Uncertainties in GPS Positioning: A Mathematical Discoursedescribes the calculations performed by a GPS receiver and the problems associated with ensuring that the derived location is a close match to the actual location. Inaccuracies in calculating a location can have serious repercussions, so this book is a timely source for information on this rapidly evolving technology.

  • Covers how a GPS receiver works and how the earth is modeled so position data can be calculated
  • Discusses the different signals and clock speeds of the satellites, the receivers, and sources of inaccuracy
  • Examines how the errors are distributed in the data and provides examples
