- Improvement: TOPAZ PPK is augmented by STATIC baseline processing. Instead of computing rover position for every epoch (Kinematic case), one single baseline vector provided in STATIC mode. Static assumption allows to get more accurate solution vs kinematic setting.

- Improvement: TOPAZ PPK is augmented by using precise SP3 orbits. Using precise SV orbits may help to improve positions quality especially on long baselines ( > 30 km). TOPAZ downloads SP3 precise orbits and clocks automatically from most suitable processing center. If SP3 not available - TOPAZ switches to broadcast ephemeris (downloaded automatically as well).

- Improvement: TOPAZ PPK processing architecture re-designed what in turn allows processing of very huge files

- Improvement: allowed file size limits are increased. Files of up to 1999 MB can be processed now

- Fixed issue: issue has been fixed which may block converting UBLOX UBX file to RINEX



2024-May-28


- Fixed issue: critical issue has been fixed which may block operation of RTools and WAY services when processing RTCM3 files.



2024-May-24

- Improvement: allowed file size limits are increased. Files of up to 999 MB can be processed now

- Improvement: RTools can now merge up to 72 files at once

- Improvement: RTools zipping (archiving RINEX into ZIP) speed increased considerably

- Improvement: RTools core updated. Improved file sorting during merge operation

- Fixed issue: number of bugs fixed which may prevent TOPAZ from processing very huge RINEX files ( > 500 MB)



2024-May-10

2024-May-07


- Article added: § 012. How to convert UBLOX UBX to ASCII text



2024-May-06


- New Feature: RTools now can convert / merge / modify navigation RINEX files (ephemeris)

- New Feature: RTools service sorts satellites by GNSS and PRN in converted RINEX observation file

- Improvement: Downloading progress is now showed for RTools and BIN2TXT services

- Improvement: RTools now converts UBLOX [RXM-SFRBX] message to navigation RINEX files of any RINEX version (2, 3, or 4)

- Fixed issue: RTools service stopped converting UBLOX UBX files to RINEX if receiver reset was done at the very begging of data logging

- Fixed issue: Processing server 'dropped' connection by timeout (HTTP status 504) if bulky files (hundreds of MBs) are processed. Now the issue should be fixed for all the services.

- Fixed issue: Average coordinates statistic and map is not showed if no messages w/ positions are provided to WAY service

- Fixed issue: BIN2TXT service may hung up while parsing UBLOX NEO-M8 data



2024-Apr-30


- Fixed issue when RTools converts UBLOX UBX if data rate is less often than 1 sec (say, messages are logged once per 30 sec)

- Fixed critical issue in RTools service which might block converting UBLOX UBX files to RINEX sometimes

- Removed annoying Security Code input for WAY and RTools services



2024-Apr-25


- Added new service BIN2TXT. Allows to convert UBLOX UBX binary messages into text
