Investigation on Accuracies of Real Time Kinematic GPS for GIS Applications
AbstractPeople specialised in or in contact with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) at administrative or user level have been looking for economical and productive means for data acquisition tasks since the advent of GIS. Because the data acquisition constitutes major part of any GIS, scientific community, especially geodetic surveyors, have come up with a solution of real time kinematic (RTK) GPS. This paper investigates the performance (internal and external accuracy) of RTK GPS. For this purpose, two separate tests are conducted. In the first test three cases are taken in consideration for internal accuracy, namely, identical satellite configuration, different satellite configuration and different reference station. In the second test, two cases are put into study in which RTK GPS results are compared with static GPS and conventional terrestrial method. The results from all the tests have proved that this modern technique is very much suitable for data acquisition of GIS’s as well as it is efficient and economical. View Full-Text
