DescriptionPrecise Point Positioning (PPP) is one of the existing techniques used to estimate user positions from GNSS observables. While similar in many ways to post-processed static and real-time kinematic differential GNSS positioning, PPP differs in ways that may offer certain distinct advantages to the land surveyor. In this webinar, a brief overview of PPP will be discussed as will a comparison of similarities and differences between it and other GNSS positioning techniques. Several advantages of the use of PPP will be presented including its current and future role in land surveying. Finally, a practical example of how to properly utilize the currently-available online PPP engines will be made. 

PresenterRyan White is currently a Master of Science in Engineering (MScE) candidate in the department of Geodesy and Geomatics Engineering at the University of New Brunswick (UNB), Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. Ryan has also earned a Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree from The Pennsylvania State University’s Department of Surveying Engineering in Lehman, PA. His current research includes integration of the Galileo Global Navigation Satellite System into UNB’s GNSS Analysis and Positioning Software (GAPS) free online Precise Point Positioning tool. He is also a major contributor to the overall development and enhancement of GAPS as a member of the GAPS Development Team. As well as having several years of experience as a land surveying technician, Mr. White regularly instructs undergraduate students at UNB in introductory Geomatics. 

Note: Members of other Professional societies such as PSPE, NSPS, ACSM, or other state surveying societies may register at the discounted price. In order to receive the necessary code, registrants must contact PSLS with proof of membership.
