INTRODUCTION
OBJECTIVE
Global Positioning System, or in short GPS, is serving positioning
and navigation requirements for over two decades. Currently GPS is
the GNSS primarily used by both military and civilian users.
Employing hand-held devices, these signals can be used to
accurately pinpoint user’s location anywhere on the globe, at zero
cost. The GNSS signals, now globally available are used to advance
applications which were pioneered using GPS.
In Pakistan, use of GPS is growing day by day for applications
including fleet tracking and management, machine guidance,
Location Based Services (LBS) and most importantly surveying and
mapping. Regardless of the GNSS used, various applications could
be grouped into following categories: Personal Navigation, Aviation
Application, Automotive Application, Marine Application, Space
Application, Agriculture, Forestry and Natural Resources
Exploration, Geodesy & Precision Surveying, Remote Sensing of
Environment etc.
►
This course is aimed at imparting the participants with knowledge
about GPS/DGPS/GNSS, its working principles and modern day
applications. More importantly, it covers the practical aspects of the
technology from user’s point of view. In addition, it provides
information about GPS data collection in the field, and suggests
data filtering techniques and ways to avoid data corruption. This
course also offers guidance and data to users on selecting right
equipment for their use.
The main course contents include:
Exploration, Geodesy & Precision Surveying, Remote Sensing of
The course will cover the concepts of global positioning,
location determination, its accessibility to end-users and the
various augmentations systems available for service
enhancement as well as the future of GNSS.
► Development of skills related to data collection, processing and
avoidance of data corruption in the field
► Applications of GNSS, including both positioning and nonpositioning applications.
