magicPPP Key Features
GNSS data processing for high precision positioning usually requires the use of complex tools and a deep GNSS knowledge. The spirit of magicPPP is to make it simpler and faster to increase productivity and speed-up the learning curve.
With a few clicks, the user can upload the GNSS data, select the post-processing mode and obtain the precise position or trajectory. Together with the position or trajectory, magicPPP provides a complete report with comprehensive information on input data quality, configuration used, estimation process, and positioning quality.
Managing data has never been so easy, a dynamic map shows all stations and datasets available for the selected date. The user can select the datasets to process by simply clicking on the map. magicPPP offers two preconfigured post-processing modes, static and kinematic. In kinematic mode, the user can select if the user is terrestrial or aerial user in order to apply the most appropriate configuration. The position and trajectory are provided in plain ASCII and also in standard formats for quick visualization.
magicPPP is a fully multi-constellation solution. It currently supports GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou and QZSS. magicPPP algorithms have been thoroughly validated with real multi-constellation data. In order to obtain the highest accuracy level, magicPPP processes code and phase measurements.
The PPP technique requires a number of so-called core products that include precise orbit predictions, satellite clock corrections and other corrections for the navigation satellites. For high-accuracy performances, precise orbits accuracy must be in the order of 2-4 centimetres and clock corrections errors must be kept around 0.15 nanoseconds. In order to provide fast response, full autonomy and multi-constellation capabilities, magicPPP employs core products routinely generated using GMV’s state-of-the-art, proprietary magicODTS precise orbit determination and time synchronization suite. The products are automatically generated processing data from a network of around 100 worldwide distributed stations. The PPP corrections are then provided in RTCM streaming format, compatible with standard PPP clients.
For improving the PPP processes convergence, GMV has developed the magicFAST utility, for the provision of a service aimed at delivering multi-GNSS real-time regional corrections. These corrections can be injected both in dual and single frequency PPP processes, for accelerating convergence and for increasing robustness.
For the post-processing of GPS data, users can optionally select core products from the International GNSS Service (IGS), which are automatically managed by the system.
magicPPP can also process core products based on data coming from user-defined regional networks.
