Michigan GPS CORS and The Rapid OPUS Service

origins of michigan gps cors
Origins of Michigan GPS CORS
  • Established in Fall 2000 by MDOT
  • This system was the answer to the question, how to complete the multitude of highway survey projects in Michigan with less field employees
  • Fall of 2004 the Network, became active, providing statewide RTK corrections
  • This meant that any surveyor with a GPS receiver and a suitable connection could now gain access to the network and obtain RTK corrections without setting up a local base station.

Design

  • All stations in the MSRN are of the Earlconic design , for weather reasons.
  • Monuments are 12 feet in the ground, 24" in diameter with a re-rod reinforced cage. It extends 5 feet out of the ground and is surmounted with a spun aluminum pole either 8' ,16' ,or 18' in height
  • The monument is surmounted with a Leica AT504 choke ring antenna and weather-resisting dome

monument composition
Monument Composition
  • All stations rigorously adhere to a 5 degree site clearance and have been positioned in locations free of excess multipath
  • Once the monument is in the ground and connectivity to the server is verified, then 30 days of data is collected and sent to the NGS for processing
  • The densification of this network and the implementation of its real-time capabilities have changed forever how GPS and Surveyors perform their tasks in the State of Michigan

What is OPUS?

  • Online Positioning User Service
      • Free service by NGS for GPS users
      • Fast and easy to use
      • Requires minimum of 2 hours of data
      • Useful for checking
slide9

What it Provides

  • Provides location of receiver based on raw GPS data:
      • Geographic Coordinates (Latitude/Longitude)
      • State Plane Coordinates
      • UTM Coordinates
      • ITRF and NAD83 Coordinates
      • Ellipsoidal and Orthometric Elevation
slide10

What is OPUS-Rapid Static?

  • Same purpose as OPUS – provides location solution to GPS data sets
  • Key Advantage: Requires only 15 minutes of data
  • Accurate – 2 cm horizontal, 4 cm vertical
  • Brand New – January 31, 2007
slide11

What is OPUS-Rapid Static?

  • Uses new solution program – “Rapid Static GPS” (RSGPS)
  • RSGPS uses both P code and carrier phase (L1 & L2) range observations
  • LAMBDA (Least Squares Ambiguity Decorrelation Adjustment) algorithm to find ambiguity (N)
  • Ambiguity = difference in number of wavelengths between self-generated receiver phase and received GPS phase
  • D = c ΔT + λN; where c= speed of light, ΔT= time differenceand N = ambiguity in wavelength (λ)
slide12

What is OPUS-Rapid Static?

  • - Opus computes solution in reference to 3 CORS locations
  • - CORS sites selected by increasing distance from user's station and site stability. Search will stop if distance greater than 200 km.
  • - If search fails to locate 3 stations, program will refuse to attempt a solution
  • - Reference stations can be selected manually
slide13

How to use OPUS-Rapid Static

  • Service located at: http://www.ngs.noaa.gov/OPUS/
  • Click OPUS Rapid Static link:
  • Required Data:
      • Email address for solution to be sent to
      • The GPS data file in RINEX format
      • Antenna Type, e.g. Leica ATX1230
      • Antenna Height
slide14

How to use OPUS-Rapid Static

  • RINEX = standard GPS data set file format
      • Receiver Independent Exchange format
  • RINEX format converter at: http://facility.unavco.org/software/teqc/teqc.html
  • Or use Leica Geo-office
slide16

Results

Wait 30 min. and NGS will send an email with the solution report.

  • OPUS – RS results similar to standard OPUS results:
  • Greatest horizontal difference only < 2 cm; vertical difference significant for point Miller
  • Comparison not entirely valid

Conclusion

  • Michigan CORS is a revolutionary system that allows for high accuracy positional measurements
  • OPUS Rapid Static provide a free and convenient means of calculating GPS locations anywhere with one system.
  • It also provides easy and fast redundancy in GPS static measurements
