What is a base station?
A base station in RTK/PPK drone surveying is a GPS receiver placed on a fixed position of the ground that serves a reference point for drone, the roving receiver, to calculate their own positions. The correction data is also broadcasted by the base stations which helps reduce the errors in measurements of positions done by the drone. Consistency is a key in accurate mapping which can also be provided by using a single base station. It is important to keep record of the base position coordinates.
When uploading PPK dataset in DataHub, users are asked to input the base position coordinates and they are stored the base.ant file that can be downloaded by the end-users.
