Trimble 4700/5700/R7 - PPK Cheatsheet

The following are suggested settings for most UNAVCO-supported PPK surveys. For a detailed how-to on PPK surveys, see Trimble 4700/5700/R7 - How to execute a post-processing kinematic (PPK) survey from start to finish (http://kb.unavco.org/kb/questions/618).

Things to know before and during the survey:

Base GPS antenna type: _____________ (usually Zephyr Geodetic)

Rover GPS antenna type: _____________ (usually Zephyr or Zephyr Geodetic)

Base GPS antenna height measurement method: _____________ (usually "Bottom (or Top) of notch" or "Bottom of antenna mount")

Rover GPS antenna height measurement method: _____________ (usally "Bottom of antenna mount")

In the job:

Coordinate system: Do not choose one: No projection/no datum, Coordinates: Ground, Reference elevation: [elevation within 100 meters of your base elevation], Use geoid model: No.

In the survey style:

Select "PP Kinematic" or "PPK".

Rover options

  • Logging device: Controller
