This Frontier SI-led webinar, led by Positioning Engineer Chris Marshall, explores the technology of Satellite-Based Augmentation System (SBAS), the efforts to trial the technology in the resources and adjacent sectors since 2017, and lays out the roadmap for future SBAS infrastructure in Australia and New Zealand. Expect a robust discussion around the upcoming next-generation Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) Augmentation and its applications for the resources industry, including common use cases and case studies from the Test-bed.
This Geoscience Australia led webinar, led by Ryan Ruddick, explores the Positioning Australia program which is bringing freely available precise positioning services to users in all sectors of industry, including resources. This session describes the free AUSCORS RTK positioning services, including common application areas for the resources sector. Expect a high-level overview of the program and what it will bring to the table for GNSS users.
This Geoscience Australia led webinar, led by Nicholas Brown, provides a primer on the Datums and Reference frames that are used for delivering modern positioning services under the Positioning Australia Program. With improvements to the positioning accuracy delivered by new services, it is increasingly important for GNSS users to understand best practices for working with spatial data, avoiding data misalignments and integration headaches down the line. Expect a high-level technical session for users of all experience levels, from which they will gain an improved understanding of Datums and Coordinate Reference Systems necessary for precise spatial positioning.
The Satellite-Based Augmentation System (SBAS) will improve GPS accuracy to 10 centimetres! Find out how your organisation can achieve sub-metre accuracy on GPS data by listening to FrontierSI’s Positioning Engineers, Eldar Rubinov and Chris Marshall, as they discuss SBAS and what it means for the future of positioning and GPS accuracy.
Rapid Spatial Analytics
The Australian Geospatial-Intelligence Organisation Analytics Lab Program (AGO Labs), coordinated through FrontierSI, investigates a number of ways to better engage and work with industry. The November 2020 webinar outlined the challenge topics and application process, and allowed interested organisations to ask questions of both AGO and FrontierSI. The webinar took place on Friday 27 November 2020 | 10AM-11AM (AEDT). Learn more about AGO Labs and download resources here.
Listen to FrontierSI’s Positioning Engineer, Chris Marshall, discuss how SBAS uses similar technologies to other high-precision correction services people might be familiar with. It leverages an entire network of continuously operating reference stations around the ground area. In Australia and New Zealand, it uses the data from the network of Continuously Operating Reference Stations (CORS) and integrates all the different measurements to compute corrections for the region. Once the data is sent to the processing center, it’s uploaded to a satellite, followed by a downlink from that satellite to the end-users. The MapScaping Podcast is a weekly podcast featuring interesting people doing amazing work in the geospatial world.
