gLAB - Release Notes

gLAB v5.4.0

New highlighted features:

  • More code optimization for PPP! The optimization is in the precise orbit and clock data handling. Previously it saved all the data without empty samples or samples with 0s. Now, if there are missing samples, they are stored at a fixed rate (adding empty samples if necessary), therefore seeking for a specific sample is very fast. This reduces computational time in the following percentages (measured with a 24h +15 minute data file and with SP3 and CLK concatenated with 3 days of data and at 1Hz data rate):
    • CLK sampling rate 5min: Around 15% faster.
    • CLK sampling rate 30 seconds: Around 60% faster.
    • CLK sampling rate 5 seconds: Around 85% faster. 
  • Compatibility with Linux ARMv7(hf) and ARMv8 (aarch64)!. Previously, the command line and the plotting worked in this platforms. Now the GUI executables (in the Linux version) are also provided for Linux ARMv7(hf) and ARMv8 (aarch64).
  • On 64 bit Windows, the plotting tool is now provided with Python 3.6 64bit, instead of Python 2.6 32 bit. Python 3 is slightly faster and has improved memory usage. It should fix some problems when computing some errors when computing SBAS Availability, as well as enabling the option "Adjust to Margin" (Python 2.6 did not support this option). Furthermore, using 64 bit executable removes the 4GB memory limitation, which could be a problem when computing large SBAS plots (such as SBAS Ionosphesre Availability plots).
  • Command line help improved. For the processing core, now each option is separated by a blank line to ease readibility. In the plotting tool, in each parameter it is explicitly shown if it needs additional values or not.
  • In the processing core, several improvements for SBAS, especially for SBAS maps:
    • In SBAS processing, new option to make gLAB select the GEO with smallest protection levels in each epoch.
    • In SBAS processing, if in an epoch the geometry matrix is singular and GEO switching or mode switching is enabled, gLAB will change GEO or mode instead of just skipping the epoch without trying other GEO/modes.
    • In SBAS plots mode, if protection levels are above alarm limits, or geometry matrix is singular, gLAB will try another GEO if GEO switching is enabled, instead of just skipping the epoch at the given coordinate.
    • In SBAS plots mode, when computing DOP maps, if protection levels are above the alarm limits, the DOP in this epoch will not be accounted in the global DOP mean or percentile (previously, any epoch whose geometry matrix was invertible was accounted to the global DOP mean or percentile). In this way, outliers are filtered from the DOP mean, which could be easily biased from an epoch with very bad geometry.
    • Memory usage for SBAS DOP percentile maps have been halved by storing values for percentile computation as "float" type instead of "double" (although all computations are done with "double" type).
    • New SBAS plots manual (in command line mode, but also accesible in the GUI). It explains how SBAS plots are computed, and detailed instructions on how to join the output results from several days of computed SBAS maps.
    • gLAB can handle now any number of concurrent GEOs with alarm.
  • In the plotting tool, lots of improvements, specially for SBAS maps plots:
    • Added "Not Avail" bin to all SBAS plots. All coordinates with 0 epochs of data will be set to this bin.
    • Added CONUS, Alaska, Canada and Mexico FIRs. Each of them can be set independently from each other, including all its properties.
    • Now it is possible to set as many user defined FIRs as desired, and set its properties independently from each other.
    • FIR degradation text now by default will have the value of in the top of the colour bar bin , instead of "Avail".
    • FIR degradation text can now be shown automatically in a table format, very useful when there many differents FIRs.
    • FIR degradation text can be now also printed to standard output, or to a file or both. It is also possible to print the FIR and then exit the program without showing the plot or without  saving the plot to a file (useful for batch processing)
    • Continuity Risk maps can be shown also as percentges (service continuity value) , instead of the continuity risk.
    • Added new templates for SBAS maps. These templates are typically used for SBAS maps reports.
    • Many more improvements. See full list below.

Modifications and bug fixes:

  • Fixed a bug when reading observation RINEX files  that could mess up the internal satellite index if there were BeiDou, QZSS or IRNSS observations data before the GPS satellites.
  • Fixed several bugs related to multithreading.
  • Fixed discontinuity at the start of the day (or hour in hourly maps) not being accounted.
  • Fixed an infinite loop in backwards processing when there were two epochs with the same timestamps (one of them being a event epoch).
  • Much more, see full list below.

