Geoscience Australia has announced the extension of its National Positioning Infrastructure Capability (NPIC) agreements with the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads, RTKNetwest and Aptella.

The agreement provides for continued open access to 122 continuously operating reference stations (CORS) across Australia.

The CORS provide corrections that are applied to GNSS signals in order to boost the accuracy and reliability positioning services, and are widely used by the geospatial sector, particularly for surveying.

In its June industry update email, Geoscience Australia says the extended agreements “demonstrate our commitment to maintaining and enhancing national positioning infrastructure, benefiting industry professionals and wider community”.

“By ensuring uninterrupted access to these CORS, we aim to foster innovation, improve operational efficiency, and support the growing demands of the user community across Australia.”
