Spanish Mountain Bike routes powered by EGNOS

EGNOS for mountain biking

IMBA Spain has recently published a new version of its Signalling Manual, which establishes the procedure and associated methods to plan, prepare, certify, inspect and promote MTB centres, spaces and routes.

The Signalling Manual is used by Spanish companies and institutions as the reference guide to deploy guidance signals and information panels along routes that are either newly developed or re-inspected from time to time.

One of the most important tools utilized during trail signalling campaigns are GPS devices.

In the last version of the Signalling Manual, the use of EGNOS is highly recommended as a means to increase the accuracy of both surveyed signals and track logs, reducing potential errors and subsequent corrections when working with these data into Geographic Information Systems (GIS).
