LONDON – Applanix introduced POSPac MMS V6, its latest version of office software for mobile mapping.  Featuring full support for GPS and GLONASS satellite observables with its industry-leading IN-Fusion technology and SmartBase Virtual Reference Station processing engines, POSPac MMS V6 is designed to improve the accuracy of mobile mapping from moving vehicles of all types.  The improved accuracy is achieved by unique processing engines that automatically select the best possible network of available satellites and base stations when generating a positioning solution.

POSPac MMS V6 is the latest release of Applanix’ GNSS-aided inertial post-processing software for mobile mapping. The software’s SmartSelect feature automatically determines the optimal network of reference stations for producing the highest accuracy positioning by taking into account GPS and GLONASS satellite availability.  If GPS and GLONASS provide a superior solution than GPS-alone, the POSPac will automatically integrate the GLONASS observables.

The new solution delivers new benefits such as:

  • Increased accuracy:  When access to GPS satellites is limited, such as at higher latitudes or in urban canyons, SmartSelect combines satellites from GPS and GLONASS to make the best network with the smallest dilution of precision (DOP).
  • Increased productivity:  By eliminating periods of high DOP, surveying is completed faster.
  • Better performance:  Survey vehicles of all types can maintain superior networks even when operating in poor GPS environments.

“By automatically using the best possible configuration of GPS and GLONASS satellites in its tightly-coupled solution, POSPac MMS V6 provides a significant improvement in accuracy and robustness for mobile mapping applications, particularly for those in traditionally poor GPS environments,” said Edith Roy, development manager of POSPac MMS at Applanix. “The launch of POSPac MMS Version 6 continues our commitment to provide customers with innovative software solutions.”
