With the aim of improving the accuracy of GPS devices from the current 5-10 metres to 10 centimetres, Australia and New Zealand are developing a new, regional satellite-based augmentation system (SBAS) using satellite and ground-based infrastructure.

This webinar will describe some of the ways in which the Australia-New Zealand SBAS will unlock new capabilities for GIS and mapping users, demonstrate these benefits for users across multiple industry sectors, and outline the level of performance achieved by the system during testing.

SBAS offers significant and exciting opportunities for all major sectors of industry, including aviation, maritime and terrestrial use. By leveraging the new corrections signals, GIS and mapping users will now be able to capture spatial data with sub-metre accuracy and greatly improved precision compared to standalone GNSS.

This will involve a demonstration of mapping with a low-cost receiver prototype and a commercial off-the shelf receiver, to highlight the achievable level of accuracy and precision.

Please note the webinar start times:
12:30pm (Australian Eastern Daylight Time)
12:00pm Adelaide | 11:30am Brisbane | 11:00am Darwin
9:30am Perth, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur | 8:30am Jakarta

Highlights

  • Capturing spatial data with sub-metre accuracy and improved precision compared to standalone GNSS
  • Standard SBAS L1 service already in use across Australia and New Zealand
  • Measurement and monitoring of features at a higher spatial resolution
  • Streamlining the process of field-to-office data capture
  • Sub-metre real-time GNSS positioning for GIS data collection using ArcGIS Collector and a compatible SBAS receiver
