Applanix Releases Mobile Mapping Software with Added Functionality

Applanix has introduced a major new release of POSPac MMS (Mobile Mapping Suite), its GNSS-aided inertial postprocessing software for mobile mapping and surveying applications.

The new release adds features and functionality for land-based mapping and surveying to the existing suite, making it fully equipped for processing mobile mapping data from the air, sea, and land platforms.

Applanix has introduced a major new release of POSPac MMS (Mobile Mapping Suite), its GNSS-aided inertial postprocessing software for mobile mapping and surveying applications.

The new release adds features and functionality for land-based mapping and surveying to the existing suite, making it fully equipped for processing mobile mapping data from the air, sea, and land platforms.

POSPac MMS uses a combination of GPS network and inertial postprocessing methods that work together to eliminate or reduce the restrictions currently associated with high-accuracy GNSS positioning.

The new version of the software also includes an module for using GPS network corrections. Based upon TrimbleVirtual Reference Station (VRS) technology, the Applanix SmartBase software can use the data logged from a network of public or private GPS reference stations to generate a set of GPS observables that correct for errors at the location of the remote receiver on the vehicle. These data, along with the rover receiver observables, are then post-processed with data from the inertial measurement unit (IMU) using the new Applanix IN-Fusion technology to simultaneously solve for the GPS ambiguities and the position and orientation of the vehicle.

According to Applanix, the tight integration of GPS carrier phases ambiguity resolution with the inertial data allows the software to recover from data outages in a very short timeframe.
