Data Quality (based on TEQC)

  • 0°: % of dual frequency GPS data above 0° of elevation
    (at least 90%, between 80% and 89%, less than 80%)
  • 15°: % of dual frequency GPS data above 15° of elevation
    (at least 90%, between 80% and 89%, less than 80%)

Availability (adopted data flow for the station data)

  • Daily: data available (%) during the last 28 days
    (at least 90%, between 80% and 89%, less than 80%)
  • Hourly: data available (%) during the last 28 days
    (at least 90%, between 80% and 89%, less than 80%)
  • RT: data available (%) during the last 7 days
    (at least 90%, between 80% and 89%, less than 80%)

Latency

  • Hourly: % of data with latency below 10 minutes during the last 7 days
    (at least 90%, between 80% and 89%, less than 80%)
  • RT: data latency (%) during the last 7 days
    (below 3 s, between 3 s and 4.9 s, more than 5 s)

Documentation

  • CL: commitment letter available at EPN CB
  • SL: correctly formatted station log available at EPN CB
  • SP: station pictures (and short comments) available at EPN CB
  • NC: national ETRF coordinates available at EPN CB

Meta-data

  • Daily: station log and header of RINEX observation file are consistent
  • RT: station log and RTCM messages are consistent

Relevance to EPN

The EPN Coordination Group will evaluate the benefits of a proposed station to the EPN (see EPN Guidelines). Possible added-values are :

  • D: densification station (no existing EPN station within a radius of 300 km)
  • R: offering GLONASS (Russian satellite system) data in addition to GPS
  • E: offering GALILEO (European satellite system) data in addition to GPS
  • C: collocation with a relevant instrument

Data

  • AC: antenna (+radome) has absolute calibration values known to IGS/EUREF
  • DQ: GNSS data quality responds to EPN standards (cut off, obstructions, ...)
