Students Benefit from GPS Deal

Webb, Robert M. (2000) Students Benefit from GPS Deal. The Queensland Surveyor Journal, 2000(5), pp. 36-37.


QUT students are now being trained in the latest technology following the acquisition of Geodetic surveying and mapping GPS hardware and software worth $125,000. After twelve months of negotiation between QUT surveying staff and US Satellite Navigation firm Trimble Navigation and their Brisbane agents, Herga Ultimate Positioning, the Global Positioning System equipment has been installed. Associate lecturer in the School of Planning, Landscape Architecture and Surveying Robert Webb said the leading edge GPS equipment could be worn like a back-pack and used in all weather conditions.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
