Carlson Software is now offering Atlas GNSS global correction service in the latest release of its data-collection software SurvCE.

Using approximately 200 reference stations worldwide, Atlas produces its correction signals via L-Band satellites distributing coverage from 75° N to 75° S, ensuring Earth’s landmass is covered. Such ability makes it the most flexible service on the market to date, Carlson Software said.

“Atlas equals or excels beyond the performance standards of other services and interfaces seamlessly with Carlson SurvCE to boot,” said Karl Nicholas, special projects director at Carlson Software.

Atlas supports multiple RTK-capable GNSS receivers including the current Carlson BRx6. Through Carlson SurvCE’s library of compatible drivers, any third-party GNSS receiver using the Athena engine can also use Atlas.


  • Positioning Accuracy: Atlas provides positioning accuracies down to 2 cm RMS in certain applications
  • Positioning Sustainability: Cutting-edge position quality maintenance in the absence of correction signals
  • Convergence Time: Industry-leading convergence times of 10 – 40 minutes

Scalable Service Levels

  • H100: 100 cm 95 percent (50 cm RMS)
  • H30: 30 cm 95 percent (15 cm RMS)
  • H10: 8 cm 95 percent (4 cm RMS)
