Abstract

Current vehicle location methods transmit absolute geographic location data to report a radio's current location. Due to the large size of the data, it is not practical or it is wasteful of control channel capacity to send the data on the site's control chan- nel. What is needed is a means to encode and com- press the location data in a method such that it becomes practical to transmit the data on the site's control channel.
