GPS and GNSS Technology in Geosciences offers an interdisciplinary approach to applying advances in GPS/GNSS technology for geoscience research and practice. As GPS/GNSS signals can be used to provide useful information about the Earth’s surface characteristics and land surface composition, GPS equipment and services for commercial purposes continues to grow, thus resulting in new expectations and demands. This book provides case studies for a deeper understanding of the operation and principles of widely applied approaches and the benefits of the technology in everyday research and activities.
- Presents processing, methods and techniques of GPS/GNSS implementation that are utilized in in-situ data collection in design and systems analysis
- Offers an all-inclusive, critical overview of the state-of-the-art in different algorithms and techniques in GPS/GNSS
- Addresses both theoretical and applied research contributions on the use of this technology in a variety of geoscience disciplines
Graduate students and researchers in geosciences, GIS, remote sensing, planetary science, environmental science, agriculture, and big data
Section I: General Introduction to GPS/GNSS technology
Section II: GPS/GNSS concept and algorithms
Section III: GPS/GNSS data processing techniques
