FGPS is proud to announce the release of our cloud based QC service. Users may now keep abreast of navigation data quality as acquisition progresses. The core elements of this service include a proprietary data compression algorithm which allows for fast data upload directly from the field without any loss of fidelity. New data is automatically detected and  processed on the server and made available on unlimited browsers within minutes of upload. QC parameters are established at the start of the survey and may be modified on demand as the survey progresses.

Please contact FGPS for more details of this service.
