Abstract

With those few words, the central role of the Global Positioning System (GPS) in today’s armory of geodetic measurement tools is placed in perspective. It is a system that has evolved, albeit very rapidly, to become the most economic and accessible of the geodetic technologies. However, along the way, the GPS technologies have had to undergo quite a transformation in hardware, software and operational strategies and procedures. It is one of the latter that this paper is concerned with.
