2.7.1 Plot GPS Data

This feature is very useful for analyzing GPS data and processed results. The plots are divided into eight groups, and the Build Custom List button allows you to form their own list of plots that will show up under the Custom group.

Along with selecting the plot type, you can define X-Axis and Y-Axis information. Changes made to these pages are retained for future plots. For example, if a time range is entered in the X-Axis, the same time range is used for future plots in this project. This is very useful for inspecting a narrow time slice. You can still make changes to axes information after the plot has been displayed by right-clicking on the plot.

If features are loaded, then there are vertical red bars along the top of the plot. Click on the feature to show solution status information.

Add Group

Defines a set of plots for easy viewing access. Once a group has been created, it appears under the Grouped Plots branch on the main window. This facilitates the task of opening plots for those users who are continually analyzing the same ones after every run of processing. Any userdefined group of plots can also be automatically opened after completion of processing via

Settings | Preferences. See Section 2.6.10, on Page 102 .

The following plot features are available by rightclicking on the plots:


Allows access to many settings, like X and Y axes ranges and the display format for the latter. The plot titles, along with the X and Y axes labels, can all be edited here. Other options regarding the displaying of camera marks and the usage of thick plotting lines are available too.

Common Plots

Table 4 contains a list of common plots that are available through the Plot GPS window.

Table 4: Common Plots












Plots the standard deviations of the east, north and up

Estimated Position

directions versus time for the solution. The total

standard deviation with a distance dependent


component is also plotted. View this plot for individual


forward or reverse solutions and losses of lock.




Velocity is the local level component (easting, northing,


up) computed by the Kalman filter. These are mostly

Estimated Velocity

derived from the Doppler measurements. Plotting the

Doppler RMS is a good way to check the actual


accuracy based on real data. Plotting the estimated


standard deviation shows the theoretical accuracy


based on the Kalman filter error estimates.








Plots the root mean square combination of the code

RMS – C/A Code

residuals. This is a good indicator of receiver code

measurement accuracy and of multi-path for carrier


phase processing. Large jumps can be induced by


missed carrier phase cycle slips.




Plots the root mean square of the L1 phase or L1/L2


iono-free phase combination residuals. This is a good


indicator of carrier phase measurement accuracy. If the

RMS – Carrier Phase

signal is affected by the ionosphere and other error

sources, the RMS will be greater than the few


centimeter range and can be as large as 10 cm or more


for single frequency. Since the code and carrier phase


are combined, some noise from the C/A code can seep


into the carrier phase.




The Doppler is used for velocity determination. When

RMS-L1 Doppler

using GrafNav in conjunction with inertial (INS)

integration, pay close attention to this plot. It gives a


good indication of what standard deviation to give


velocity data in the inertial Kalman filter.



RMS-P Code

If the option Use P-Code in Kalman Filter is enabled,

then this feature can be used to plot the P-Code RMS.


See Ionosphere/L2 Options on Page 79 for information.




Use this plot to view the quality of the data contained in


a GPB file. The plot shows four data characteristics


including the following:


• The cycle slips in the data for each satellite,


indicated by vertical bars. This information is


useful for detecting poor tracking.


• The available time range for each satellite in the


GPB file.

Satellite Lock – Cycle Slips

• The third characteristic shown is the elevation


angle for each of the satellites. The different


colours represent different elevation ranges.


• The final characteristic shown is data that will not


be used for processing as the options stand,


shown in red. This means that either the C/A


range or phase data (L1 or L2) is invalid, or the


locktime of the satellite is less than the locktime


cut-off. Black lines indicate missing ephemerides.



Individual Satellite

Shows satellite code residuals, phase residuals,


elevation angles and C/NO values for individual PRNs.

Table 4: Common Plots cont.























Requires forward and reverse solutions to be combined




and displays the difference between the two



Combined Separation

trajectories. For multi-baseline combination in GrafNav



Batch, this is the maximum minus minimum difference




between baselines for each epoch and the number will




always be positive.







Combined Number of

Shows the number of baselines that are used to form a



combined baseline. This is useful for multi-base

















This plot applies to multi-base batch mode processing.




