Mapping & Surveying

EGNOS is a cost-effective, solution for the mapping and surveying sector providing sub-metre level accuracy with minimal investment. EGNOS is contributing to the growing use of GNSS in real time mapping solutions, as for GIS and many mapping applications sub-metre-level accuracy is enough. EGNOS provides added value by enhancing GNSS positioning, it is free of charge, and most of the devices used for mapping are EGNOS-ready.

EGNOS eliminates the need for complex and costly equipment, and software solutions and investment in the infrastructure of augmentation service providers. As a result, applications such as thematic mapping for small and medium municipalities, forestry and park management, inventories and maintenance for utility infrastructures (e.g. electrical power lines, pipelines, highroads signals) can benefit from EGNOS service.

EGNOS for MAPPING & SURVEYING

EGNOS:

  • Is an effective option for a wide range of mapping applications
  • Is free and does not require any subscription
  • Covers the majority of Europe, with no blank spots (including natural and protected areas where no GPRS coverage is available)
  • Allows real time positioning
  • Provides system integrity, supplying information on the reliability of GPS signals
  • Most GNSS devices used for mapping are EGNOS-ready
