MINSK, 28 February (BelTA) – Belarus is about to start sharing GNSS data with the EUREF Permanent Network (EPN), the press service of the State Property Committee of Belarus told BelTA.
As from 1 March the Belarusian state enterprise Belgeodeziya will start uploading data to two Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) data processing centers. Belarus has been the only European country without a single EPN station up till now.
Instructed by the State Property Committee, Belgeodeziya has gone through the steps of adding four Belarusian GNSS stations to the EPN, which unites over 100 European agencies and universities.
Belarus' accession to the EPN is an important moment for Belarusian geodesists since they will be able to get direct access to international standards on the operation of permanent GNSS stations. It is the mandatory condition and the first step for including Belarusian stations into the international network.
