforward fashion. It won't make you a GPS guru -- you'll just know more about GPS than 99% of the people you meet.

And the price is right too. If you don't know much about GPS today, this book will get you from 0 to 60 quickly and painlessly.
