The lack of a comprehensive picture of sites affected by geohazards led to the conception of PROTHEGO, which will apply novel space technologies such as radar interferometry (InSAR), GNSS etc. to monitor monuments and sites in Europe which are inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List (WHL) and are potentially unstable due to geo-hazards.

In the frame of the PROTHEGO  (Protection of European Cultural Heritage from Geo-Hazards) JPI project, the Laboratory of Geodesy (LoG) has begun the first phase of the establishment of a precise geodetic network to monitor the impact potential Geo-Hazards (i.e. landslides or earthquakes) would have on the Khirokitia Neolithic Settlement.

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...
