Abstract

When using airborne LIDAR to produce digital elevation models, the global positioning system (GPS) positioning of the LIDAR instrument is often the limiting factor, with accuracies typically quoted as being 10-30 cm. However, a comprehensive analysis of the accuracy and precision of GPS positioning of aircraft over large temporal and spatial scales is… (More)