Future updates:

  • Measurement selection for cycle-slip detection and in the processing (in progress).
  • Multiconstellation (in progress). 
Date File name Type Description
2018/11/16 dataHandling.c added Added function 'qsort_compare_float' for comparing float values for the qsort(quick sort) C function.
Added function 'SBASGEOselection' for selection a GEO in SBAS mode.
Added function 'SBASGEOAlarmCheck' for checking alarm conditions in SBAS mode. Furthermore, gLAB is capable of handling any number of alarms is different GEOs at the same time, while before, it could handle only two (which could create errors if there more than two GEOs with alarm at the same time).
Added function 'SaveDataforGEOselection' for saving modelled data for each GEO with solution (when option select best GEO is enabled).
Added function 'SelectBestGEO' for selecting best GEO from the GEOs with solution (when option select best GEO is enabled).
changed Several 'static' variables in different functions have been changes to "const" (when possible) to ensure there are no race conditions with multithreading.
Several 'static' variables in different functions (specially in function 'meastype2measstr') now have below the OpenMP directive '#pragma omp threadprivate()' to avoid race conditions in multithreading.
Modified 'ConcatenateSP3' function. Before, when saving the orbit and clock data, it removed all epochs with 0s or invalid data. Now, it saves all data equally spaced in time (using the interval from the SP3 or clock file), adding 0s when necessary. In this way, it is easy to find the current sample to be used, as it is possible to compute the position of the sample by dividing the time passed from the start of SP3 data to the current epoch by the time interval, whereas before it had to cycle sample by sample until it found the desired one. For big files (such as 5 second clock files), it is a big speed boost when searching for the required samples.
Memory usage for DOP percentile computation has been halved by changing the  storage of the DOP values from type 'double' to 'float'. This only affects to the storage of the values, as all the computation to get the DOP values are computed using 'double' precision.
filter.c changed In SBAS availability maps, the epochs to be taken into account for computation for the HDOP, PDOP or GDOP mean or percentile computation must be the epochs that are under the protection levels. Before, any epoch whose DOP could be computed was taken into account for the mean and percentile. This made that epochs with very large DOP (e.g more than one million) would totally bias the mean DOP value.
Initialization of epoch values for computing the continuity risk is now done in the gLAB.c instead. This is faster, as the initialization is checked only once, while before it was checked every time there was a PA solution. This applies for SBAS navigation and SBAS availability maps modes.
In SBAS or DGNSS modes, if geometry matrix is singular, it will try to change GEO or mode in SBAS or to SPP mode in DGNSS instead of directly skipping the solution.
If option to select best GEO is enabled, for each iteration where there is an available solution, it will save the modelled data and protection levels, and keep looping through all GEOs. Then, from the GEOs with solution, it will selected the one with smallest protection levels.
fixed Fixed initialization of values for computing the continuity risk. Before the initial value for the last epoch with PA solution was the first epoch with PA solution, while now it is one epoch before the first epoch processed. This applies for SBAS navigation and SBAS availability maps modes.
Fixed discontinuities that started in the first epoch processed were not detected. It only affected the maritime continuity risk computation, as there was a discontinuity not taken into account. It didn't affect the aviation continuity risk computation, as there were no PA epochs before that discontinuity. This applies for SBAS navigation and SBAS availability maps modes. The error was due to the initialization of values for computing the continuity risk.
Fixed computation of stable period in the first discontinuity computed (only occurred if the first processed epoch had a PA solution). Before, the size of the stable period prior to the discontinuity would be one epoch smaller than the real value. This would affect the aviation continuity risk computation only if the length of the stable period was smaller than the window size, thus affecting one epoch less (due to that when the stable period is smaller than the window size, the number of affected epochs is the lenght of the stable period). This applies for SBAS  navigation and SBAS availability maps modes. The error was due to the initialization of values for computing the continuity risk.
gLAB.c added Added option '-print:progressalways' for forcing gLAB to printing the progress bar to the terminal even if the output is piped or gLAB is not able to detect if output is a terminal or not. By default, gLAB disables the progress bar if the starndard output is piped, to avoid potentially messing up the input of the next command (for instance, a pipe to 'less' or 'more' commmands). For other cases (for example, piping to an 'awk' or 'grep' command), it is safe to print the progress bar, as when the standard output is not a terminal, gLAB reopens it in a different file descriptor, therefore output prints and progress bar are not mixed.
