Description

Precise Point Positioning (PPP) is one of the existing techniques used to estimate user positions from GPS observations. PPP can provide centimeter-level positional accuracy anywhere in the world by utilizing a single receiver without the need of having nearby reference stations or a virtual network. With the advent of additional constellations (GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou) the PPP technique continues to improve in achievable accuracies and availability. In this webinar, a brief overview of PPP will be discussed as will a comparison of similarities and differences between it and other GNSS positioning techniques. Several advantages of the use of PPP with and without multi-GNSS (MGNSS) observables will be presented including their current and future roles in land surveying. Finally, case studies highlighting practical applications of static and kinematic MGNSS PPP with be shown. 

Presenters

Ryan White is currently a Ph.D. candidate in the department of Geodesy and Geomatics Engineering at the University of New Brunswick (UNB), Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. Ryan is also a Bachelor of Science in Engineering alumnus of the Pennsylvania State University’s department of Surveying Engineering in Lehman, PA. His current research includes precise orbit, velocity, and acceleration determination of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites using GNSS observables as well as enhancement of the precise point positioning technique. Mr. White also regularly instructs undergraduate students at UNB in introductory Geomatics and has several years of experience as a land surveying technician.

Heather Nicholson is currently a graduate student in the department of Geodesy and Geomatics Engineering at the University of New Brunswick (UNB), Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. Heather is a 2015 graduate of the Pennsylvania State University’s department of Surveying Engineering. Her current research includes kinematic Precise Point Positioning (PPP) and GNSS-based atmospheric studies. She can often be found teaching geodesy and geomatics courses. Ms. Nicholson has also worked as a Land Surveying technician, including time as a Hollings Scholar for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
