About the note

A differential Global Positioning System (dGPS) has been established at the Environmental Research Institute of the Supervising Scientist (eriss) to provide an accurate georeferencing, mapping and survey tool for the Alligator Rivers Region, Northern Territory, Australia. The dGPS was initially implemented as an integral part of a coastal monitoring program and is now used in many projects to provide accurate georeferenced information.
