Training course on Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS)

 


Department of Geodesy and Geoinformatics at Vienna University of Technology (TUW) has been responsible for this training course, which took place in the period of May 31 to June 11. 15 participants from 3 Western Balkan countries have attended the training course:

  1. Bilbil Nurce,  Polytechnic University of Tirana, Albania

  2. Skender Lipo,  Polytechnic University of Tirana, Albania

  3. Edlira Kola, University of Tirana, Albania

  4. Sonila Papathimiu,  University of Tirana, Albania 

  5. Edina Behic,  University of Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina

  6. Dzana Horozovic,  Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina

  7. Emina Kamber,  Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina

  8. Dani Rahimic,  University of Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina

  9. Adel Hajdarovic,  University of Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina

  10. Edin Hadzimustafic,  University of Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina

  11. Zoran Nedeljkovic,  University of Belgrade, Serbia

  12. Todorovic Drakul Miljanja,  University of Belgrade, Serbia

  13. Milan VrtunskiUniversity of Novi Sad, Serbia

  14. Dragana Popovic,  University of Novi Sad, Serbia

  15. Filip Sabo,  University of Novi Sad, Serbia


The training course has taught a number of topics on GNSS theory and practice such as:   

  • GNSS observation equations, tropospheric and ionospheric effects

  • signal linear combinations

  • data processing uisng Leica Geo-Office, Bernese software and NAPEOS

  • Precise Point Ppositioning (PPP)

  • RTK: concepts, network providers, measurements

  • Cooridnate time series: station velocities, reference frame constraints

  • GNSS augmentation: EGNOS and WAAS

  • GNSS status, future Galileo developments

In addition to lectures and practices, the training course organized two study visits to Conrad Observatory and RTK provider EPOSA, respectively.


Project coordinator, Huaan Fan, visited the training in Vienna and convened a project management meeting on June 10 with all partner university representatives. At the meeting, he distributed the duly signed partnership agreements between the coordinating institution (KTH) and all partner organizations. He went on to report progresses in ongoing project activities (equipment procurement, education database, stakeholder survey, etc) and also discussed future activities with the meeting participants.
