Shifting RTK Shots to OPUS

Shifting RTK Shots to OPUS

In our previous video tip, we showed how TBC’s “Processing Services” routine can be used to easily send Trimble GNSS raw static data files to the National Geodetic Survey’s “OPUS” service for post-processing. In this installment, we’ll show how a processed OPUS result can be conveniently imported straight from your email back into TBC, then be used to refine the coordinates of an RTK survey originally performed using an autonomous “here” base position!
