As highlighted in the fifth edition of the GSA’s popular GNSS Market Report, GNSS’ market penetration of the Mapping and Surveying segment has grown with the launch of Galileo Initial Services, which provides high-precision users positioning services with sub-decimetre level accuracy.

Some of the key trends identified in the Market Report include:
