Emlid announced new PPK software—Emlid Studio. It’s a cross-platform desktop application designed specifically for post-processing GNSS data. The app is free and available for Windows and Mac users.
Emlid Studio features a simple interface that makes post-processing easier than ever. The app allows users to convert raw GNSS logs into RINEX, post-process static and kinematic data, geotag images from drones, including DJI, and extract points from the survey projects completed with the ReachView 3 app.
With Emlid Studio, you can post-process data recorded with Emlid Reach receivers and other GNSS receivers or NTRIP services. For post-processing, you will need RINEX observation and navigation files. You can also use raw data in the UBX and RTCM3 format—Emlid Studio will automatically convert them into RINEX.
The post-processing workflow is very straightforward. You can receive precise positioning of a single point or track depending on your positioning mode. Just add several RINEX files and enter the antenna height. Click the Process button, and Emlid Studio will do the rest. Once the resulting position file is ready, you will see the result on the plot.
One more tool is available for the users of Reach receivers and the ReachView 3 app. The Stop & Go feature allows you to improve the coordinates of points collected in Single or Float modes.
Another helpful feature is geotagging for drone mapping. To add geotags to the images’ EXIF data, you’ll need aerial photos and the POS file with the events. Emlid Studio also provides a chance to update your data from the RTK drone in case you had a float or single solution during your survey. You will need a set of RINEX logs from a base and drone, MRK file, and images from the drone. Just drag and drop data in the file slots and you’ll see the result in a few seconds.
To start using Emlid Studio, simply download the app for your computer—either Windows or macOS. To learn more about Emlid Studio features, visit the Emlid website.
