Applanix has released its POSPac MMS 8 GNSS-aided inertial post-processing software for georeferencing data collected from cameras, LIDARs, multi-beam sonars, and other sensors on mobile platforms.
The unit, introduced at the InterGEO trade fair in Hamburg, Germany, uses Trimble’s CenterPoint RTX subscription service. The Trimble CenterPoint RTX service allows land, air, marine, and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) platforms to achieve centimeter-level accuracy within one hour after data collection with just an internet connection, the company said.By Inside GNSS
Trimble has released the SX10 scanning total station that merges high-speed 3D scanning, imaging technology, and total station measurements for surveyors, the company said.
"This is the top one or two [products] we have launched in the 20 years I’ve been here," said Ron Bisio, Trimble geospatial division vice president, at a media day in Westminster, Colorado, October 5.By Inside GNSS

NGS will be hosting three events, each one providing a venue for NGS to share information about its products and services as well as hear from its customers across the public and private sectors.By Inside GNSS
In the past 20 years GPS has simultaneously revolutionized both our modern infrastructure (by providing real-time navigation, mapping, and timing support) and our geodetic/surveying capabilities (by providing millimeter/centimeter-level positioning). At this point, most of the GNSS innovations we expect to see in the next decade will come from calculating positions more accurately and faster, while expanding from GPS to use of all available GNSS signals.By Inside GNSS
