EURAMET Technical Guide on GNSS distance metrology

Project Description

The proposed technical guide,which brings GNSS-based distance measurements (Global Navigation Satellite Systems) under the umbrella of GUM-conformal measurement uncertainty treatment, is a product of the EMPIR GeoMetre project (Large-scale dimensional measurements for geodesy,18SIB01). Following a preliminary approval by TC-L, the remaining work towards publication of a GNSS related guide was considered sufficiently interesting to become registered as a length related project in the EURAMET database.

To validate the technical guide prior to publication, it will be peer-reviewed by two EURAMET experts that were selected by TC-L and not involved in 18SIB01.
These experts – from JV (Norway) and RISE (Sweden) – are not listed as participants in the current project.

Progress Report 2023-09-28

The concepts were presented at key surveying conferences. The submission of the draft to the EURAMET review is foreseen within the next months.
