The performance of RTK-GNSS depends on the geometry and number of visible satellites and signal quality. These parameters can potentially be predicted using simulations that consider the relative geometry between the receiver and surrounding objects. In this study, we first verified whether the GNSS signal quality can be correctly predicted using 3D models of buildings and measurement data. Subsequently, we verified whether the FIX status of RTK can be correctly predicted. The results show that the number of the measured and predicted satellites that have good signal quality was in agreement at least 87.8% of the time. We assessed and categorized the RTK-GNSS fixing status using the number of usable satellites. A comparison of the RTK fixed status estimation, using the actual measurements and those from the simulation, agreed within 83.9% of the total.

Filtering methods to extract the tide height from Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) signals for Hydrographic applicationsAlsaaq, Faisal; Kuhn, Michael; El-Mowafy, Ahmed ; Kennedy, Paul (2016)Hydrographic surveys have traditionally relied on the availability of tide information for the reduction of sounding observations to a common (chart) datum usually related to a specific tide level. In most cases, tide ...
