Clearly outlining the basic principles of coordinate systems, this second edition of a bestseller covers ellipsoids, datums, and plane coordinates as they are used in GIS and GPS. It also covers the geoid and the concepts of elevation. The author explains complex topics with in a logical progression and in a manner which is neither too complicated not oversimplified, avoiding getting bogged down in the mathematics. The new edition expands the material with updates that have occurred in the field during the past five years, especially in the World Geodetic System and International Terrestrial Reference Frame, and includes the upcoming GNSS constellations and coordinate implications.
