As more and more individuals have to travel for work, travel and a myriad of other reasons, it has become somewhat of a priority to have the best technological device to help them get from one point to the next. As a result of this GPS Units have become exceedingly important, especially for those who are on the road on a daily or weekly basis. That is why "How To Pick The Perfect Portable GPS Unit" is a must for every consumer. Gone are the days when printed maps are used to find out just which way to go, not to mention that they tend to become outdated pretty quickly as more and more changes are made to the infrastructure. In this day and age electronic devices are needed to help the user to select the fastest route to their destination. They are pretty user friendly and can easily be updated.
Applied GPS for Engineers and Project Managers introduces civil engineersÂ¿especially those who are not already licensed surveyorsÂ¿to the fundamental principles of global positioning technology (GPS). This book covers GPS basics, including positioning and measuring principles, techniques to improve accuracy, and an analysis of low-cost versus high-precision systems. Subsequent chapters explain the considerations for selecting and implementing a GPS system and then demonstrate specific applications of GPS in a variety of engineering situations, including monitoring the health of structures, robotics and machine control, maritime operations, material tracking in large construction sites, site control and design, and monitoring geohazards. This book will be valuable for all civil engineers interested in benefiting from the use of GPS technologies.
The author of this book, my brother, died in a French military hospital of the effects of exposure in the last fierce fighting that broke the Prussian power over Christendom; fighting for which he had volunteered after being invalided home. Any notes I can jot down about him must necessarily seem jerky and incongruous; for in such a relation memory is a medley of generalisation and detail, not to be uttered in words. One thing at least may fitly be said here.
