I recently purchased two RS2+ receivers. Yesterday I tried using them for the first time by logging four hours worth of data. I think I might have left the update rate at 5Hz, when it should have been set to 1Hz since I was trying to simulate setting up a base, not rover. Afterwards I downloaded the files to my computer. I was expecting the files to be in .csv format, but they weren’t. How do I convert the files to .csv format? Do I even need to do this?
If I were setting one of my receivers up as a base and logging data for an extended period of time to create a new Known Point, could I use my other receiver to record the locations of my GCPs at the same time? I guess / think my rover needs to be receiving corrections from the base while I record my GCP locations so it’s probably not possible to do these two things simultaneously?
I also downloaded some CORS data from the nearest station, but I don’t know how to use it? Is it possible to use my local CORS as a source for corrections while I record my GCP locations with my rover? How do I go about doing this? I am trying to avoid paying $600 for access to my local NTRIP network.
The Emlid support documents say I need to get a RINEX observation file from a CORS, a RINEX observation file from a local base, and a RINEX navigation file from a CORS or local base to use static processing to create a new Known Point. How do I get a RINEX navigation file from my local base? Is it one of the standard files that gets downloaded after I log data from my RS2+ base? The support document also says I need to use Emlid Studio on my computer to process these three files into a new Known Point. So apparently I can’t do this in Emlid Flow? I know I have to log data for at least two hours, but I am curious how long I can expect the processing to take in Emlid Studio after I have imported the data into it?
If I am understanding the process correctly, I can record my GCP locations with my rover getting corrections from my base over LoRa radio after I have created a new Known Point and placed my base over it?
Since I don’t think it’s possible to get corrections from my local CORS while recording my GCP locations, I think my workflow when I get to a new work site will be to log data for at least two hours, preferably four, then create a new Known Point over the base, connect the base to the rover over LoRa radio and record the locations of my GCPs, getting corrections from the base. Does this sound right?
As you can tell, I am a complete newbie so any help or advice is greatly appreciated! Thank You!