Added option '-sbasplotsinfo' (also accepted as '-sbasmapsinfo') for showing a new manual section about the necessary files for computing SBAS maps and the scripts for joining the output of multiple SBAS maps output files into a single file.
Added option '-model:selectbestgeo' for SBAS mode to make gLAB compute the SBAS model with all GEO available and select then the one with smallest protection levels.
Added check in SBAS plots mode for start epoch of navigation messages. If they start two days before the current day or earlier, a warning message will be shown, as this means that the navigation file is from another day or there are navigation messages from previous dates or the transmission time of the navigation messages are incorrect.
Added check in SBAS plots mode for start epoch of navigation messages. If it does not start at least 2 hours before the current processing day, a warning message will be printed. Not adding this 2 hours may do that navigation messages are missing at the start of the day.
Added check in SBAS plots mode for end epoch of navigation messages. If it does not  end at least 2 hours after the current processing day, a warning message will be  printed. Not adding this 2 hours may do that navigation messages are missing at the end of the day.
Added check in SBAS plots for DOP percentiles options. If user sets the option to compute the DOP percentiles (option '-sbasplots:doppercentile') but did not enable any DOP map (such as HDOP, PDOP or GDOP), an error message will be shown and gLAB will exit. Previously, in this case an INFO message was printed stating that DOP percentile computation had been enabled, but no DOP percentiles were computed.
Added INFO message in SBAS plots mode stating that navigation data files available usually have missing navigation messages and that the user should create one from several sources.
Added INFO message in SBAS plots mode about the multithread version of gLAB, which can significantly reduce computation time.
Added INFO message in processing mode and SBAS plots mode stating if message type 0 is ignored or not.
Added INFO message in processing mode and SBAS plots mode stating if message type 0 is read as type 2 message.
Added INFO messages in SBAS plots mode with the timeouts of the SBAS messages.
changed Command line help now have a blank line between each option in order to ease readibility.
If option '-numthreads' is provided to the gLAB version compiled without multithreading, it will now show an error message stating that it is not the multithread version, instead of showing an "unknown option" error.
In SBAS plots mode, if with one GEO the geometry matrix is singular or the protection levels are over the alarm limits, if GEO switching is enabled, instead of skipping the epoch, it will try another GEO.
INFO message with window size in SBAS plots mode now show the unit of the window size (seconds).
Disabled satellite navigation message health check flag by default in SBAS mode. According to MOPS, SBAS can override the health flag.
Parameter description and help messages now indicate that all input or output time tags are in GPS time.
Updated help messages.
fixed Fixed several warnings which appeared when compiling with gcc7.
Fixed bug in SBAS plots mode that made to try to create an empty SBAS discontinuity file  when the continuity risk map was disabled. This made gLAB to exit with the following error message: "ERROR Opening output file [] for SBAS solution discontinuities".
Fixed global variables 'printbufferMODEL', 'printbufferSBASCORR', 'printbufferSBASVAR', 'printbufferSBASIONO' and 'printbufferSBASUNSEL' declared as local global variables  (in file 'gLAB.c') instead of using the ones declared in file 'output.c'.
gLAB_GUI added First gLAB version where the GUI is also compiled for ARMv7(hf) and aarch64(ARMv8 64bit) in Linux platforms.
Added link "ftp://cddis.gsfc.nasa.gov/pub/gps/products/mgex/" in the menu "Download Data: Precise Files".
Added links "https://ftp.ngs.noaa.gov/ANTCAL/LoadFile?file=ngs14.atx" and "https://ftp.ngs.noaa.gov/ANTCAL/LoadFile?file=ngs08.atx" in the menu "Download Data: Other Files".
Added manual "gLAB command line SBAS maps description" in the menu "User manuals".
Added option "Select Best GEO" in SBAS options.
changed Changed "Runge-Kutta" effect to "Runge effect" in all the tooltips.
Changed error message when generating equivalent command line instructions. Instead of "configuration file again" the text is "command line instruction again".
In Linux, system library "libjasper" is now statically linked, as this library is no longer provided in Ubuntu 18.
When compiling in Linux, the output filename will change according to the platform being built (x86,x86_64, ARMv7hf, ARM64).
Updated tooltips to indicate that all time tags are in GPS time.
Updated/corrected several tooltips.
fixed Fixed compilation of gLAB GUI in Qt5.10 or greater (in these Qt versions it was necessary to add the preprocessor statement "#include <QDoubleValidator>" in header files glab_gui.h and coord_converter.h).
Fixed incorrect tab order in several elements in the GUI.

