Introduction

Why Anubis?

  • Data providers and network operators: a sudden receiver mal-functioning or any slow degradation may irreversibly affect collected GNSS observations and should be identified and fixed as soon as possible.
  • Data users: station and data selection using qualitative and quantitative control or environment indicators make user analysis more efficient.
  • G-Nut/Anubis is a unique tool, and open-source for its principal post-processing functionalities, that supports both data provider and data user to satisfy their needs. Advanced versions additionally support monitoring of real-time data flow and include a variety of extra additional features.

Purposes

  • Daily(30s)/high-rate(>1Hz) observation files
  • Real-time (1Hz) data streams (real-time version)
  • Format and meta data checking/editing
  • Epoch-by-epoch code-based positioning using individual constellations
  • Receiver clock estimates, dillution of precision
  • Navigation data monitoring
  • Long-term monitoring (site instrumentation changes, hardware degradation)
  • Environment monitoring (obstructions, multipath, Co/N)

Visualizations

Plot Anubis

A free perl tool (plot_anubis.pl) for making static plots from a single station QC file (Anubis's XTR output).

These plots include: general characteristics, availability of observations, number of observed satellites and signals, elevation-dependent distribution of observations, availability of code and phase bands, satellite visibility, code multipath and noise, signal-to-noise ratio, coordinate repeatability.

The tool is provided without any support.


G-Nut's QC-charts

A complex system designed for a long-term monitoring of GNSS station network(s). It includes interactive visualizations of predefined QC key-parameters in two display modes: 1) network view, and 2) station view. The system can additionally provide alerts for predefined criterions and metadata views.

The system is driven by the PostgreSQL database engine, fed from the Anubis's QC-XML outputs, and it supports generating interactive web charts. It can be adapted to various other purposes, including monitoring of data from real-time streams.

Technology

Degraded quality of GNSS data observation represents an incorrigible error which should be identified as soon as possible. The Quality Control (QC) of the GNSS data is crucial for monitoring the performance of sensors, site environment and their changes in time. The knowledge of data quality and quantity is also useful prior data preservation, dissemination and utilization. The QC is eventually important for providing a feedback on data relevancy to the provider, and for providing a priori information for users interested in data analysis... (read more)
