Positioning Adventures In Nottingham

A large scale experiment of the joint IAG/FIG committee on Ubiquitous Positioning

In May 2012, members from 5 universities around the globe were gathered in the premises of Nottingham Geospatial Institute (NGI) to carry out a series of experiments on Ubiquitous Positioning. Multiple scenarios were tested using multi-sensor configurations on a variety of custom platforms (i.e. train, vehicle, and pedestrian platforms).

How to use the NGS Beta GEOID18 web map

This column discusses the results of the National Geodetic Survey (NGS) beta hybrid Geoid18 model and the differences between the beta model and the official hybrid geoid model, Geoid12B. It provides examples to explain the symbology of the Beta Geoid18 Web Map. GEOID18 will be the last hybrid geoid model that NGS will create before NAVD 88 is replaced by the North American-Pacific Geopotential Datum of 2022 (NAPGD2022). I encourage users to access, investigate and become familiar with the...

Anti-jam, anti-spoof readied for European market

New initiatives from the Navigation Innovation and Support Programme (NAVISP), a program of the European Space Agency (ESA), have targeted counter-jamming and counter-spoofing efforts, as Europe’s Galileo program gains progressive foothold in the marketplace, particularly in safety-critical systems such as driverless cars. “We are looking for new and disruptive ideas in navigation and that is why we created NAVISP,” said ESA Director General Jan Wörner. GIDAS is a scalable and flexible...
