The Global Positioning System is a satellite-based navigation system made up of a network of 24 satellites placed into orbit. The GPS is made up of three parts: satellites orbiting the earth; control and monitoring stations on earth and the GPS receivers owned by users. GPS satellites broadcast signals from space that are picked up and identified by GPS receivers. Each GPS receiver then provides three-dimensional location (latitude, longitude, and altitude ) plus the time. This book has been prepared for Researchers, Scientists and for all those interested in Global Positioning System.
