Professional Land Surveyor News-Leica Geosystems Updates its GNSS Quality Control and Data Analysis Software
(Heerbrugg, 16 August 2010) Leica Geosystems is pleased to announce Leica SpiderQC v4.0 as part of the new reference station software update that also includes Leica GNSS Spider and Leica SpiderWeb. SpiderQC (previously known as GNSS QC) adds a range of advanced features for multi-frequency, multi-GNSS data analysis, visualization, and numerous other new features, improvements, and optimizations.
SpiderQC provides a suite of tools to help select the best location for reference stations, perform quality control of the reference station data, detect site movements and visualize and monitor the integrity of single base and network RTK corrections in real time.
Galileo and multi-frequency data processing
The new version fully supports quality control and data analysis of Galileo and GIOVE data including the E1, E5a, E5b and E5a+b (AltBOC) signals. Multi-frequency Galileo or GPS data can be used for advanced data analysis not possible before such as phase multipath estimation. With support for standard data formats including RINEX v2.11 and v3.0, Leica SpiderQC is compatible with all Leica and third party receivers. Improved handling of GLONASS inter-frequency biases in v4.0 make analysis of data from mixed receiver types easier than before.
Analysis of Rover Users
New features are now available for visualizing and analyzing the information recorded by Leica GNSS Spider or other reference station software when rover users connect to the system. Network operators can see who is connecting to their network and for how long, which products they are using, where they are located, the time it takes them to obtain a RTK fixed solution and more.
Real time tilt monitoring
Improved support for high precision Leica Nivel200 inclination sensors further improves the ability to detect in real time movements of GNSS monumentation. High precision inclination sensors can detect very small movements of the antenna independently and more accurately than the GNSS system itself. Warning messages and web page output of status and time series now make monitoring reference stations with tilt sensors easier than before.
