The ultimate quality metric of a differential positioning system is, of course, positioning.
To demonstarte the key attributes of the GDGPS System, namely, global coverage, outstanding accuracy, and high real-time reliability
we present in this page the live, real-time positioning performance at three, widely separated locations.
At each location a dual-frequency GPS receiver is streaming its measurements to a GDGPS Operations Center (GOC).
At the GOC we also calculate the real-time orbit and clock states of the GPS satellites based on such data streams
from nearly 100 receivers spread all over the world. In a separate point positioning process we use the precise real-time
orbit and clock states to position the three receivers in real-time.
These three receivers may or may not have contributed their data to the GPS orbit determinationn process. But with so many
receivers contributing their data, any one receiver has neglible impact, and it does not skew the point-positioning results.
Below you can see the accuracy of the real-time positioning measured against the surveyed location of the antenna. The
point-positioning is done kinematically at 1 Hz, that is, at each second we estimate a new location with no assumptions
on the velocity (which is zero, of course).
