Abstract RTK NetworksThis presentation will provide an overview of the current state of real-time GNSS-based positioning technology ranging from RTK, VRS and PPP- based positioning as well as forward-looking impact of the GNSS technology on map production. Geospatial workflows are increasingly being driven by the deliverables, which influence the selection of sensors, software and communication protocols as well as services.
Personal devices with soft-GNSS capabilities coupled with industry-focused apps are representing a new era of GNSS in positioning and mapping. Correction services together with site connectivity are enabling professionals to perform extremely accurate data collection, automated map generation and construction model placement as well as efficient project management through (near) real-time field and office communication.
