Recreational-Grade GNSS Receivers for Resource Mapping

GeoBC developed training materials for users utilizing recreational-grade (consumer grade) GNSS receivers - such as Garmin or Magellan handheld models.

The materials are designed for people who have an interest in knowing more about using recreational/consumer grade GNSS receivers for general navigation and route planning. This course does not provide full knowledge about GNSS, Geodesy, data processing, etc. However, it is developed for those people requiring some basic knowledge and field experience in order to make informed decisions in the field while collecting GNSS-referenced data.
