On June 19, Pierre Héroux officially retired from the Canadian Geodetic Survey of Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) after spending nearly 35 years with this organization. Over these years, Pierre has been a key player in the GNSS community, from testing the first commercial GPS receivers to being an early instigator of precise point positioning (PPP). Pierre kindly accepted my invitation to write a recollection of the early days of PPP and how this positioning methodology evolved within the IGS.