Instead of showing maximum minus minimum like the



Combined RMS

Combined Separation plot does, it shows the weighted



RMS of the baseline. Thus, if one baseline does not fit




well, but it is given a very low weighting, it will not affect




this plot as much. It is a good idea to view both because




this plot can be optimistic.







Quality Control









Indicates satellite geometry relating to position. Small




values indicate better geometry. Lines are displayed for




position DOP (PDOP), horizontal position DOP (HDOP)



and vertical position DOP (VDOP). These values should




be similar to other PDOP computations, but differences




can be visible due to different base satellite selection




(double differencing).








Indicates satellite geometry relating to position. Small




values indicate better geometry. This value is the




double difference DOP and is approximately PDOP, it



can be lowered due to the differential modeling. The




DD_DOP is used for all internal checks and DOP




related options in the software. Epochs with extremely




poor DD_DOP (>100) are skipped and are not plotted.








This plot shows whether an epoch has a fixed or float



Float/Fixed Ambiguity Status

ambiguity status. Fixed integer ambiguities generally



have better accuracies. This plot also shows if there are




zero, one or more fixed ambiguities used to determine a




combined solution.








Number of satellites for epochs. This plot gives an



Number of Satellites (BAR)

overview of how many satellites there are. Use this



graph for large data sets because it shows every time




the number of satellites drops to a minimum. Epochs




with less than 4 satellites are not displayed.








This plot shows the number of GPS, GLONASS and



Number of Satellites (LINE)

total satellites. Epochs with less than 4 satellites are not



displayed. This plot contains more information than the




bar plot.








This plot shows if and when GPB files are static and




kinematic. It can overlay multiple GPB files to see if they




overlap in time and to indicate weak periods of the data



File Data Coverage

that could result in a loss of lock. Since it does not



examine processed data, this plot is not as reliable as




other indicators. If you have Inertial Explorer, you can




plot IMU coverage and use this plot to show IMU data




time gaps.








This value indicates solution stability for a float solution.




The ambiguities should be driftless and have a drift of 0



Ambiguity drift

cycles/sec. Normally, this number will be 0-0.03 cycles



for very stable solutions, and 0.03-0.05 for quality 2




stability, and so on for Q3 and up. Most users rely on the




quality number instead of this plot. The quality number




is partially derived from this parameter.

Coordinate Values









Distance Separation

This plot shows the distance between the master and




remote in kilometers. For multi-base distance




separation, See the multi-base plotting tools.







Height Profile

Height over the processing time period. This can be a




very good quality control measure in areas where the




height is very stable.








This plot assumes that the last epoch in the static




Static Session Convergence

session is the correct one. A float solution convergence



plot is then formed. This gives an indicator of how well




a static solution is stabilizing.







Velocity Profile

Plot shows north, east and up velocities, which can be




used to determine when the antenna is moving. This




plot also shows horizontal speed.







Acceleration Profile

This plot shows the approximate acceleration computed




by the baseline processor. For this plot to be shown,




enable the Extended trajectory output.







Height Above Ground

This plot is to be used in conjunction with a DEM to




display the remote’s height above the ground.












This is the vector between base and remote centered




Local Level Vector

about the main base station. It is useful for moving



baseline processing. For absolute positioning




applications, the distance separation combined with the




height profile is usually a better diagnostic tool.

















Estimated Clock Accuracy

This plot shows the estimated standard deviation




computed by the least-squares single point processor.




In general, it matches position accuracies.








The time offset shown here is the computed difference




between the GPS system time and the GLONASS




system time.








The single point processor computes a clock correction




Receiver Clock Offset

on an epoch-by-epoch basis. This value is the



difference between the receiver's clock and the GPS




time system. For some applications, you may wish to




plot and monitor this value.








This feature can be used to plot data from a comma or




User Selected File - Plot data

space separated file. This spares you from having to



use a program such as Microsoft Excel or MatLab to plot







the data. It can also be used to plot the results of the




Compare utility.







Tropospheric Bias Estimate

Plots the tropospheric correction value as determined




by the Kalman filter
