Differential Global Positioning System (GPS) survey


BIMCO would like to raise awareness of the General Lighthouse Authorities’ (GLA’s) survey into the current and future users’ requirements for differential GPS service.

The GLA of the United Kingdom and Ireland operate 14 Differential GPS reference stations located around the British Isles that provide users with information with enhanced accuracy and integrity. The survey is trying to determine the current and future requirements of users.

The survey can be completed online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/29N3SX3. It should take no longer than 5 minutes to do so.
