The following guidelines were developed by the National Geodetic Survey (NGS) for performing Global Positioning System (GPS) surveys that are intended to achieve ellipsoid height network accuracies of 5 cm at the 95 percent confidence level, as well as ellipsoid height local accuracies of 2 cm and 5 cm, also at the 95 percent confidence level. See Appendix A for information about local and relative accuracies. These guidelines were developed in a partnership with Federal, state, and local government agencies, academia, and private surveyors and are the result of processing various test data sets and having extensive discussions with various GPS users groups. We are confident that these guidelines, if followed, will result in achieving the intended accuracy. Additional tests may show that some of these guidelines can be relaxed. These guidelines are intended for establishing geometric vertical control networks. These guidelines will be expanded in the future to include the establi.....
