Alberding-QC (AQC) is a multi-purpose quality control tool designed for DGNSS, RTK and PPP service providers. Use this modular software suite to detect potential performance degradations, data format inconsistencies and service outages. Alberding-QC guarantees that you will be the first to detect malfunctions and service performance problems and not your clients. Alberding-QC integrates three real-time monitoring software modules into a single web interface:
RTK-Check is an RTK/network RTK performance monitoring module. Positioning accuracy and time to fix ambiguities (TTFA) are checked at regular intervals and the results are displayed in statistical tables and on time series plots. RTK-Check can be used with dedicated monitoring station receivers or in a central processing mode, using raw data input and an internal RTK positioning engine. The software connects to an Ntrip Caster and forwards RTK correction data from a user selected mountpoint to the monitoring receiver, which computes a cm accurate position. The position solution is accepted in NMEA 0183 standard format with up to 1 Hz update rate. Re-initialisations can be forced by periodically interrupting the correction data flow. Alert messages are automatically generated and sent to service operators if the positioning accuracy, the data age or other monitored parameters exceed preset limits or in case no RTK fixed solution could be reached within a given time frame.
InspectRTCM is a binary GNSS data decoder and visualisation software. It converts binary input data into ASCII text. Use InspectRTCM to analyse the contents of your data streams and detect potential format problems, missing or corrupt message types and high data delay. InspectRTCM supports RTCM 2.x, RTCM 3.x, CMR, CMR+, RTCA and various receiver binary formats. VRS streams are supported by sending NMEA GGA strings at user-defined intervals. InspectRTCM reads input data from Ntrip mountpoints, TCP, UDP and serial ports or log files. The software can also be used to determine the data rate of all message types in a real-time data stream.
Checkstream is a professional Ntrip Caster monitoring tool. You can use this software module to check the availability and consistency of mountpoints on one or more Ntrip Casters. Checkstream periodically samples the selected data streams to determine their availability for user-defined time spans. Moreover, it can also decode the data contents to detect format problems or high data age. Checkstream provides actual status information in a colour-coded status table and history data on time series bar graphs. It provides mountpoint availability information for normal working hours and 24/7. Checkstream shows data stream locations on a map.
