We present the trigonometric parallax, proper motion, and structure of three methanol masers from the Southern Hemisphere Parallax Interferometric Radio Astrometry Legacy Project (SπRALS). All three masers have better than 5% parallax accuracy, which we attribute to the new inverse MultiView calibration technique.
