TerraPos Post-processing Software

The Norwegian company Terratec has introduced software capable of accurate positioning based on post-processing of GPS-observations, without the use of reference stations or DGPS services. Typical accuracy for kinematic applications are 3cm horizontally and 4cm vertically (RMS). This level of accuracy makes the software unique worldwide. TerraPos utilises precise orbits and clock corrections for the satellites, together with advanced error modelling to produce positions with impressing accuracy. Typpical RMS for a kinematic survey is 3cm horizontally and 4cm vertically. The result is an excellent tool for positioning in applications allowing for post-processing, such as airborne photogrammetric or Lidar operations, seabed... (read more)

Automated Processing of Oblique Imagery

Connectivity Graph to Cope with Tilted Views
Oblique multi-camera systems are rapidly maturing and expanding the market for airborne technology and services. Because datasets of oblique images are large, automated processing is a necessity. Here, the authors present a workflow for the automated orientation of large oblique blocks using a connectivity graph and discuss automated dense matching of oblique images. Oblique airborne multi-camera systems are increasingly complementing traditional vertical views. Previously hidden façades and building footprints are unveiled in oblique views, which makes oblique imagery useful for 3D city modelling and cadastral purposes as well as emergency rapid response and scene interpretation. In the past, the spotlight... (read more)

Magellan’s BLADE GNSS Signal Processing

Magellan (France) has announced its BLADE technology, a proprietary GNSS processing solution that makes possible centimetre-level accuracy for real-time and post-processing surveys and mapping operations. Magellan’s BLADE (Base Line Accurate Determination Engine) combines ranging and carrier phase data from two satellite systems, GPS and SBAS, for superior satellite coverage and signal reliability to enable rapid, centimetre-level solutions.   It is the first GNSS processing system that uses SBAS ranging and carrier phase measurements in the RTK data processing. These SBAS measurements, which are GPS-like, improve satellite geometry to allow centimetre-level accuracies to be achieved in a shorter time compared to... (read more)

NovAtel Releases Post-processing Software Version 7.80

NovAtel Inc. (Canada) has released its Version 7.80 GrafNav/GrafNetTM, GrafNav/GrafNet Static, GrafNav Lite and GrafMov post-processing software. This latest software release includes significant advancements such as Precise Point Positioning (PPP), enhanced GLONASS processing and other features. The new embedded PPP processor offers many advantages to users. It permits dual frequency carrier phase processing without a base station. Users can expect 10-40cm kinematic accuracies and 2-10cm static accuracies, although accuracies can vary depending on age of the data, time length of collection, satellite geometry, frequency of cycle slips, receiver type, measurement quality and other factors. Enhanced Glonass processing is another key... (read more)
