A positioning of the neutrino detector SuperKamiokande (SK) was made for a long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment planned at KEK. For positioning, Global Positioning System (GPS) was employed. It has been demonstrated that GPS is of practical use for measuring the positions of SK and KEK, being 250 km distance from each other, to a better resolution. The geodetic coordinates at the SK center were obtained to be Lat. 36°25′32.5862″ N., Long. 137°18′37.1241″ E., H. 371.839 m in the global ellipsoidal coordinate system, WGS-84. The obtained coordinates are based on the coordinates given at a triangulation point at the KEK site. The present work will be fed back for constructing the neutrino beam line.
