In GISCAD-OV CNIG, through the support of IGN Spain (third party in the project), will take part on GISCAD-OV in the WP4 (pilot projects), carrying out and coordinating field test campaigns for on-field validation stage.

CNIG will perform field campaigns in order to achieve a set of reliable control points (geodetic and cadastral benchmarks) with high quality ETRF00 coordinates where a comparison with the different techniques proposed in the project will be made. In a second stage, CNIG will coordinate and perform campaigns following the different strategies described in the proposal for validation (especially NRTK with Galileo frequencies in its local augmentation service, Galileo High Accuracy Services and PPP-AR multiple frequency instantaneous fixing when available).
