I would like to understand what GNSS is used for? Can I download it from the website and use it for my work? I am not familiar with it. Does it come with the GPS?

Does it come with horizontal accuracy that can I use to verified the points on the surface?

If GNSS is not the case, then what other option do I have for the data that I need?

GNSS stands for Global Navigation Satellite System, and is the standard generic term for satellite navigation systems that provide autonomous geo-spatial positioning with global coverage. This term includes e.g. the GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, Beidou and other regional systems. GNSS is a term used worldwide The advantage to having access to multiple satellites is accuracy, redundancy and availability at all time.


To use GNSS you need a device that can support all the GNSS frequencies and software to capture your data for processing the signals.

An example (there are others) is a device called bad elf pro https://bad-elf.com/pages/be-gps-3300-detail

Stationary high precision GNSS as low as 1m out of the box with PPP in regions with SBAS coverage.

(*disclaimer have used this device in the field with good results in the sub $500 budget)
