This course starts with a review of different GPS operation modes, which include static, rapid static, stop-go, kinematic, kinematic on-the-fly, realtime and non-realtime; and GPS data processing procedure. It will then continue with other major topics such as high precision GPS positioning including inter-mixing different GPS antenna types, mixing RINEX data, using Precise Ephemeris, utilizing RTCM messages and NMEA strings; GPS datums and reference frames. The chapter on Network Adjustment will analysis network adjustment using satellite-based baseline data. Detailed GPS data processing techniques and ambiguity resolution will be studied, as well as different GPS reference station networks in North America and GPS applications. The course will conclude on the study of other satellite navigation techniques such as Transit Doppler, GLONASS and Galileo.
