After years of development, as the representative of GNSS, GPS technology has been gradually replacing the conventional triangulation techniques and has become the main means of access to ground control point coordinates. From the initial decimeter magnitude to the current sub-centimeter or even millimeter level, the coordinate precision of ground points has been highly improved upon…

Galileo is Europe’s contribution to the multi-GNSS to provide a highly accurate, guaranteed global positioning service under civilian control. Offering dual frequencies as standard, Galileo is expected to deliver extremely good realtime positioning accuracy. From users’ point of view, availability of Galileo’s signal would help in achieving a multi- GNSS environment for redundancy and system independence.
