Precision GPS

According to a new market research report entitled ‘Mid and High Level Precision GPS Market by Type (Differential Grade and Survey Grade), Application (Precision Farming, Mining, Construction, Oil & Gas) and Geography – Global Forecast to 2020,’ published by MarketsandMarkets, the mid- and high-level precision GPS market is expected to reach $3.09 Billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 16.36% between 2015 and 2020.

Centimetre-level high precision GPS positioning systems, based on networked Real Time Kinematics GPS (RTK-GPS) are being commercially operated across the world. A recently devised method at sub metre or decimetre accuracy, which is more convenient and uses a low cost and compact code-ranging GPS receiver, is being used to achieve better precision and accuracy in GPS products.

Both of these methods significantly reduce the time and cost to produce precise satellite imagery based on Ground Control Points (GCP), as well as to update maps in a geo-centric coordinate, wherein it is necessary to use satellite imagery with GPS. This report particularly focuses on the mid- and high-level precision GPS market.
