Applanix Introduces POSPac MMS V6.2 Software for Improved Productivity in Mobile Mapping Applications

Achieve robust high-accuracy positioning with greater efficiency when a GNSS base station network is not available.

Richmond Hill, ON, Canada – 22 April 2013 – Applanix, a world leader in products and solutions for mobile mapping and positioning, introduced today POSPac™ MMS V6.2, its latest generation of industry-leading software for directly georeferencing mobile mapping sensors using GNSS and inertial technology. Featuring new Applanix In-Fusion™ Multi-Single Base Processing, POSPac MMS V6.2 is designed to improve the productivity and accuracy of mapping from mobile platforms in the air, on land or at sea.
In-Fusion Multi-Single-Base Processing is designed for customers who need the highest level of Differential GNSS position accuracy and perform long, linear projects such as power line corridors, long highways or stretches of coastline. During these projects, a GNSS base station network may not be available, or the geometry of the network so weak that an Applanix SmartBase™ solution—which uses existing reference stations to achieve high accuracy over longer distances—is not viable. In these cases, In-Fusion Multi-Single-Base Processing allows base stations to be established along the full length of the travel path and makes optimal use of the nearest base station at all times.
Customers can now take advantage of robust tightly coupled IN-Fusion Processing without the need to break the project up into multiple segments for each base station to attain the highest accuracy.

“In addition to IN-Fusion Multi-Single-Base Processing, POSPac MMS V6.2 includes new features designed to increase productivity, efficiency and ease-of-use. The Coordinate Conversion tool included allows users to choose from a number of local reference frames for inputting base station coordinates,” said Edith Roy, Development Manager of POSPac MMS at Applanix. “POSPac MMS Version 6.2 demonstrates our commitment to providing customers with not only the most advanced software solutions for mobile mapping applications, but also the easiest to use.”
POSPac MMS V6.2 can be purchased through Applanix’ global sales network. The software is available as an upgrade to all POSPac users currently under a maintenance contract. For more information, visit:
