Mr. Henning gave me a good grasp of the concepts of RTK and how it is achieved.

Good course, well presented but I could not figure out how to download or print the course notes.

Course Availability

This course is only available to trainees 365 days after purchase. It would need to be repurchased by the trainee if not completed in the allotted time period. This course is no longer available. You will need to repurchase if you wish to take the course again.

Description

Geospatial professionals must be aware of how their tools and programs work to evaluate their results and diagnose potential problems. This part of the four part series on real-time GNSS positioning will attempt to present and explain in simple terms how real time positioning works. After a short look at the current and near future state of the GNSS constellations, the concept of ambiguity resolution will be discussed noting some techniques used to resolve the unknown integer number of cycles using differencing and other methodology. Highlighted sections of the NGS guidelines for single base positioning will be will be shown and static positioning options will be briefly contrasted to the precisions obtainable with real-time methods. Additionally, a short look will be taken at the augmented autonomous GNSS positioning developments that are approaching usable survey-grade precisions with shortening initialization times.

Objectives
