The purpose of this course is to provide the student with an understanding of the principles involved in determining the size and shape of the earth, and from these data how geodetic position on the earth's surface can be obtained. It also looks at the part satellites play in position fixation and how to relate all geodetic measurements to the ground. Map projections are examined to demonstrate the presentation of geodetic data in a useable format. The course provides the student with the necessary knowledge and skills to plan and undertake GPS surveys.
