A method for direct comparison of differential global positioning systems suitable for precision farming

A method for direct comparison of differential global positioning systems suitable for precision farming

Precision agriculture Proceedings of the 3rd International Conference, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, 23-26 June 1996: 663-674

Precision farming always uses a positioning system, typically a GPS (global positioning system); choosing the most suitable system is important, as any spatial positioning errors cause inaccuracies in mapping and application processes. A test procedure is given for direct comparison between the performances of various differential GPS receiver systems. Three such systems were compared in a worked example.
