Abstract

goGPS is a positioning software application designed to process single-frequency code and phase observations for absolute or relative positioning. Published under a free and open-source license, goGPS can process data collected by any receiver, but focuses on the treatment of observations by low-cost receivers. goGPS algorithms can produce epoch-by-epoch solutions by least squares adjustment, or multi-epoch solutions by Kalman filtering, which can be applied to either positions or observations. It is possible to aid the positioning by introducing additional constraints, either on the 3D trajectory such as a railway, or on a surface, e.g., a digital terrain model. goGPS is being developed by a collaboration of different research groups, and it can be downloaded from http://www.gogps-project.org. The version used in this manuscript can be also downloaded from the GPS Toolbox Web site http://www.ngs.noaa.gov/gps-toolbox. This software is continues to evolve, improving its functionalities according to the updates introduced by the collaborators. We describe the main modules of goGPS along with some examples to show the user how the software works.
