Brief description:
Permanent Global Positioning Base Station System "Latvian Positioning System".
The LatPos GNSS base station system consists of base stations in the Republic of Latvia, the Republic of Estonia and the Republic of Lithuania, which operate in a continuous mode, store the received signal data and distribute real-time correction to users via the mobile Internet network. The LatPos system receives signals from the GNSS systems of GPS NAVSTAR (funded by the United States), GLONASS (funded by the Russian Federation), Galileo (funded by the European Union) and BeiDOU (funded by the People's Republic of China).
Two types of LatPos GNSS network data are available:
Real-time correction - immediately rejected on the user's GNSS receiver;
Post-processing data - can be used to calculate coordinates with specialized software.
The GNSS base station enables the user's GNSS receiver to determine coordinates with two centimeters accuracy in real time and with five millimeters accuracy using the accumulated post-processing data. The coordinates of the base stations are calculated in the valid Latvian geodetic coordinate system and are a part of the State Geodetic Network.
Each station stores the received satellite signal information in hour-long files. In files, the data rate is one second. Files with a recording interval of 1 (one) second are stored for two months. Files with a recording interval of 30 (thirty) seconds are stored independently. Satellite data stored in the LatPos GNSS network for post-processing is available on the LatPos system Spider Business Center (SBC) website in RINEX 3.2 format, which is supported by all GNSS system manufacturers.
