Base PPP and Rover questions

Francis Pelletier asked 2 weeks ago

Hi,
I would like to try a set of Ardusimple boards for some tests, but I have some questions first. I am planning to use a base to observe a point for 4-8h and perform a PPP using NRCAN, and a rover to collect points that will later be corrected using the PPP.

  • The serial datalogger to microSD states you need an Xbee board that supports it. Am I good using a LR Xbee? 
  • Where do I set the antenna height prior to recording the data? (question for both base and rover)
  • Anyone here used NRCAN with the survey antenna and got good results? Care to share?
  • Am I better off using an arduino or a raspberry pi as boards?
  • How do you correct your rover points with the PPP solution after the fact? With Trimble they have online tools and software. RTKLIB?
  • What is the workflow for the base setup? web interface to set it up?

Thank you all for your help.

Hola Francis. En lo único que te puedo ayudar es en lo de la altura de la antena. Actualmente estoy usando el registrador de datos en serie a microSD y no existe información en cuanto en dónde configurar la atura de la antena. Lo único que se puede hacer es tratar de agregar dicha información en lo RINEX convertidos con RTCONV. Otra solución que pienso implementar es adquirir un colector de datos con el software SURVCE, que a partir de su versión 6.04, tiene soporte para ZED F9P.  En SURVCE antes de comenzar la encuesta (Cinemática o Estática) el programa solicita configurar la altura de la antena y otros parámetros.
