This course builds on the introduction to ?co-ordinate systems? in Geomatics I, and extends to cover co-ordinate transformations, 3-D co-ordinate systems and time variations. Student are also introduced to the method of least squares as a means of solving over-determined systems of equations, with applications in co-ordinate transformations. Topics include: introduction to error theory and error propagation; method of least squares - parametric case; two-dimensional co-ordinate systems; motions of the Earth; time; satellite orbits; three-dimensional co-ordinate systems and spherical trigonometry
