Cost Effective Positioning and Geo Data Seminar

20 April 2017, Novosibirsk, Russia

The Seminar was organized by FIG Commission 5. It was held within the frame of the XIII International Exhibition and Scientific Congress "Interexpo GEO-Siberia 2017" in Novosibirsk. The primary objective of the Seminar was to shape a vision for the future of cost-effective positioning technologies. The seminar was aimed at bringing developers of precise low-cost solutions, surveyors, and other potential users together.

The agenda of the seminar covered both hardware and software solutions. The following presentations were delivered at the Seminar:

  1. Leonid Lipatnikov, SSUGT, Novosibirsk, Russia
    An overview of cost effective technologies for high-precision positioning
  2. Stanislav Shevchuk, Karina Malyutina, Leonid Lipatnikov, SSUGT, Novosibirsk, Russia
    Prospects of using free software for GNSS measurements post-processing
  3. Volker Schwieger, Institute of Engineering Geodesy, University of Stuttgart, Germany
    Cost-Effective GNSS - FIG activities and IIGS Research
  4. Reiner Jäger, Lyudmila Gorokhova, Naznin Akter, Hochschule Karlsruhe, Germany
    Eberhard Messmer, Surveying Office, Stuttgart, Germany
    Integration of the sensors and mathematical models into a modern structure of data exchange for the complex 3D-geomonitoring of Stuttgart TV-tower
  5. Alexander Prusakov, A. I. Spiridonov, Center of Geodesy, Cartography and Spatial Data Infrastructure, Moscow, Russia
    Agenda of metrological service for ensuring measurement traceability in geodesy and cartography
  6. Li Zhang, Volker Schwieger, Institute of Engineering Geodesy, University of Stuttgart, Germany
    Investigation of a L1-optimized Choke Ring Ground Plane for a Low-Cost GPS Receiver-System

Access to the Seminar was open to all participants of Interexpo Geo-Siberia. The total number of attendees at the Seminar was more than 60.

We would like to thank all the participants for their active involvement and truly interesting and lively discussion.

Apart from interesting technical content there was a place for social events. Since the Seminar was aligned with Interexpo Geo-Siberia, all participants had an opportunity to enjoy a colorful performance - the annual dancing contest organized by SSUGT.
