About Dr. Van Sickle
With many years of experience, I’ve advised global companies (Anadarko, IHS Energy, Microsoft, Jeppesen, Digital Globe, and many more) in geospatial matters. I’ve created and led departments, managed creation of new programs, and developed systems used around the globe. I earned my Ph.D. in geospatial engineering from the University of Colorado, and am an Assistant Teaching Professor at Penn State University and Lecturer at the University of Colorado (Denver).
Best Practices for GPS Today
This seminar is about making explaining some elements important to RTN operation and proposing some practical real-time best practices.
GPS Modernization and GNSS
Within a decade there may be as many as 80 navigational satellites in orbit. What will that mean from the user’s point of view?
Some assert that the Public Land Survey System, PLSS, is a coordinate system. Others strongly maintain that it is certainly not.
Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT)
The systems to determine location, find the way from one place to another and supply accurate time synchronization have expanded and improved substantially in recent years.
Coordinates and Geodesy
Coordinates? Press a few buttons on a computer and they are automatically imported, exported, rotated, translated, collated, annotated and served up in any format you choose with no trouble at all. There really is nothing to it. Why have a seminar about coordinates?
