ENGINEERING APPLICATIONS OF GPS DIFFERENTIAL SURVEYING

Macrometer-type GPS receivers have proven their accuracy, reliability and efficiency in trigonometric methods as well as a number of specialized engineering tasks. This paper gives examples of the advantages of the wide range of using GPS (Global Positioning System) methods. Increased advantages offered by speed and GPS systems' accuracy compared to conventional measurements are the most important reasons for using macrometer instruments. The resultant speed and accuracy when long lines are measured by GPS rather than conventional traversing, which induces proportional errors throughout each log of the traverse, is one of the most significant improvements offered by GPS.
