Post Processing Software

Kinematica Post Processing SoftwareKinematica Post Processing Software

Web-based GNSS/INS post processing software

Kinematica is web-based GNSS/INS post-processing software for raw GNSS and inertial data from any of our GNSS/INS products.

Kinematic GNSS post-processing provides an up to 200 times increase in position accuracy over standard real-time GNSS. The Kinematica software automatically downloads the closest RINEX base station data and outputs position to an accuracy of 8mm.

Kinematica utilises forward and backwards looking in time to fill satellite outages and compensate for errors that would normally affect a real-time solution. It also supports both loosely and tightly coupled GNSS/INS processing, automatically switching between them to provide the best accuracy results under the conditions at that point in time.

Ideal for post processing data acquired from surveying, LiDAR and aerial photography applications.
