Written to complement Volume I, this volume expands on GPS with explanations of supplements and augmentations to the system. The supplements enhance accuracy, availability, or integrity. Of special interest is differential GPS which as proven it can provide sub-meter (even centimeter) level accuracies in a dynamic environment. The last two sections (V and VI) are detailed descriptions of the major applications in current use. In the rapidly expanding world of GPS, new uses are being found all of the time.
