  1. Scaled t distributions were fitted to the positional errors measured during the Fastloc-GPS accuracy tests. Maximum likelihood estimates and standard error (SEs) are provided for location μ F, scale σ F, and shape υ F for each spatial dimension and number of satellites used for the position calculation (#satellite bin)
