Best GPS Device for Research

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013

Including location data is becoming important in any research work. The location data in form of GPS coordinates will help in mapping and visualizing the research work.

One of the best GPS device that you can use to collect the location data is a Garmin handheld GPS.

hanheld gps for mappingThis rugged handheld GPS devices can work in some of the remotest parts of the world. The reason being, they rely on satellites above the sky rather than limited mobile phone towers. Satellite signal can be picked all over the world and the only thing required is a clear sky.

The Garmin GPS come with a USB data cable that connects to your PC/ laptop, enabling you to transfer data from GPS to computer.

If you are planning to use a GPS during your research work and are interested in buying one of these GPS, please contact us for a quote.

How to Get Better Accuracy with Garmin Handheld GPS

Saturday, August 3rd, 2013

The modern Garmin handheld GPS such as the eTrex 10/20/30 and the gpsmap 62/62s connect to GLONNAS that enables the devices to get better accuracy.

GLONNAS alone won’t guarantee a user accurate readings, to get accurate readings, a user needs to follow basic guidelines of using a GPS.

1. Determine the type of internal antenna in your GPS. This information will likely be listed in a table of “specifications” in the back of your owner’s manual. There are two main types:

  • Patch antenna, and
  • Quadrifilar helix antenna

2. Hold your GPS properly to receive a stronger signal from the GPS satellites:

  •  If you have a patch antenna hold your GPS flat
  • If you have a quadrifilar helix antenna hold your GPS erect

3. Stand where you have a clear view of the sky. Buildings, hills, trees, etc., will block the signals from the GPS satellites. The goal is to receive the signal from as many GPS satellites as possible.

4. Hold your GPS at shoulder height. Even your body can block the signal from the GPS satellites.

5. Use “position averaging”. This is a feature that allows your GPS to take many measurements and then calculate an average position before saving it in the GPS receiver’s memory.

6. Turn on the WAAS/GLONNAS capability. The WAAS/GLONNAS signal is broadcast from several geo stationary communications satellites. The WAAS/GLONNAS signal provides corrections for your GPS measurements and enhances the accuracy of your GPS receiver.

NB. WAAS signal is not available over African continent. So, you won’t pick this signal if you are using your GPS in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Southern Sudan, Burundi or any other African country.
