GNSS and Hydrography

A precise navigation system that has been fully operational only since 1995, yet has had such an impact on hydrography… it looks as if the future of these systems will make interesting reading. GNSS stands for Global Navigation Satellite System and has been dominated by GPS. All hydrographic surveyors will know how this has improved their productivity in the last decade. Today GNSS includes GPS and, to a lesser extent, Glonass. In the future it may well include modernised GPS signals, further Glonass, the European-funded Galileo system, and other satellite-based augmentation services. Not only does this scenario mean ‘more of... (read more)
