GPS 2.0. – A real innovation in satellite positioning (Part 2)

In the previous post, we have introduced the challenges impacting network RTK GNSS surveying applications: Coordinates that are precise down to inches/centimeters are available for the user even within buildings or sites with limited sky visibility. The system keeps working properly in urban environments and within buildings, both are typical high multipath environments. The number ...


GPS 2.0. – A real innovation in satellite positioning (Part 1)

We have been witnessing a great improvement curve in satellite positioning in the last decades. The increasing number of satellites, shrinking hardware, smarter software and affordable prices have resulted in GNSS technology with RTK precision becoming a crucial, if not the most important tool in a surveyor’s toolbox.

This set-up, ...


Virtual reality and 3D point cloud technology

It is widely known that 3D point cloud technology is a fantastic and effective way of spatial data acquisition. Regarding the applications the opportunities are extensive, yet the basic demand normally is to derive some „traditional” mapping products like 2D plans, elevations, sections, profiles, etc. – a kind of static imagination of reality. In addition, ...
