Tech Chat | Introducing SingularConverter: Easier RINEX Data Conversion

In the realm of GNSS applications, beyond Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) surveying, static surveys play a crucial role. Often, the raw static data recorded by GNSS receivers is stored in a binary format to optimize storage space. However, for post-processing, the industry-standard RINEX format proves to be more readable and is widely employed in various static post-processing software. Today, let's delve into a useful tool, SingularConverter, designed specifically to convert binary data in the *.xyz format to RINEX data.

Introducing SingularConverter

SingularXYZ GNSS receivers, such as SV100-series and X1-series, default to using the *.xyz binary format for recording static data. And SingularConverter acts as the bridge between the compact XYZ format and the industry-standard RINEX format. This user-friendly tool simplifies the conversion process, making it accessible to both novices and experienced users in the GNSS field.

Using SingularConverter

Step 1: Run the Software

- Upon launching SingularConverter, the user is greeted with a simple and intuitive interface.

Step 2: Open the File

- Click "Select File" to select the XYZ format file for conversion.

Note: Avoid using non-English characters in the file path, as it may result in an empty output file.

Step 3: Save the Converted Data

- Click the file folder icon  to choose the destination for the converted RINEX file.

Note: Similar to input, the output file path should not contain non-English characters.

Step 4: Input Station Information

- Click "set" button to view and modify file information, such as the antenna type and measure type for accurate data conversion. Click "Confrim" to complete editing.

Step 5: Convert Data

- Click "Convert" button to run the conversion.

Step 6: Access Converted Files

- After conversion, locate the corresponding file in the chosen save path.

SingularConverter streamlines the process of converting GNSS data, ensuring compatibility and accessibility for various post-processing applications in the industry. You can directly contact SingularXYZ support team for this useful tool.
