Technical Engineering and Design Guides, as adapted from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, No. 28.

This manual provides technical specifications and procedural guidance for surveying with the NAVSTAR Global Positioning System (GPS). Intended as a comprehensive reference guide for differential carrier phase GPS surveying, it details static and kinematic survey methods, GPS data reduction, post-processing, and adjustment methods.

Topics include:

  • NAVSTAR GPS operational theory,
  • GPS applications,
  • absolute positioning,
  • relative positioning,
  • survey equipment,
  • GPS control and field surveys,
  • post-processing data, and
  • contracted GPS survey costs.

NAVSTAR Global Positioning System Surveying will be of use to any engineering, topographic, or construction surveyor performing surveys for civil works and military construction projects.
