After the launch of 25 July 2018, the Galileo constellation counts 26 satellites, progressing towards full operational capacity. Mapping and surveying professionals can already take advantage the services Galileo offers. With many receivers and reference networks (RTK and PPP) having integrated Galileo, the surveying community can benefit from added value such as easier mitigation of multipath errors; higher signal-to-noise ratio; increased availability, continuity and reliability; and better operation in challenging environments.
To help ensure that the mapping and surveying community is positioned to take full advantage of all that Galileo has to offer, the GSA and EuroGeographics are holding a free webinar. Scheduled for 10 September 2018, the webinar will provide the latest on Galileo developments and services as they related to high-precision positioning and surveying. Topics to be covered include:
- Status of European GNSS programmes (timeline, frequencies, services description)
- The latest in market and technology trends for mapping and surveying
- Key features and benefits of E-GNSS, with the focus on high-accuracy applications (Galileo Open Service (OS) and the Galileo High Accuracy Service (HAS))
- The European GNSS Service Centre as the interface between Galileo and its users
- Galileo integration and adoption in equipment and by augmentation service providers
- Potential use of authentication in the surveying domain
- R&D opportunities for industry and receiver manufacturers (Horizon 2020, Fundamental Elements)
There will also be ample time for questions and answers.
The webinar is open to all surveying and mapping users, including private enterprises and public organisations, as well as interested stakeholders. You can register for this not-to-be-missed event here.
