Benchmark post processing error

Benchmark post processing error

Benchmark post processing error

Hey guys, I have been trained through the military for some surveying, but real world experience.

I am trying to establish a benchmark for doing some RTK surveys around out facility. This benchmark will be for internal use only.

Our equipment is rather old, a zephyer geodetic (no gnss), Trimble 5700 receiver, and a Trimble TSC2.

I setup over a point we have installed and cooked the point for around 4 hours. Used survey style fast static. After it was converted to rinex, I sent it to OPUS for post processing. I received this error:

*OPUS could not process the data file that was submitted. The data was either very noisy or it was collected in kinematic mode.*

I am going to try the survey again tomorrow, do you guys have any suggestions to increase my success?

RE: Benchmark post processing error

OPUS Rapid Static only needs 15min to 2hr worth of collection data. The OPUS website has since been re-vamped, but at one time you had to choose -S (Static) or -RS (Rapid Static). A longer / larger data set could be causing it to think you are submitting a static dataset and failing to process it as kinematic data.

Also check your collection setting on EPOCHs, OPUS will only process a 30 second collection interval. You can submit more, but it is decimated down to 30sec hits. If you were using a RTK rig, it may be set at 1 or 2sec intervals. Again, it should work since OPUS will decimate the data down but results a way larger data file and might be another source of the error.
