Stop & Go with ReachView 3

This tutorial shows how to use the Stop & Go with ReachView 3 workflow in Emlid Studio to get separate points with precise coordinates from the track of measurements.

Overview

Stop & Go with ReachView 3 allows you to improve the positions of points collected without a real-time correction link between the base and the rover. This may happen due to the insufficient line of sight, absence of the Internet connection, non-availability of the NTRIP service, etc.

The workflow in the field involves the use of a base and a rover attending all unknown points and occupying each one for a short time. The technique can be compared to point collection in RTK, but precise positions of collected points are calculated afterward, not in real time.

Getting started

To get separate points with precise coordinates, you will need the following:

  • a RINEX observation file from the base
  • a RINEX observation file from the rover
  • a RINEX navigation file from the base or from the rover
  • a CSV file from ReachView 3
note

If you recorded raw data in the UBX format or got corrections from the NTRIP service in the RTCM3 format, Emlid Studio will automatically convert them to RINEX using the background conversion feature.

Workflow

Emlid Studio calculates all solutions using RINEX files from the base and the rover and averages them over time spans using a CSV file from ReachView 3 to provide separate points.

Processing

note

If you already post-processed RINEX files from the base and the rover and obtained a .pos file, go straight to the Generating corrected CSV section.

To process the data and get separate points, add RINEX files from the base and the rover as described in the Kinematic processing guide.

tip

To add a file, simply drag and drop it from your desktop.

After processing, the resulting .pos file will be automatically uploaded to the Processed solution field.

Generating corrected CSV

note

If you skipped the steps above, you need to add the .pos file manually. Drag and drop it to the PPK solution field.

To generate a corrected CSV, follow the steps below:

  1. Add a .csv file from ReachView 3 and tick the required data quality to choose solutions to be averaged.

    note

    If you want to get cm-accurate results, tick Fix only.

  1. Click Start. The result will be shown on the plot.


    note

    Click the Show result files button to get the resulting corrected CSV file. Emlid Studio creates a copy of the .csv file named “name_of your-file_corrected.csv".
