    This deliverable presents Baltic Explorer, a collaborative GIS and spatial decision support system (SDSS) for the maritime spatial planning (MSP), that was designed, built, and studied in the BONUS BASMATI Work Package 5. Sec-tion 1 summarises the general concept, key functionalities, use tests and free release of the Baltic Explorer, and Sec-tion 2 describes and guides the usage of the system. Previ-ous deliverables and published or forthcoming scientific articles provide more information about the creation and assessment of the Baltic Explorer. Baltic Explorer is available for use at http://balticexplorer.eu and its source code at https://github.com/FGI-GEOINFO/Baltic-Explorer. Key functionalities of the Baltic Explorer: • User-friendly map interface • Multi-device usability • Multi-user access model • Workspaces for group work • Up-to-date spatial maritime data from a large num-ber of providers • Create, edit and add vector features Use tests of the Baltic Explorer: 1. MSP workshop, Umeå, Sweden 2. PhD course, Turku, Finland 3. MSP workshop, Riga. Latvia 4. MSP course, University of Turku, Finland 5. MSP course, University of Gothenburg, Sweden 6. Denmark

    This paper underlines the challenges of navigation in the Arctic from the user perspective by means of an online survey. The main target of the survey was to find out the users' views and real-life experiences on the challenges in navigation and geospatial information-based services in the Arctic region. The paper studies relations between the represented industry, encountered challenges and areas of operation. Navigation in the Arctic area and similar circumstances in high latitudes is known to be challenging in terms of weather conditions, lack of services and infrastructure. As the novel technologies, e.g., intelligent transport systems mature, the need for exact and timely geospatial information will increase. According to the results, the most significant challenges are uneven coverage of positioning, untimely weather information, and telecommunication issues. Although the number of respondents was lower than expected (83 complete responses), the results indicate the differences in navigation and location-based services between countries and public versus commercial actors. We found two major dependent variables (nationality and market segment), which are analyzed further. The results suggest guidelines for the future developments of the navigation and positioning services in the high latitudes.

    Proceedings of the European Navigation Conference
    This paper proposes a set of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for European GNSS (EGNSS)-based timing services that are relevant from the user perspective; these KPIs quantify the accuracy, integrity, and stability of the services. Furthermore, the instrumentation and procedures required for reproducing the threats and evaluating the proposed KPIs are described. The proposed test setup makes use of a precise time/frequency reference distributing a Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) realization and is intended for post-processing. The test results provide an indication of the performance of the envisioned Galileo and EGNOS timing services in terms of the proposed KPIs when the receiver is subject to various abnormal conditions.
