NOAA Releases Real-Time Guidelines
RT GNSS positioning is rapidly becoming the favored method for obtaining centimeter-level coordinates and will continue as a dynamic technology, due to advances in hardware and software, additional GNSS constellations, and new signals available to the user. These guidelines will be updated as these developments affect RT procedures and data.
The new document fills a void that exists for RT GNSS positioning practitioners in two ways:
Provides unbiased background information necessary for RT users in the field
Provides specific procedures and criteria to achieve 95% confidence with RT results
It is anticipated that the background information and best methods promoted in this document will become standard reading to help professionals achieve accurate, consistent, and reliable data for their work.
The guidelines may be found at www.ngs.noaa.gov/PUBS_LIB/NGSRealTimeUserGuidelines.v1.0.pdf.
