RTK SUB INCH ACCURACY

RTK accuracy is ideal for all farming applications.
Below are few applications that RTK corrections are commonly used in.

  • Row crop planting (Corn, soy beans, wheat, etc.)
  • Potatoes farming
  • Air Seeding
  • Bed forming
  • Planting / Drilling
  • Strip Till
  • Land leveling
  • Installing drainage systems, or tile pipe

What is RTK and how do I receive RTK corrections?

RTK (Real-Time Kinematic) is the highest accuracy correction source It uses either radio or cellular communications to transmit corrections. When using RTK with radio communications, you need access to a base station located within a eight-mile radius of your farm. An RTK base station sends corrections via radio transmission to the GPS receiver attached to your machine. Base stations can be purchased for individual farming use, or if a RTK service network is available in your area, you can access through a subscription service. RTK corrections can also be received through cellular communication using a modem. This is typically done using either a CORS (Continuously Operating Reference Stations ) network or a VRS™ (Virtual Reference Stations) network. CORS uses a single GPS/GNSS reference station to transmit RTK corrections to the cellular modem on your equipment. VRS™ networks are  integrated system of multiple GPS/GNSS reference stations spread out over a large area, typically 30–45 miles apart, and use a central server to communicate RTK corrections to the cellular modem in your machine. Access to CORS or VRS networks depends on if a network is established in your area, and usually requires a subscription.

CenterPoint™ RTX accuracy is ideal for the following applications:

  • Row crop planting (Corn, soy beans, wheat, etc.)
  • Air Seeding
  • Planting / Drilling
  • Mapping
  • Harvesting
  • Spraying
  • Spreading
  • Mowing

WAAS (6-8” Accuracy)

WAAS is a free correction source sponsored by the U.S. Government’s Federal Aviation Administration. It provides 6” – 8” pass to pass accuracy , but can only correct GPS signals. WAAS is best suited for broad acre applications, such as spraying or tillage.


WAAS correction is ideal for the following applications:

  • Spraying
  • Spreading
  • Mapping
  • Tillage
  • Mowing
