    If only one satellite signal was available to a receiver, the set of possible positions would include the entire range sphere surrounding the satellite. Each GPS bird has an orbit time of around twelve hours, so in a couple of instances I had to wait up to two hours at a particular location for enough of them to become visible. Note that the contour data or any other sampled elevation datasets are not a DLSM. Numerals and decimal points should be legible and permit only one interpretation.

    The ,scale data served as the base for the Bureau of the Census Topologically Integrated Geographically Encoded Reference files--the digital representation of the Nation used in the census. With a GIS, researchers can combine geographically referenced data from the NDCDB and many other sources and perform complex analyses that have not been possible before. Letters sent, The DGPS network includes some 80 broadcast sites, each of which includes a survey-grade base station and a "radiobeacon" transmitter that broadcasts correction signals at kHz just below the AM radio band. Still, there are lots of mapping applications for which it's not practical to use a survey-grade unit.

    To achieve this level of accuracy, surveyors must overcome errors caused by faulty instrument calibration; wind, temperature, and soft ground; and human errors, including misplacing the instrument and misreading the measurement wheels.
