Abstract The accessibility of positioning information derived from Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) is arguably one of the main drivers that has transformed the way spatial data is currently generated and consumed. As the form factor and power consumption of GNSS enabled devices starts to scale down, the technology will further become pervasive and ubiquitous. This is applicable to both safety and convenience related applications. Depending on what receiver is used, the correctness and reliability of the positioning information may greatly vary and end users may not necessarily be aware of the capabilities and limitations of the receiver being used. In this respect, the blind reliance of end users toward this technology has raised concerns within the GNSS community. As a part of a broader study on end user needs for GNSS testing, a survey was conducted to investigate the level of awareness amongst end users towards GNSS performance. This paper elaborates on the results of the survey. The findings of this study, together with this needs analysis are used as a basis for principles and recommendations of end user GNSS testing standards and certification guidelines in the context of Australia.
