GPS coordinate transformations and their use in gravimetry
MetadataShow full item record
Geodetic coordinates on Australian maps are referenced to the Australian Geodectic Datum 1984 (AGD84). Topographic elevations are referred to the Australian Height Datum (AHD). Conversely, GPS yields 3-D Cartesian coordinates and coordinate differences in the World Geodetic System 1984 (WGS84). The difference between coordinates of the same point on the Earth's surface varies between 150 m to 200 m over continental Australia. This study presents a method of transforming between GPS (WGS84) and AGD84 latitude, longitude and AHD. This permits GPS-aided gravity data to be integrated with other geophysical data referred to the AGD84. A new rigorous formula to simultaneously determine the latitude, free-air and slab Bouguer corrections from GPS and geoid information is derived. It is demonstrated that, if an incorrect elevation datum is used for gravimetric data reduction, a different gravity anomaly is produced.

Rationale, design and methods for a randomised and controlled trial of the impact of virtual reality games on motor competence, physical activity, and mental health in children with developmental coordination disorderStraker, Leon; Campbell, Amity; Jensen, Lynn; Metcalf, Debbie; Smith, Anne; Abbott, R.; Pollock, Clare; Piek, Jan (2011)Background: A healthy start to life requires adequate motor development and physical activity participation. Currently 5-15% of children have impaired motor development without any obvious disorder. These children are at ...
