Do you have some raw measurement data and would like to try RTKLIB before downloading and configuring it?  If so, follow these instructions to get a solution emailed directly to you in just a few minutes.


RTKLIB Demo Instructions

Send an email to rtklibexplorer@gmail.com that follows these rules:

  1. The email subject must include the words “rtklib demo”
  2. The base and rover data must be in attached files , either separate or zipped together and the total attachments must be less than 25 MB
  3. The rover files must have the letters “rov” in the file names
  4. The base files must have the letters “base” in the file names
  5. Valid file extensions are .ubx, .*nav, .obs, and .yy* where yy is the year (e.g.   .17o)
  6. At least one navigation file from either the base or rover must be included as well as observation files from both rover and base.
  7. If the base observations are in a Rinex file, the approximate base position in the header must be valid and in XYZ coordinates.  (This is a temporary restriction until I improve the code)
  8. Config values are optional and should be copied by line directly from the config file into the body of the email, one to a line (e.g.    pos1-posmode = static, see more examples below)

If you’ve done everything right (and everything on my end is working properly), about five minutes after you have sent the email, you should receive a response with observation and solution plots and attached solution and config files.  Here is an example response I received after sending in one of the M8T data sets from a recent post.


To specify a configuration different from the default, you can add any valid line from an RTKLIB config file to the body of the email.  Here are a few sample configuration options.  Copy any combination of these to the body of the email (don’t include the bold titles, only the text after the colon)

Static solution:                pos1-posmode =kinematic

L1/L2 solution:                pos1-frequency =l1+l2

Combined solution:       pos1-soltype =combined

Elevation mask:               pos1-elmask =10   # (deg)

Satellite types:                  pos1-navsys =15 # (1:gps+2:sbas+4:glo+8:gal+16:qzs+32:beidou)

Ambiguity resolution:  pos2-armode =continuous

GLONASS ambiguity:   pos2-gloarmode =on

Output format:                out-solformat =llh

Base station ant type:   ant2-anttype =ASH700936E
