National geodetic survey user guidelines for single base real time GNSS positioning

Henning W. (2013)

These user guidelines are intended to provide a practical method to obtain consistent, accurate three-dimensional positions using classical, single-base real-time (RT) techniques (see Chapter V.). However, in addition to these best methods, and due to the plethora of variables associated with RT positioning, this document is meant to be a source for pertinent background information that the competent RT user should digest and keep in mind when performing high accuracy positioning.

Exploring GPS - A GPS Users Guide (PDF 2.7 MB)

McElroy S., Robins I., Jones G. and Kinlyside D. (2007)

This book is written to instruct and entertain. It began life as a one-day instruction course for field workers and professional map users coming to grips with GPS, looking to see how it could be used in their daily work.Shortly after, the recreational aspects of GPS were recognised and included. Here we side-step complicated equations and GPS-jargon and get down to the basics of how to get the most out of hand-held GPS receivers.
