GNSS Survey & Engineering
Handbook for Surveyors and Survey Engineers

GNSS Survey & Engineering aims at providing the everyday professional GPS user with enough background for the understanding and correct operation of satellite navigation equipment in general and GPS in particular. Today, GPS is almost synonymous with simple navigation and positioning in nearly all sectors. There are many brands and models to choose from and prices are low. Even so, thorough knowledge of satellite navigation seems to be private to specialists like geodesists and manufacturers. The group of daily users of GPS systems and data however is becoming larger by the day.

Principles of Geospatial Surveying

This handbook provides a thorough understanding of the principles of modern geospatial surveying techniques and replaces the author’s highly successful Practical Surveying and Computations. It has been completely recast to accord with modern practices of geospatial surveying. Since most practical work is carried out by prescribed systems and processed by software packages, the book concentrates on those essential principles which the user needs to know.The mathematical treatment relates directly to those topics found in the author’s successful textbook, Maths for Map Makers.

High Resolution Optical Satellite Imagery

This book had been awarded the Karl Kraus Medal 2016 by ISPRS.

It is Written by a team of acknowledged international experts, this is a comprehensive guide to the characteristics and use of high resolution optical images from satellite-borne sensors, concentrating on sensors designed for mapping. It considers in detail satellites launched since 1999 with GSD of less than 1m, but also looks at sensors with a ground sample distance (GSD) of less than 15m, operational since SPOT 1. The book explains to students, anyone working in map production and scientists working in fields other than mapping, the way in which high resolution imagery is obtained and the issues which surround its collection and use.

Journey into Africa
The Life and Death of Keith Johnston, Scottish Cartographer and Explorer (1844–79). James McCarthy

The story of Keith Johnston, a hitherto neglected one, has much to tell us about Scotland’s part in British activities in Africa in the 19th century; James McCarthy tells that story admirably. Extract from Foreword by Professor Roy Bridges, President, Hakluyt Society

This true and dramatic story begins with the discovery of the last expedition diary of a forgotten Edinburgh cartographer – Keith Johnston – in the Royal Geographical Society of Scotland. His reputation was established as a competent explorer and ultimately led to his leadership of the RGS’ expedition to find a feasible trade route to the central lakes of Africa. The unfolding story concerns his last, fatal expedition into the interior of Africa.
