Computing the accuracy of GNSS baselines

When designing a surveying network, it is important to know the accuracy of your observations in order to get a realistic estimate of the accuracy that can be achieved for the coordinates. For traditional observations such as total stations angles and distances, we usually rely on manufacturer specifications and experience. […]

GNU Octave

During my studies in geodesy and surveying, we did a lot of linear algebra computations, as adjustment theory requires matrix computations. Naturally, Matlab was used a lot – although I preferred to stick with C++ most of the time, which necessitated writing my own matrix library. But there’s no denying […]
