GNSS Survey & Engineering, a 238-page primer for the professional user, has just been published by Geomares. Four opening chapters deal with the general layout of GNSS, its errors and its practical use. Geared to the everyday professional GNSS user, this section does not give in-depth theoretical background. The second group of four chapters discusses topics such as geodesy, satellite signals and positioning theory. Filling in the background of subjects in the first part, this section is aimed at the more specialized professional user or student who needs an in-depth knowledge of GNSS positioning.
This is the second edition of the book by Huibert-Jan Lekkerkerk. The book is based on lectures the author has written for Skilltrade, an online training site, as well as a series of articles on satellite navigation systems. Lekkerk has bachelor’s degrees in hydrographic surveying and maritime electronics and a Master’s degree in geographic information management. He works in hydrography and on the standardization, analysis, processing and dissemination of geographic data for the Dutch government.
