    Abstract: This paper focuses on modeling the errors which normally degrade the accuracy of Global Poisoning System (GPS). The performance of the GPS is mainly affected by ionospheric errors. SiRF Star III single frequency receiver is used for collecting and projecting datum in World Geodetic System 1984 (WGS-84) co-ordinate form. To project the ellipsoidal model onto a map model, datum conversion from WGS-84 to Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) form is needed. The conversion introduces errors

    There are many reasons that a city, county or state keeps accurate and up-to-date information to maintain the road right of way and road centerline on already established roadways. They need data on the roadway centerline to be able to have accurate data on property boundaries, easements, right of ways and potential infringements that could affect future municipal or private construction projects. There is an amazing amount of data base information available to today's surveyors with respect to roadway

    The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a burgeoning technology, which provides unequalled accuracy and flexibility of positioning for navigation, surveying and GIS data capture. The GPS NAVSTAR (Navigation Satellite timing and Ranging Global Positioning System) is a satellite-based navigation, timing and positioning system. The GPS provides continuous three-dimensional positioning 24 hrs a day throughout the world. The technology seems to be beneficiary to the GPS user community in terms of obtaining

    The topic I have chosen is the history of surveying level equipment and the types of surveying equipment. To start with ill go over the types of surveying equipment, in 1400 BC the Egyptians accurately divided the land to tax the people and created a rough draft of the plumb bob to determine if something is level by tying a rock to a beam and seeing if it fell straight down. Around 120 BC the Greeks used geometry to accurately divide the land and developed the diopter which is the first recorded

    The Evolution Of GPS

    • 718 Words
    • 2 Pages

    The Evolution of GPS In this paper I am going to compare the development of the GPS (Global Positioning System) using incremental model and a social construction model. I believe that in this case the incremental model does a better job of describing the development of the GPS since it allows innovation and evolution compared to linear one, since it is more precise in everyday life. In order to compare the GPS evolution I must go back to the early years when ships navigated through the world by using

    There have been numerous advancements in construction surveying equipment and technologies over the past several decades, but probably none more impactful to the construction industry than the Global Positioning Satellite system or GPS. Prior to today's GPS survey technology, the survey team relied on complex field calculations and measurements to determine grade, set the centerline and offset stakes. Continual field surveys and calculation were required to set and keep grade as the construction

    Introduction In olden days, our ancestors used many different measures to find their way around the Earth. They used the positions of stars, landmarks were put up and detailed maps were drafted in order to prevent themselves from getting lost. In today’s day and age, it is much easier to know exactly where on Earth you are and find your way around without ever getting lost again - as long as you have a handy device known as a GPS. I knew that GPS’s could be found in cars, boats, planes, computers

    Surveying dates back to the ancient Greeks, Romans and Egyptians where they used simple things such as water to help create a level structure. As the world began to industrialize and surveying became a necessity and the level once used by the Greeks had to adapt. Today with the help of technology we have moved from hand calculations and tedious leveling to self-compensating levels that give us the fastest and most accurate readings. In the mid 1600s a man by the name of Melchisedech Thevenot was
