Presentation Transcript


Gps error l.jpg

GPS Error

  • Atmospheric effects

  • Multipath

  • Satellite geometry

  • Measurement noise

  • Ephemeris data

  • Satellite clock drift

  • Selective availability (SA)


Ionospheric tropospheric refraction l.jpg

Ionospheric & Tropospheric Refraction


Multipath l.jpg

Multipath


Satellite geometry geometric dilution of precision gdop l.jpg

Satellite GeometryGeometric Dilution of Precision (GDOP)

  • GDOP can magnify or lessen other GPS errors

  • Wider angles better measurements

  • Components of GDOP

    • HDOP

    • VDOP

    • TDOP


Dilution of precision dop l.jpg

Dilution of Precision (DOP)


Satellite geometry position dilution of precision pdop l.jpg

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 l.jpg

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 l.jpg

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 l.jpg

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 l.jpg

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 l.jpg

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 l.jpg

GPS Base Station

  • Montana State University

  • Equipment

    • 12-channel Trimble Pro- XL

  • Operating hours

    • 6 AM to 10 PM daily

How accurate is gps l.jpg

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 l.jpg

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 l.jpg

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
