  abstract =     "Transformation of coordinates usually invokes
                 level-wised processes wherein several sets of
                 complicated equations are calculated. Unfortunately,
                 the accuracy may be corrupted due to the accumulation
                 of inevitable errors between the transformation
                 processes. This paper presents a genetic-based method
                 for generating regressive models for direct
                 transformation from global positioning system (GPS)
                 signals to 2-D coordinates. Since target coordinates
                 for a GPS application can be obtained by using simpler
                 transformation formulas, the computational costs and
                 inaccuracy can be reduced. The proposed method, though
                 does not exclude systematic errors due to the
                 imperfection on defining the reference ellipsoid and
                 the reliability of GPS receivers, effectively reduces
                 the statistical errors when the accurate Cartesian
                 coordinates are known from the independent sources.
                 From the experimental results where the target datums
                 TWD67 is investigated, it seems that the proposed
                 method can serve as a direct and feasible solution to
                 the transformation of GPS coordinates.",
