Ginan: Analysis Centre Software
Geoscience Australia has developed an open-source Analysis Centre Software GNSS toolkit to process real-time geodetic data and deliver positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) services to Australians. This capability is called Ginan.
An alpha version of Ginan can be accessed through its page on GitHub (Ginan 1.0.0). This software will be progressively updated with new functionality.
This capability will enable positioning accurate to within 5 cm or better, when a user has access to equipment that can obtain a precise carrier phase observation and internet connection to access the positioning products.
This toolkit will manage the acquisition, processing and delivery of multi-GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems) data and related products and enable precise positioning for more consumer-ready applications.
Users have access to open-source software and products that enhance the accuracy of positioning. Industry, innovators and system integrators can use this system to develop new products and applications that use precise positioning, delivering the benefits to their customers and to the Australian public.
The software is currently under development. In 2022, a production version of the software will be made available as an open source. This will be in addition to Geoscience Australia’s existing real-time precise point positioning product files and correction streams.
