Analysis of the accuracy of determining altitude from GPS measurements

University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn

The error sources distorted GPS measuring war divided on the three groups i satellite, receiver and pulse propagation errors. A few factors were distinguished in every group. The analysis of the influence of the chosen one factor from every group on the altitude definition accuracy over the ellipsoid by means of GPS measuring woos made by author.
