Collecting Positions with GPS and Field Data Attributes

Collecting Positions with GPS and Field Data Attributes

This series of videos describes how to use GPS and GIS in educational instruction–specifically, the whys and hows of gathering field data such as historical buildings, trees, pH in streams, invasive species, social zones on campus, and so on–and then mapping those data to analyze their spatial pattern and assess the issue from a spatial perspective. This video describes and ...

GPS tutorial : Understanding RTK

GPS tutorial : Understanding RTK

Real Time Kinematic (RTK) satellite navigation is a technique used to enhance the precision of position data derived from satellite-based positioning systems, being usable in conjunction with GNSS (GPS,GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou, GAGAN). It uses measurements of the phase of the signal′s carrier wave, rather than the information content of the signal, and relies on a single reference station to provide ...
