GNSS valid

From Wikicap - European Commission

GNSS devices and VHR ortho imagery already validated/certified

The lists have been updated in order to take into account the new rules defined by Article 38 (4) of Commission Implementing Reg. (EU) No 809/2014 stating that “A single value buffer tolerance shall be defined for all area measurements performed using GNSS and/or orthoimagery. For this purpose the measurement tools used shall be validated for at least one validation class of buffer tolerance below the single value. However, the single tolerance value shall not exceed 1.25 m.”

As a consequence, only validated tools with a buffer tolerance at least <= 1 m can be use for parcel area measurement.

GNSS devices validated by Member States or device distributors

The measurements were carried out by the Member States (MS) in accordance with the JRC guidelines on test parcels selected by the MS. The statistical analysis of the measurements was made by JRC, or checked by JRC when the MS did the analysis by themselves. Information concerning the JRC tool validation method can be found [HERE]).

For the analyses, an xls template (with instructions) can be downloaded HERE. The spreadsheet must filled in with the area measurements and reference values (i.e. area and perimeter) of the parcel. A separate .xls file must be created and filled in for each of the tested parcels.

More information on the device settings, measurement method (number of positions per vertex) and protocol used during the validation test could be requested directly to the MS concerned.
