RTK vs PPK
Do you need sub-cm accurate positioning, but you don’t want to set up a real-time base station link? RTK (Real Time Kinematic) accuracy can also be achieved with post-processing, which is known as PPK (Post Processing Kinematic). Often used in mapping and photogrammetry, PPK can be used whenever real-time positioning is not necessary. It can also be used to improve GPS/GNSS data when the real-time base station link is unstable or has malfunctioned. Septentrio PP-SDK offers you the possibility to achieve reliable centimeter-level positioning by post-processing GNSS and base station data.
GPS/GNSS post-processing in your workflow
PP-SDK (Post-Processing Software Development Kit) utilizes Septentrio’s advanced PVT algorithms to post-process GNSS measurements. By combining GNSS and base station data reliable cm-level accuracy can be achieved at the office. The SDK includes all the necessary tools to incorporate post-processing functionality into your own applications and products.It is compatible with common programming languages such as C/C++/C#. You can choose to automate the workflow with our API or to use the GUI applications for manual processing.
- Using Google Chrome to download the software package may trigger an alert for dangerous content. You can safely ignore this alert and continue downloading by right-clicking on the alert and selecting 'Keep'.
- A hardware permissions dongle is required to run the post-processing part of the PPSDK. Without the dongle, you only obtain limited functionality: RINEX converter, SBF stream editing.
- To run the full package of PPSDK, you require a permission file for the licence installer. This is only available after you have placed an order.
- Please contact orders[at]septentrio.com if you are interested in receiving a full or a demo licence of the software.
