a library of coarse satellite orbital data used to calculate satellite position, rise time, elevation and azimuth
A data file that contains the approximate orbit information of all satellites. This set of parameters is transmitted regularly by all GPS satellites, and allows for a receiver to predict the approximate location of a satellite rapidly. Most receivers provide a facility for battery backup or non-volatile storage of the almanac to make power-on acquisition faster. The almanac is less accurate then ephemeris data, but remains valid for a longer period.
