Applanix POSPac MMS 5.4

At INTERGEO 2010, Applanix has announced a new version of its post-processing software for Mobile Mapping and Positioning, POSPac MMS version 5.4. Designed to enhance the productivity of Mobile Mapping, the solution features an all-new Inertially-Aided Precise Point Positioning (IAPPP) engine and enhanced smoothing algorithm.       Precise Point Positioning (PPP) is an effective GNSS processing technique that uses precise clock and ephemeris information to converge to decimetre-level position accuracy without base stations or expensive commercial SBAS subscriptions. It is a cost-effective method of positioning for mobile surveys in remote areas or where centimetre level accuracy is not required.... (read more)
