Özet

Commonly used real time kinematic (RTK) network (RTK Network) techniques, i.e., MAX, I-MAX, FKP and VRS, are tested by taking monthly measurements for a year in Florida. Additionally, RTCM message versions 2 and 3 are used with I-MAX and VRS measurements. The results revealed that mostly, horizontal coordinates vary a few centimeters and generally changes in vertical coordinates are less than two decimeters. In terms of horizontal coordinates, the best results are produced by I-MAX3 method and FKP yielded the worst results. In terms of vertical coordinates, almost all results look alike; however, the best results are produced by VRS3 method. It appears that I-MAX3 performed better than I-MAX2 and VRS3 performed better than VRS2. Yet, MAX did not stand out among other techniques.
