At this point, I assume you already have your own RTK base station up and running. If not, please set one up first. You could refer to our blog post below.  How to setup a RTK Base station using a TOP168(u-blox ZED-F9P) GNSS Receiver? NTRIP is the industry standard for streaming RTCM correction data from the RTK base station over the internet. These RTCM correction data can be accessed by your RTK rovers as long as they have internet/network access.  I found a simple, straightforward and free of charge way to implement that. Please refer to the below system diagram.  1. Download the free...

How to setup a RTK Base station using a TOP168(u-blox ZED-F9P) GNSS Receiver?

Posted by jack wu on

Real Time Kinematics (RTK) technology could help to acquire the position in extremely high accuracy, however, RTK relies on RTCM correction data from a base station. If you couldn’t access a RTK base station in your area, setting up your own could be a practical alternative. In this instruction, we will step by step explaining how to set up a TOP168 GNSS Receiver as a RTK base station.   1. Download and install the configuration tool  If you already have “u-center” software installed, please go to section 2 directly. If not, you need to download it from the u-blox website.https://www.u-blox.com/en/product/u-centerFor TOP168 or another ZED-F9P...

How to get a very precise coordinate of your RTK base station?

Posted by jack wu on

Any error in the base station position will directly translate into rover position errors, therefore the base station position accuracy is very important. To acquire a high precise location of your base station, PPK is one of the most popular methods. We use a TOP168 RTK base station in this document. If you have another u-blox ZED-F9P GNSS receiver, you could also use this document for reference. 1. Download and install the configuration tool  If you already have “u-center” software installed, please go to section 2 directly. If not, you need to download it from the u-blox website.https://www.u-blox.com/en/product/u-centerFor TOP168 or another ZED-F9P GNSS, please select...
