GPS to Map and to Ground Coordinates – DUE: January 27

A look at the Mercator Projection

Equations used for Datum Transformations

Geodetic to Cartesian converter

NRCan Online Geodetic Tools

 

hey Norman add this to the content asap heres the NRCAN website to do the conversions for question 2 and 3

http://webapp.geod.nrcan.gc.ca/geod/tools-outils/trx.php

for question 4 all answers are found in module 2 unit 3 starting from slide 5 to slide 22 it might sound like alot but its not its mostly pictures refer to the facts and requirement slides for quick answers slide 11,18 and 21

    delete this comment and add it to the contents ASAP!!!!!!!!!!

    1. for question 5 assume utm parameters
      point scale factor = scale factor @ central meridian
      esf=semi major axis/(semi major axis * ellipsoid height avg

      for question 6 use Leica Geo office 8.1
      download the HT2.0 geoid from http://www.leica-geosystems.com/en/page_catalog.htm?cid=8681
      create a new geoid,
      create a new projection set it as TM (transverse mercator)
      then finally create a new coordinate system.
      create a new project and enter your points select local or grid and you new coordinates will be there.
