Waypoint post-processing software

Waypoint software is an industry-leading, professional post-processing portfolio trusted by the companies building maps for the world. Waypoint software leverages Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and inertial navigation systems (INS) data to generate a source of truth for post-mission trajectories and mapping. Built on Hexagon | NovAtel's decades-long legacy in post-processing algorithm development, Waypoint software refines GNSS-only or GNSS+INS data by processing forward and reverse in time, then combining and smoothing the results to maximise accuracy and signal availability for applications across land, air and sea.  

The software streamlines the process for users to quickly input and refine data, then use built-in plotting and quality control tools to assess the solution's viability and reliability. Waypoint software delivers complete control of your results, exporting in the data format, rate and coordinate frame your application requires.

Key features include: 

  • PPP corrections and differential GNSS – also known as post-processed kinematic (PPK) – processing modes 
  • Loosely coupled or tightly coupled GNSS+INS processing 
  • Flexible and secure licencing for the duration and level of processing you need 
  • Support for NovAtel products, various third-party products and RINEX data format 
  • Built-in application processing profiles that automatically tune processing according to your application’s inertial characteristics and IMU type  
  • A Command Line Interface (CLI) and Software Development Kit (SDK) available for users to develop and customise their entire processing workflow and enable post-processing at scale 

Waypoint software is used by mapping companies, R&D companies developing autonomy systems, marine surveyors working nearshore, and post-processing-as-a-service integrators requiring full customisation across environments and applications. No matter your application, Waypoint software has a product and subscription that meets your post-processing needs.
