SUR 3520: Measurement Science Spring 2008 – Section 4218 Compute the relative errors in ppm on the: (a) repeated baselines EA-AE, EB-BE, EC-CE, and ED-DE (b) loop closures EAB, EBC, ECD, and EDA. 9.2 Solve problem 9.1 again using the following assumptions: - measurements are uncorrelated - all baseline components are of the same weight ( σ = 0.005 m) - only baselines AE, BE, CE, and DE are available as observations Find the most probable values for the coordinates of ‘E’ and analyze the results.

SUR 3520: Measurement Science Spring 2008 – Section 4218 Optional Questions 9.3 What are the different sources of errors in GPS measurements? Give an estimate of the approximate value of each of them. 9.4 Write down the GPS range observation equation for: (a) Code (b) Phase Explain the difference. 9.5 Explain, with the help of sketches, the minimum requirement for: (a) GPS Single Point Positioning (b) GPS baseline solution 9.6 Explain briefly why more precise GPS positioning can be done through differencing (relative positioning)? 9.7 What is the observable in each of the following cases: (a) GPS Single Point Positioning (b) GPS network solution 9.8 Draw a sketch to show the geocentric and geodetic coordinates used in locating points on the surface of Earth. 9.9 Explain why a network solution can result in more precise solution than single point or baseline positioning? 9.10 What do the elements of the coefficient matrix “J” represent in 3D space, in case of: (a) GPS Single Point Positioning (b) GPS baseline solution 9.11 How would you get an initial approximate solution for the following cases: (a) GPS Single Point Positioning (b) GPS baseline solution 9.12 Given the following pseudo-range observations to a single receiver, compute the most probable value for the receiver position.
