Rover using Ntrip correction localisation methodology

Is there a methodology one could employ to undertake a localisation on a known coordinate with a single Emlid receiver using a Ntrip correction with a RTK fix solution? Primary use would be for locating and observing previously established marks?

You can create the point in a project manually or import it from a CSV file, then stake it out on the field.

Sometimes when you compare known points with the RTK solution you get a difference in the decimetres. Other GNSS receivers have a functionality where by you can effectively use your observed position and block shift it to the coordinate for the known mark. Effectively undertaking a block shift based in one coordinate. Then you would check on another two known coordinates to confirm the block shift is good. Then start surveying knowing that you are in terms of that coordinate frame. This is particularly useful when you just have one receiver and an Ntrip correction. Does anyone have a methodology to do this using the Emlid Reach?

Yes, this is possible. Emlid calls it Base Shift and it’s based on a single point.

Hi @lumbandco,

Just wanted to confirm what @Africawaterdoc said. The Base shift feature is exactly what you need to do one-point localization. And the guide above will help you go through all the steps to apply it.
