High-accuracy GPS systems user consultation

Posted on: 01/08/2018

The General Lighthouse Authorities are conducting a survey to gauge current and future user requirements for their Differential GPS Service.

The consultation is to better understand how the GLA’s GPS differential correction service is being used. This mainly affects professional users of high-accuracy GPS such as businesses in maritime, as well as precision agriculture, surveying and civil engineering.

The GLA operate 14 Differential GPS reference stations which provide corrections to GPS, thereby enabling greater positional accuracy and integrity in the user’s position.

The authorities are now surveying users across a wide variety of sectors to better understand how the Differential GPS service is being used. The Differential GPS service currently provides corrections for GPS (single frequency) only, but the technology is being developed to enable corrections to be provided for all Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), should there be a requirement. The survey results will be used to establish current and future user needs.

It is important to understand that this is a survey about the Differential GPS service and not GPS / GNSS. The survey will take about five minutes to complete. All responses will be kept confidential and any identifiable information will be managed in accordance with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Data Protection laws.
