Testing Precision of Measurements with Hand-Held GPS-Device GPSMAP 76CS

Robert Župan, Miljenko Lapaine


Small hand-held GPS-devices are more and more in use these days. A need for their accuracy and precision testing arises. Precision of measurements with the small hand-held GPS-device GPSMAP 76CS is described in this paper. Also, the correlation between reading "accuracy" during survey and deviations of individual measurements from their average value has been explored. The importance of the research is in the fact that according to our knowledge, there are not any explanations or definitions of "accuracy" shown on the screen of GPSMAP 76CS or similar devices in available references.
