New Precise Point Positioning Module comes to Carlson SurveyGNSS

Carlson SurveyGNSS, Carlson Software’s simple, yet powerful data post-processing software, is now enhanced by Precise Point Positioning (PPP) as an add-on module. With the new Carlson module, PPP, users can post-process using a single receiver.

PPP adds precise GNSS station positioning capabilities for a single GNSS receiver operating autonomously. It is useful for obtaining submeter to centimeter level absolute positioning accuracies. Highest accuracies require long-term (1-2 hours or more) of continuous dual frequency carrier phase observations. SurveyGNSS PPP then weighs the different observation types (code and carrier phase, various GNSS) according to a variance component estimation.

“Position results are obtained using a robust estimation algorithm,” says Rob van Etten, Carlson SurveyGNSS Product Manager. “SurveyGNSS PPP module can also process single frequency observations.”

To derive coordinates referenced to another time and/or reference frame, users may wish to employ available geodetic utilities to transform positional coordinates across time and between spatial reference frames.

Designed for surveyors and positioning professionals, Carlson SurveyGNSS achieves high accuracy results for computing quality vectors and resultant positions. SurveyGNSS conveniently and reliably works with Carlson SurvCE and SurvPC data collection software and with Carlson’s office design software, utilizing an intuitive user interface.
