Abstract

This chapter is not intended to be a text on global positioning surveying. The bibliography contains many other sources that will greatly expand one’s knowledge of the topic to any depth or breadth required. The objective of the chapter is to provide information to eliminate problems commonly experienced by first time users of GPS technology. Some related topics are triangulation (Chapter 11), trilateration (Chapter 12), geodesy (Chapter 13), and inertial and satellite surveys (Chapter 14).
