Visualisation of Data is an important aspect in the ESA D/OPS Navigation Office: Various Satellite and ground station configurations need to be displayed, illustrating cases for design, analysis and operation of GNSS-based systems. Moreover, numerical data as output from GNSS system monitoring, simulation and post-processing need a graphic visualisation in order to allow for easy analysis and interpretation of data. Finally, graphic visualisation is the enabling feature for communication, be it in professional terms or for public outreach.In order to fundamentally improve this situation, the NAViS initiative undertakes to harmonise and standardisethe visualisation tasks in the Navigation Office, considering the visualisation processes end-to-end, starting at the data sources,progressing to the analysis and processing needs of data to be visualised, and finally focusing on the data visualisation properly speaking.For this purpose, a multitude of visualisation tools has emerged in OPS-GN over decades, reflecting the variety of visualisation tasks, heritage systems, and working approaches. While satisfying the individual visualisation requirements one by one, itisthe multitude of tools and solutions together with the variety of interfaces, implementation approaches and final solutions, which have led to an issue of overall efficiency, reproducibility, and homogeneity:
