RTK-GNSS methods are some of the most used GNSS measuring methods that enable positioning in real time. RTK methods are satellite navigation techniques that improve the accuracy of the data gathered from GNSS, because they include different influences on the observation when calculating the position. These influences are modeled based on observations of the reference stations in the vicinity of the rover. In this graduate thesis different RTK concepts are discussed.
This graduate thesis studies the pros and cons of different RTK (concepts, with the informations gathered from RTK measurements and their analysis.. The measurements were performed on two locations that had more than 1000 m of height difference, with the intention of increasing the height influence. The two locations were in the same triangle of nearby reference stations, with the intention of having similar remaining observation influences. The purpose of this graduate thesis is to make an assessment of quality of the position determination in GNSS networks, wich will serve as a recommendation, to both, the managers and the users of GNSS networks.
