Under placing the base tutorial (https://docs.emlid.com/reach/common/tutorials/placing-the-base/) there are 6 different methods. I would like to use the “Post-Processed Kinematic” method to get a more accurate base coordinates than average single and hoping that someone can confirm I am doing it correctly.
I obtained raw on my reach “base” station for ~30minutes.
Convert this raw data to RINEX. Run RTKPOST using .OBS from reach “base” as rover and using downloaded RINEX from reference station as the base. (Question)What should I select under the Positions->Base Station here? I used XYZ that I got from the header of .OBS from reference station
there is a field called “Approx position XYZ” that gave me 3 numbers.
From the resulting POS file, I picked a random point that is Q=1 and assume that is an accurate coordinate of my reach base.
Now I post process for future data. For base I use reach base this time and rover I user reach rover. Under Position-> Base Station I select Lat/Lon/Height (deg/m) and put in the values I got from step 3.
Can anyone confirm that I am doing this correctly since my knowledge of RTK is very beginner. Also under Base Mode-> Base coordinate in reach app there is a place to enter base coordinate. I can ignore this since I’m doing post process?
file from reference station. I changed extension from .18o to .obs to upload.
