What is the gravitational field strength actually measuring? Is it the force that an object experiences at a particular point in the field? Also whats the difference between the gravitational field strength and the force of gravitation?

The gravitational field strength is a measure of force per kilogram at a given point in the gravitational field (hence its units, Nkg^-1, or ms^-2). As such the relationship between the force of gravitation and the gravitational field strength is F = mg.
