Definitions for "Global Positioning System"
A worldwide system of electronic navigation in which a vessel,aircraft or missile determines its latitude and longitude by measuringthe transmission time from several orbiting satellites. GPSis more precise than any other navigation system available, yieldingposition accurate within 10 meters 95% of the time.
A surveying method that uses a set of 24 satellites in geostationary position high above the Earth. Specially designed GPS receivers, when positioned at a point on Earth, can measure the distance from that point to three or more orbiting satellites. The coordinates of the point are determined through the geometric calculations of triangulation. GPS provides accurate geodetic data for any point on the Earth.
