Geospatial World Forum in Rotterdam. The workshop, entitled E-GNSS: Benefits and Key Features for Geospatial Users, will take place during the Impact of Geospatial Information on Society and Economy session, scheduled for 24 May 2016 from 13:30 – 18:00.

Topics include:

Status updates on the E-GNSS programme timeline, Galileo frequencies, services description, and more
Synergies between GNSS and remote sensing, in particular between Galileo and the Copernicus programme
E-GNSS key features and benefits for geospatial applications, with a focus on such high-accuracy applications as the Galileo Open Service and the Galileo Commercial Service, and user support via the Galileo and EGNOS service centres
R&D funding opportunities for industry and receiver manufacturers, including the Horizon 2020 and Fundamental Elements programmes
Discussion and brainstorming on Galileo adoption and advantages of its signal characteristics
The workshop aims to highlight the status, services and key features of E-GNSS as it applies to the geospatial community. The objective is to stimulate dialogue on the benefits of Galileo in geospatial applications and the advantages of Galileo adoption at the equipment level. Additionally, the ‘big picture’ role of GNSS, in particular synergies between Galileo and Copernicus, will also be highlighted.
