    Glitchy WiFi

    I changed the setting this morning. It's too soon to tell if it fixed the problem, but I didn't have any trouble during the short time (about an hour) that I ran it today.

    Glitchy WiFi

    I had a couple of instances this morning in which the LS got its WiFi connection bollixed up. It would be working okay, collecting epochs using a CRTN base and my phone as a hotspot (though it seemed to loose connection more frequently than usual, and then reacquire it without intervention)...

    Is This Normal?

    One of the points I shot today proved to be in a challenging environment, even though it didn't look like it. At one point I had 10 groups going, and the LS went back and forth between fixed and fload. Eventually it hit the specified confidence level (50) and started clicking away. When it...

    NGS GVX Vector Exchange File Format

    I expect that the Javad team is already aware of this, but NGS is seeking comments regarding a proposed new vector exchange format. It's always easier to get features implemented before a standard is established, so I hope the team gets involved early. GVX Document

    Accuracy Issues

    There's no hard-and-fast rule. Sky view, occupation time, number of redundant observations, constellation at each observation, and ionospheric conditions are all going to affect results. With rare exceptions, I roll all observations into Star*Net and let it tell me what kind of accuracy I can...

    Accuracy Issues

    I work in a very different set of circumstances than Darren does, but I come to pretty much the same conclusion he does: if you're trying to get within 0.02' (let alone 0.002') in 100', RTK is the wrong tool for the job. That's what a total station is for.

    Are You Sure You Want To Reject?

    I can endorse this, but only as an option via a user setting. My SOP profile collects 1200 epochs and then auto-restarts, so moving on means stopping the final observation (that has only a few epochs) and rejecting it. I don't want to have to confirm the rejection for every point I collect.

    Stolen Javad Equipment

    I agree that Javad should do whatever is possible to deactivate stolen equipment (after making sure that the "stolen" report is legit, of course), but I doubt that it'll reduce theft. Most of these thefts are opportunistic; the thief sees something he believes is valuable without knowing much...

    Boundary Survey Workflow

    I had never heard of it, either, but then I'm still using Star*Net v6. It's a nice addition, though editing the files isn't that difficult. I always have to edit my total station raw data files to fix field data entry screwups, so a little touchup on the RTK files doesn't add much to the...

    Release: JField 3.0.2.1151 and Linux OS 4.4.167.11

    The first set of files were from the first day of observations, the second set of files were from the second day of observations. It's all one project, with no changes to settings in between days -- on Day 2 I just turned the receiver on and started collecting shots in the same project. That's...

    Release: JField 3.0.2.1151 and Linux OS 4.4.167.11

    I hit the same points again today, and see that the Star*Net export shows a different position for the same RTN base: C @1 38.536240 -121.751235 -0.539125 0.00000000 0.00000000 0.00000000 ' C @6 38.536237 -121.751217 -0.015200 0.00000000 0.00000000 0.00000000 ' It seems to me that it should be...

    Release: JField 3.0.2.1151 and Linux OS 4.4.167.11

    I should note that Star*Net also accepts Position values in hyphen-delimited format, so that the PH record shown above would be as follows: PH UCD1 38-32-10.451972 121-45-04.382789 -0.015 ! ! ! I found this format to be more difficult to use in automated conversions, so I stick with...

    Release: JField 3.0.2.1151 and Linux OS 4.4.167.11

    I can only speak to Star*Net v6 and earlier, but it uses a dot to delimit degrees, then two digits for minutes, two digits for seconds, and the remaining digits represent decimal seconds. So 121°45'04.382789" would be represented as 121.4504382789 (the format I show in my original post is...

    Release: JField 3.0.2.1151 and Linux OS 4.4.167.11

    It's a very small project at the moment -- just 3 points -- so I'll attach the files here. (I changed the extension on the Star*Net file generated by J-Field to .txt in order to enable the attachment.)

    Release: JField 3.0.2.1151 and Linux OS 4.4.167.11

    After updating to this new release, I noticed that I had a new export option: Star*Net GPS format. I've been happy with the g-file export, but decided to see if could skip a step by exporting direct to the Star*Net format. I still need to search-and-replace the base station name (which is...

    rover shots not processing through DPOS

    If I understand your desire outcome correctly, you can export the g-files for each point and import those into a least squares adjustment application (I use Star*Net), fixing the DPOS height for the base point. This is SOP for me. It does require some data shuttling, but it'll save you a trip...

    Unable To Create Restore Point

    I still get this error, though now it says "Unable to create restore point in home/jdata" or something like that. I don't see anything that looks like a backup file in either SD Card/jdata or Internal Memory/jdata. Updating without creating a restore point is unnerving, so this is more than...

    Meaning of Sound

    When I pressed that one I didn't see sound options. I'll take another look when I get back to the office.
