The objective of this book is to provide insights into understanding GPS Surveying and positioning concisely in a systematic manner. The book contains six chapters, one annexure followed by bibliography. The first chapter aims at introducing Global Positioning System (GPS) for land surveying. It starts with a brief history of development of NAVSTAR (NAVigational System for Timing And Ranging) GPS followed by advantages of GPS in land surveying and principle of positioning using GPS. The chapter concludes with an overview of elements of GPS in surveying and positioning. The objective of Chapter 2 is to provide basic information about GPS for surveying. It starts with architecture of GPS followed by contents of GPS signal, GPS system time. It discusses the World Geodetic System 1984 (WGS84) explaining its coordinate system, geoid, ellipsoid, earth gravitational model etc followed by its relationships with other geodetic systems. The chapter also discusses on GPS augmentation systems and modernization steps. Chapter 3 aims at providing fundamental information required for GPS surveying. The chapter explains the different methods for GPS surveying, equipments, field operations and quality analysis of GPS observations. The chapter concludes with accuracy standards to be followed for GPS surveying. Aim of chapter 4 is to explain the content of GPS observations. It discusses the GPS observables and fundamental relations to determine unknown positions. It also provides the different errors associated with observations. The chapter concludes with criterion for assessment of quality of GPS Observables. Chapter 5 discusses processing steps involved in determination of positions from GPS observables. It explains the operations involved in pre-processing and positioning followed by criterion for assessment of GPS positions. The chapter concludes with a brief discussion on salient modules of a GPS data processing software. Chapter 6 aims at locating GPS position geo-spatially through network adjustment. It discusses least square network adjustment models and methods, processing strategies, steps for network adjustments and criterion for output quality. The chapter concludes with a worked out example on network adjustment, as detailed theoretically. The book further contains one annexure stating the steps involved for conversion of navigation data to determine satellite positions in ECEF system. Towards the end, the book contains a list of books which have been referred in writing this book. Manuscript has been thoroughly checked through plagiarism software to avoid any copyright violation. However, to make the book more understandable, standard names and symbols have been used from original literatures. To summarize, the book provides a sequence of topics aiming to basic understanding and carrying out land surveying as well as processing for geo-spatial positioning using GPS. The book is meant to serve as an introductory text book on GPS surveying and is expected to be useful for students as well as field surveyors looking for insights into GPS surveying.

The survey and the transference are the distinctive and operative acts in the transmission of real property and, where they differ from each other, one must of necessity control the other. This book addresses the aforementioned concepts by external explanations in order to understand the discrepancies between them. It also helps to avoid expensive and wasteful litigation over boundaries that were previously not in conflict. The text offers an extensive review of the law for boundary retracement and cites numerous case examples.

Kinematic Systems in Geodesy, Surveying, and Remote Sensing provides a state-of-the-art discussion on the use of the Global Positioning System (GPS) in combination with Inertial Navigation Systems (INS) for detailed sensing of the Earth's surface. Divided into two parts, the book first discusses GPS/INS with respect to theory and modelling, equipment trends, estimation methods and quality control, algorithms, and software trends. It then describes the applications of these kinematic systems to positioning and navigation, modelling and measurement of gravity, gravity gradiometry, and altitude. This collection of 63 presentations documents the symposium of the same name held in Banff, Alberta, September 1990. It is the sixth volume of the International Association of Geodesy Symposia series published by Springer-Verlag New York.

This complete guide to boundary surveying provides landowners, land surveyors and students with the necessary foundation to understand boundary surveying techniques and the common legal issues that govern boundary establishment. Far from a simple engineering function, boundary establishment is often a difficult and delicate matter, with real monetary and legal ramifications if not accomplished accurately. This book helps readers to understand why such challenges exist and what remedies may be available. Using only simple and logically explained mathematics, the principles and practice of boundary surveying are demystified for those without prior experience and the focused coverage of pivotal issues such as easements and setting lot corners will aid even licensed practitioners in untangling thorny cases. Practical advice on using both basic and advanced instruments is included, alongside clear explanations of legal regulations that will impact any surveyor’s work. For those who desire a more in-depth treatment of the mathematical aspects of boundary surveying, the Appendix includes the underlying theory and many examples of typical calculations performed by boundary surveyors.

It will help surveyors become familiar with the proper identification and requirements and find the appropriate evidence using proper procedures. The most comprehensive treatment of key elements of original surveys and the research required to find original surveys, is an important issue in retracement surveys that has never been fully explored. It emphasizes the importance and the necessity of determining the creation of the title and its sources along with its accompanying survey or location. The case studies included in the book discuss the consequences when investigators do not follow complete research procedures, and act upon less information, even though the law requires otherwise. This is a practical guide for surveyors to become familiar with the proper identification and requirements and find the appropriate evidence using the right procedures. This book is intended for the practicing surveyor and will be useful to the legal profession, historical researchers, federal land departments, and others interested in surveys. Features This is the first book that focuses on identifying original surveys, written by one of the top consultants in the United States, who brings real case examples of both successes and failures Explains land separation techniques when more than one has been used previously.
