Expert group in GNSS positioning to be created by members of EuroGeographics

Jun 9, 2014 -- Members of EuroGeographics are to create a European platform for networking, sharing best practice and exchanging expertise on GNSS positioning.

Plans for the new Positioning Knowledge Exchange Network (KEN) were revealed at the Association’s recent Extraordinary General Assembly following a proposal by the Head Office for Geodesy and Cartography, Poland. Its focus will include: Maintaining a network of experts in satellite positioning and navigation; following the development of relevant technologies and practices; working on the most effective utilisation of Galileo services; and developing common standards, policies and guidelines for best practice.

Now EuroGeographics’ members will work to agree roles and joint actions through a cooperation agreement with the European Position Determination System (EUPOS), the Reference Frame Sub Committee for Europe (Euref) and the Council of European Geodetic Surveyors (CLGE). The new Positioning KEN will incorporate experts from all four organisations and will also invite other key players to participate.

“This is a really exciting addition to our range of benefits for members,” says EuroGeographics Executive Director and Secretary General, Dave Lovell OBE. “It demonstrates how they are driving the Association’s development to ensure its activities continue to meet their needs by reflecting emerging trends and the relevant interests of the European Institutions.”

“We look forward to strengthening our relationships with EUPOS, Euref and CLGE as we work together to create the uniform GNSS service for Europe.”

EuroGeographics’ KENs provide an open forum for its members and invited experts. Each focuses on an area of particular interest for National Mapping, Land Registry and Cadastral Authorities. These include Business Interoperability, Quality and Emergency Mapping.
