rinexpvt Positioning Application



This application generates a user position based on RINEX observation data with the option of including navigation and meteorological data to aid error correction.

Command Summary

Required Arguments:
Short Arg. Long Arg. Description
-o --obs-file=<arg> RINEX observation file.

Optional Arguments:
Short Arg. Long Arg. Description
-d --debug Increase debug level.
-v --verbose Increase verbosity.
-h --help Print help usage.
-n --nav-file=<arg> RINEX navigation file. Required for single frequency ionosphere correction.
-p --pe-file=<arg> SP3 Precise Ephemeris File. Repeat this for each input file.
-m --met-file=<arg> RINEX meteorological file.
-t --time-format=<TIME> Alternate time format string.
-e --enu=<arg> Use the following as origin to solve for East/North/Up coordinates, formatted as a string: "X,Y,Z".
-l --elevation-mask=<arg> Elevation mask (degrees).
-g --logfile=<arg> Write logfile to this file.
-r --rate=<arg> Observation interval (default = 30 seconds or RINEX header specification).
-y -yuma=<arg> Yuma almanac file.
-a -sem=<arg> SEM almanac file.
-s --single-frequency Use only C1 (SPS).
-f --dual-frequency use only P1 and P2 (PPS).
-i --no-ionosphere Do NOT correct for ionosphere delay.
-x --no-closest-ephemeris Allow ephemeris use outside of fit interval.
-c --no-carrier-smoothing Do NOT use carrier phase smoothing.
-z --no-glonass Exclude GLONASS satellites from PVT solution.

Though not stated in the required options lists, either a RINEX navigation file or an SP3 Precise Ephemeris File is needed, using the -n or -p option respectively. When using precise ephemeris, three files must be included: the previous day, the current day and the next day.

Although -z argument appears as optional, in this release, it is always turned on, but implementation will occur in a later release.
