gps error
GPS Error
  • Atmospheric effects
  • Multipath
  • Satellite geometry
  • Measurement noise
  • Ephemeris data
  • Satellite clock drift
  • Selective availability (SA)
satellite geometry geometric dilution of precision gdop
Satellite GeometryGeometric Dilution of Precision (GDOP)
  • GDOP can magnify or lessen other GPS errors
  • Wider angles better measurements
  • Components of GDOP
    • HDOP
    • VDOP
    • TDOP
satellite geometry position dilution of precision pdop
Satellite GeometryPosition Dilution of Precision (PDOP)
  • PDOP refers to horizontal (HDOP) and vertical (VDOP) measurements (latitude, longitude and altitude)
  • PDOP values

<=4 excellent

5-8 acceptable

>=9 poor

ephemeris data
Ephemeris Data
  • A list of the satellite’s positions as a function of time
  • Each satellite broadcasts its individual ephemeris
  • Almanac vs. ephemeris
selective availability sa
Selective Availability (SA)
  • The accuracy of GPS signals was intentionally degraded by the DoD
  • SA was the largest component of GPS error
  • SA was turned off on May 1, 2000

SA on (100 meter spread)

SA off (3 meter spread)

gps error budget
GPS Error Budget
  • Ionosphere..................................5.0 meters (0.4)
  • Troposphere................................0.5 meters (0.2)
  • Ephemeris data..............................2.5 meters (0)
  • Satellite clock drift........................1.5 meters (0)
  • Multipath....................................0.6 meters (0.6)
  • Measurement noise.......... ..........0.3 meters (0.3)
  • Selective availability.....................30-100 meters
  • Total.................................................~ 10 meters
differential correction
Differential Correction
  • GPS receiver on the ground in a known location (base station)
  • Acts as a static reference point
  • 1. Transmits error correction messages to other GPS receivers in the local area (real-time),
  • or
  • 2. Differential correction can be done on computer after GPS data are collected (post-processed)
dgps sources
DGPS Sources
  • Local base station (real-time or post-processed)
  • Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS, real- time)
  • Nationwide Differential GPS (NDGPS) radiobeacons (real-time)
  • Omnistar communication satellites (real-time)
gps base station
GPS Base Station
  • Montana State University
  • Equipment
    • 12-channel Trimble Pro- XL
  • Operating hours
    • 6 AM to 10 PM daily
how accurate is gps
How accurate is GPS?
  • Recreational and mapping grade.........................10-15 m
    • C/A code
    • Autonomous
  • Recreational and mapping grade.............................1-5 m
    • C/A code
    • With differential correction
  • Submeter mapping grade.............................10 cm to 1 m
    • C/A code & carrier
    • With differential correction
  • Survey grade.............................................................1 cm
    • Dual frequency
    • Advanced survey methods
additional factors affecting accuracy
Additional Factors Affecting Accuracy
  • Type of receivers used at rover and base
    • Manufacturer
    • Grade (mapping, sub-meter mapping, survey grade)
  • Logging rate at base?
  • Synched measurements at base?
  • Number of visible satellites (influences PDOP)
  • Occupation time at a point
geo xt accuracy after differential correction
Geo XT Accuracy*After differential correction
  • GPS Pathfinder postprocessing
    • Submeter + 1ppm (1mm/km) RMS
  • GPS Pathfinder carrier postprocessing
    • 30 cm + 5ppm
  • Real-time
    • Submeter (accuracy varies with proximity to base station)

* Minimum of 4 satellites, maximum PDOP of 6, minimum SNR of 4, minimum elevation of 15 degrees, baseline <= 250 km (155 miles) low multipath conditions
