The CUT Laboratory of Geodesy has installed the first radar tide gauge station in Cyprus. The new station is located at the Old Port of Limassol and will be part of the national tide gauge network established by the Department of Lands and Surveys (DLS) in cooperation with the Cyprus University of Technology.

The new tide gauge station is an integrated system comprised of a state-of-the-art radar water level sensor and a meteorological station able to log measurements at regular intervals yielding a combined dataset of precise tidal and environmental information. This dataset will be used, amongst others, for the establishment of the national vertical datum and the monitoring and determination of Mean Seal Level (MSL) at very high accuracy.

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...
