Here we'll discuss RINEX data, how it's used, and why you should care. We'll get to use cases, but let's first address the basics.

What is RINEX data?

Receiver Independent Exchange Format (RINEX) is a data interchange format for raw satellite navigation system data. It allows you to post-process location data to get higher accuracy. 

How can I use RINEX data?

AeroPoint Surveys

You can process an AeroPoint survey using the RINEX Upload Method, which uses base station data to correct the AeroPoint geotags and the image geotags. 

PPK Surveys

While the Propeller Corrections Network is the simplest way to process a PPK survey, you can process PPK data with RINEX data using an onsite base station to produce a RINEX file.

In both of these cases, the accuracy of the final model will depend on the accuracy of the supplied RINEX file. 

I still can't do it!
