Errors can be Reduced in VRS

Using the concept of the virtual reference stations, certain systematic errors can be reduced considerably: 1. Ionosphere One of the main sources of errors is the Ionosphere . The electrons

Challenges and Benefits of VRS

The main purpose of a VRS station is to reduce the baseline distance between the rover and the reference station in order to efficiently remove spatially correlated errors using differential

What is Virtual Reference Station?

A virtual reference station is an imaginary, unoccupied reference station which is only a few meters from the RTK user. For this position, observation data are created from the data
