How to create static points

how to create static points, I am from chile greetings, this has been a chaos

Place the rover rod over your point, ensure you have static rtk settings enabled, wait for fix, read your value or start a survey and get an average value over time.

what are the static rtk settings

It always helps to read the fine manual :wink:

Static - an assumption is made that Reach is static. Constraining the system helps to resolve ambiguities faster as well as produce measurements with higher precision.

from a reference station which of these two would serve me?

Fix-and-hold: after first ambiguity fix hold them constrained. Fix is more stable, but in case first initialization was not correct it will take longer to recover and initialize correctly. You can think of it as if Fix had inertia.

Continuous: ambiguities are resolved epoch by epoch. Less stable, but no risk of holding a false fix.
In real-life conditions on moving platform Fix-and-hold provides better overall performance.

Hi @jeraldoproyectos,

Do you want to collect a point in RTK or post-process raw data from Reach to get point coordinates?

to carry out a post process later


May I ask you to share your Reach Simple system report? I can check it to make sure your configurations are appropriate.

Hi @jeraldoproyectos,

Thanks! It looks fine.
I’ve noticed that you didn’t enable raw data logging. Don’t forget to turn it on before you start to collect the point.

So you need:

  1. Set up the unit on the point you want to collect;
  2. Enable raw data logging;
  3. Record log on this point;
  4. Export log from Reach on your laptop/PC;
  5. Get the log from the reference station;
  6. Post-process logs.

Thank you very much Tatiana.
the raw data of emlid can be transformed to rinex that can be used in another post-process program


Sure, you can convert raw data to RINEX using RTKConv and then use it in any software for post-processing.
You also can start raw data logging in RINEX format in ReachView.
