Analyze Business Models for Implementation and Operation of a Statewide GNSSRTN
MetadataShow full item record
The Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), commonly known as the global positioning system, has become one of the fastest growing emerging technologies delivering location services to various sectors. The applications of geospatial data span every sphere of modern-day science and industry where geographical positioning matters. The list includes navigation, agriculture, surveying, construction, transportation, forestry, mining, and many others. The accuracy and precision of geospatial data using the GNSS Real-Time Network (RTN) technology enable advanced applications in many fields where geospatial data is used; and open the doors for new applications such as the emerging autonomous systems in transportation, mining, and agriculture. This research project is intended to provide information that would help the state’s efforts in the planning and implementation of the Montana GNSS-RTN system. Four major tasks were completed for this project, namely; state-of-the-art review, state-of-the-practice assessment, characterizing Montana existing GNSS-RTN infrastructure, and identifying and cataloging viable business models for statewide GNSS-RTN systems.
