"This book is by far the most comprehensive and orderly treatment of the subject. It is the work of experts with a wealth of both theoretical and practical experience with the subject and its connecting disciplines. It is an integral work... concepts and notation are at the same consistent level throughout the book. Quality of Service (QoS) is an absolutely critical part of any telecommunication services. This work fills a gap in the literature of what possibilities there are for satellites in providing global Internet services." Excerpted from the Foreword by Raymond L. Pickholtz, The George Washington University
Bridge the gap between theoretical education and practical work experience with this hands-on guide to GNSS, which features: * A clear, practical presentation of GNSS theory, with emphasis on GPS and GLONASS * All the essential theory behind software receivers and signal simulators * Key applications in navigation and geophysics, including INS aiding, scintillation monitoring, earthquake studies and more * Physical explanations of various important phenomena, including the similarity of code delay and phase advance of GNSS signals, and negative cross-correlation between scintillation intensity and phase variations. Whether you are a practising engineer, a researcher or a student, you will gain a wealth of insights from the authors' 25 years of experience. You can explore numerous practical examples and case studies and get hands-on user experience with a bundled real-time software receiver, signal simulator and a set of signal data, enabling you to create your own GNSS lab for research or study.
A fascinating and vital area of research, the geography of information describes the role of information as both economic and commercial product and its distribution and movement across boundaries of cyberspace and conventional geography. Written by a pioneer in telecommunications geography research, this prize winning title (AAG award 2003) applies information geography to the world of high-tech, examining the latest wrinkles in the Internet, Silicon Valley, mobile telephony, and other key areas.  <ul> <li>the first book to provide both a context for the geography of information and a critical overview of recent research. <li>Includes location-specific references and case studies. <li>Examines the information society, information economy, telecommunications and its geographical impact. </ul>
