The interactive world map is an online tool to help find information about augmentation service providers that support Galileo. By clicking on each country, the map shows the names of the Galileo-ready providers along with the name and type of service and coverage.
Augmentation service providers map
Standard GNSS positioning is often affected by several errors. These errors can be corrected using augmentation services to provide a more accurate and precise position. With augmentation services, users can operate their receivers virtually anywhere on the globe and, by means of receiving data from a control centre, are able to achieve accuracies ranging from meter to centimetre-level, depending on the hardware, platform and application.
Today, there are different augmentation techniques based on the use of a network of ground-based reference or monitoring stations with known locations that enable to calculate corrections (e.g. differential corrections for RTK or clocks and orbits corrections for PPP. These corrections can then be disseminated, for instance, over the internet or satellites.
There is a wide range of GNSS augmentation service providers worldwide, tailored both for professional and consumer markets, some of them utilizing all available satellite constellations (GPS, Galileo, GLONASS and Beidou) to ensure consistent and uninterrupted coverage and provide solutions for all classes of GNSS based location services. These solutions can be utilised in a number of markets including: mapping, surveying, construction, agriculture, automotive or aviation, to name a few.
The augmentation service provider map is a thematic map updated on a quarterly basis that provides an easy way to visualize the service providers that are able to operate in each country. Clicking on each country shows the names of the Galileo-ready providers along with the name and type of service and coverage.
