The National Geodetic Survey (NGS), an office of NOAA's National Ocean Service, manages a network of Continuously Operating Reference Stations.
A: Network real-time kinematic (NRTK) positioning is nowadays a very common practice, not only in academia but also in the professional world. In the last 10 years, several networks of continuous operating reference stations (CORSs) were created to support users. These networks offer real-time services for NRTK positioning, providing centimeter-level positioning accuracy with an average distance of 25–35 kilometers between the reference stations.
AN OVERVIEW OF GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM CONTINUOUSLY OPERATING REFERENCE STATIONS by William A. Stone New Mexico State Geodetic Advisor, National Geodetic Survey Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA ABSTRACT Most applications of Global Positioning System (GPS) technology in surveying, mapping, and related disciplines have accuracy requirements that necessitate the use of a relative positioning technique.
It makes use of the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) to develop a local satellite positioning system, named as " Hong Kong Satellite Positioning Reference Station Network" (SatRef). The network consists of 15 Continuously Operating Reference Stations (CORS) evenly distributed in Hong Kong. The stations receive GNSS satellite data round-the-clock and send it to a.
