GPS is a new radio-wave positioning system, which allows the user to ascertain his position from waves transmitted from the GPS satellites. A system using GPS navigation sensors was applied to positioning of earthwork equipment. While the precision obtained in single-point positioning was only around 20m, the precision could be reduced to around 2m in differential positioning using two systems, precision that would allow the system to distinguish between loci of earthwork equipment.
