A new forum has started this week based around the goGPS project. One of its objectives is to provide a low cost high accuracy GNSS solution, accuracy being in the 0.3 – 0.5m range. At the moment it is a research project. The history so far
"goGPS is a software package designed to improve the positioning accuracy of low-cost GPS devices by RTK technique and with the aid of a DTM. Currently it requires raw data coming from an u-blox receiver and from a (network of) permanent station(s) for real-time functioning.
goGPS development started in 2007 at the Geomatics Laboratory of Politecnico di Milano, Como campus (Italy), under the supervision of Dr. Mirko Reguzzoni, as a Master thesis project (Dominioni, Teruzzi). It was then continued during two other Master theses (Colla; Palmulli, Tettamanti) and one Ph.D. thesis (Realini).
goGPS v0.1prealpha code (MATLAB) was published as open source software in August 2009. Its development is now carried out jointly at Geomatics Laboratory by Dr. Reguzzoni and at Osaka City University (Japan) by Dr. Realini, who is currently hosted there as JSPS post-doctoral fellow by Prof. Venkatesh Raghavan. As a consequence of this collaboration, goGPS v0.1alpha version was published in February 2010.
goGPS development is currently supported by the GNSS network
services offered by GPSLombardia (Italy) and JENOBA (Japan)."
Had bookmarked this...I see the project is moving along regularly, any plans to add compatibility with receivers other than u-blox ? The only u-blox receiver I have handy right now is the SPOT GPS tracker (u-blox 5) and no way to access its data stream unfortunately.
