PPP-RTK & Open Standards Symposium outcomes

16th April 2012

PPP-RTK & Open Standards Symposium was held on 12 – 13 March in Frankfurt, Germany, hosted by Federal Agency for Cartography and Geodesy BKG Germany. The organizers were nicely surprised with the enormous interest of the participants - 180 experts from 30 countries took part at a two-day symposium on Precise Point Positioning (PPP) for Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) GNSS applications. It's obvious, that PPP is really the hot topic in surveying these days! yes

Under the auspices of RTCM, IAG and FIG, the symposium's aim was to share knowledge, experiences and innovative ideas concerning the development of Open Standards for PPP toward RTK accuracy. The symposium provided information on the development of associated real-time GNSS services for PPP support.

Mr. Peter Teunissen, representing the CRCSI as its Positioning Program’s Science Director wrote an interesting report bringing the review of the symposium with the highlights of the programme. Please find the report and learn about the PPP-RTK &Open Symposium outcomes.
