We are about to collect an overwater geophysics survey on the Columbia river and need highly resolved positioning on our boat towed sensor string. We’re using 4 RS2s as rovers to accurately position our sensor streamer as it’s pulled behind a boat and 1 base station located nearby pushing RTK corrections over the LoRa.
I’ve collected a test data set and only had the rovers logging raw (ubx), position as LLH, and base corrections RTCM3 ( I didn’t setup a “project”). Is there any reason to create a “project” in the survey tab? Can I export the data any differently there?
I worked through the post processing routine on the tuturial with the raw ubx data and that seemed to work well enough, but would like to import data into QGIS or export shapefiles etc rather than work with the rtklib package.
As far as the position output tab goes for the rovers. Can I just leave those options switched off since I’m internally logging the rover positions on each unit and they are communicating with the base over radio? Am I understanding that the position output options are only if the rovers are sending their positions to an external device via serial, TCP or Bluetooth?
Any other tips or tricks for data collection and processing that will make my life easier?
