Global Positioning System - Theory and Practice | B. Hofmann-Wellenhof | SpringerIt seems that you're in Germany. We have a dedicated site for Germany. This book is dedicated to Dr. Benjamin William Remondi for many reasons. Remondi discussed with me the need for an additional GPS textbook and suggested a possible joint effort. In , I was willing to commit myself to such a project. Unfortunately, the timing was less than ideal for Dr.

An increasing number of studies suggest that characteristics of context, or the attributes of the places within which we live, work and socialize, are associated with variations in health-related behaviours and outcomes. The challenge for health research is to ensure that these places are accurately represented spatially, and to identify those aspects of context that are related to variations in health and amenable to modification. This study focuses on the design of a wearable global positioning system GPS data logger for the purpose of objectively measuring the temporal and spatial features of human activities. Person-specific GPS data provides a useful source of information to operationalize the concept of place. We designed and tested a lightweight, wearable GPS receiver, capable of logging location information for up to 70 hours continuously before recharging. The device is accurate to within 7 m in typical urban environments and performs well across a range of static and dynamic conditions. Rather than rely on static areal units as proxies for places, wearable GPS devices can be used to derive a more complete picture of the different places that influence an individual's wellbeing.
The GPS does not require the user to transmit any data, and it operates independently of any telephonic or internet reception, though these technologies can enhance the usefulness of the GPS positioning information. The GPS provides critical positioning capabilities to military, civil, and commercial users around the world. The United States government created the system, maintains it, and makes it freely accessible to anyone with a GPS receiver. The GPS project was started by the U. Department of Defense in , with the first prototype spacecraft launched in and the full constellation of 24 satellites operational in Originally limited to use by the United States military, civilian use was allowed from the s.
