This paper focuses on location accuracy enhancement and performance comparison for global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) based positioning in light multipath propagation environments. The well-known linear iterative least-squares (LS) estimator algorithm performs the location of a ground (mobile) terminal. A sliding window and subspace decomposition (SD) based approach is proposed to generate coefficients for weighting the pseudorange measurements between the ground receiver and a set of satellites. Simulation results with real pseudorange measurement data (recorded at two different scenarios) demonstrate that the proposed SD-based LS algorithm significantly outperforms the existing LS algorithm, with root mean square error (RMSE) reduced by more than 0.7m.