Added option '--writetofilefirdegtext' for writing to a file the FIR degradation text. If option '--firdegtexttable' is set, the whole table will be written to the file.
Added option '--onlyprintfirdegtext' for making the program to exit after printing the FIR degradation text but without showing the SBAS availability maps (useful for batch processing).

Added option '--textmarkposition' for setting the position of the text mark. Set this option for each text mark.
Added check for empty input files. If input file is empty, it will show an error message and exit, instead of showing empty plots or crashing.
Added check for values for the colourbar bins. Now values outside the nominal ranges will not be accepted ([0-100] for availability and ionosphere availability maps, [0-1] for continuity risk and maritime continuity risk and [0-infinite] for DOP maps).
Added missing check for assuring that the number of colours provided for the SBAS ionosphere availability map matches the number of bins in the colourbar.
Added checks for the contour lines to be computed. Now it will not let you set the value of the smallest bin (as this makes the python function to crash). Furthermore, if one of the defined bins does not appear in any of the positions in the map, the contour line for this bin will be skipped, as this case made the python function to show incorrect contour lines.
Added check for Python versions >=2.7.15 and >=3.6 in SBAS availability maps. In these versions it is necessary to set greater margins in order to fit the horizontal legend or the colourbar bin texts.
changed In 64 bit Windows, python is now distributed with Python 3.6.6 64bit, instead of Python 2.6 32 bit (in Windows 32-bit still remains Python 2.6 32 bit).
Help message now shows explicitly the values that must be provided to the parameters (if required), by showing next to the parameter '<text>' (a text is required), '#' (a numerical value is required),  '#,#,...' (a list of numerical values is required), etc.
Option '--bineqcond' is now also accepted as '--BinEqCond'.
Option '--fireu' is now also accepted as '--FIREu'.
It is possible to define as many user defined FIR areas as needed, instead of just one, by  using the parameter '--firuser' as many times as necessary. Each user defined FIR area properties can be defined independently, by providing the parameters for setting the user defined FIR area properties as many times as necessary (in the same order as given in option '--firuser').
User defined FIRs are now also plotted in worst integrity maps.
European FIR area or used defined FIR area can now be set both at the same time. Moreover, any hard-coded FIR area can be set independently from any other FIR area set (including its drawing properties).
Option '--firdegtext' now can also print the number of points over the bin value inside the  FIR area, the number of points below below the bin value inside the FIR area, the total number of points inside the FIR area and the total number of points in the whole plot.
If the bin with value '100' in SBAS availability or ionosphere availability map is set and the option '--bineqcond' is set, this bin will appear with the default of text '=100' instead of '≥100'.
If the bin with value '0' in SBAS continuity risk, maritime continuity risk or DOP maps is set and the option '--bineqcond' is set, this bin will appear with the default of text '=0' instead of '≤0'.
In standard 2D plots, space for a title with up to three lines will be left even if option '--atm' is disabled (before the space was left only if '--atm' option was enabled).
If option '--firdegtext' is provided, FIR degradation computation will be automatically enabled (so it matches the behaviour of options '--firdegtextsize', '--firdegtextcolor' and '--firdegtextposition', which automatically enabled the FIR degradation computation).
Error messages due to invalid values in parameters or in input files will now always show the invalid value in the error message (except for user defined column numbers).
Errors due to incorrect colour or line type are now captured and show in an error message, instead of printing the Python's full traceback (except in Windows).
Parameter '--availcontourlevels' now can also be called as '--availcontourlines'. Both options are equally valid.
Parameter '--contriskcontourlevels' now can also be called as '--contriskcontourlines'. Both options are equally valid.
Parameter '--contriskmarcontourlevels' now can also be called as '--contriskmarcontourlines'. Both options are equally valid.
Changed behaviour when an invalid parameter is given. Now, instead of printing the help and the error message, it will just print the error message.
If user sends SIGINT signal (Ctrl+c in Unix terminal), the program will terminate without printing the traceback (except on Windows).
Changed option name from '--FIRDegrafation' to '--FIRDegradation' due to it was a typo in the name, as the lower case option is '-firdegradation'. The previous name '--FIRDegrafation' will still be accepted for backwards compatibility.
Changed slightly the input of parameter '--contriskmarbincolors', as now the colour of the "NA" (Not Available) bin must not be provided, where as before it had to be provided. The colour of the "NA" bin is now changed with parameter '--notavailbincolor'.
Changed value formatting in error message when checking user defined contour values for continuity risk and maritime continuity risk maps. The offending value will be printed with exponential format instead of decimal format, in order to prevent that values smaller than 0.1 (such as 1e-3) is not shown as '0.0'.
String formatting in all the graph.py code now uses the new python formatting style ("{0:s}".format(val)) instead of the old formatting style ("%s" %val).
Changed the reference coordinate system to 'axes fraction' (that is, coordenate origin is at  the bottom left of the figure) for all user defined positions for watermark, textmark and SBAS maps degradation text.
If user sets bins over 99.9 (99.99, 99.999,...) the plot margins will auto adjust to fit the number in the colourbar text.
fixed Fixed bin "100.0" text in colourbar going out of the borders when user manually selected  the "100.0" bin in SBAS availability and ionosphere availability maps.
Fixed user defined FIR text (option '--firdegtext') not working when using Python3.
Fixed world maps/integrity maps/station maps not working with old Linux distributions using Python 2.6 (e.g. Ubuntu 10.04).
Fixed division by zero when computing the degradation values when there were no points inside the European FIR or user defined FIR area.
Fixed legend not appearing in station maps when only the station name was printed.
Fixed the string "DOP" being replaced for the DOP map type when the title has been defined the user (it had to occur only when the title was automatically set).
Fixed error in Python 2 when station names was a number. Now the number will read as the name, instead of crashing.
In SBAS DOP plots, if the number of epochs were 0, then the mean and percentile DOP was also 0, therefore this points were plotted to be under the minimum DOP threshold set (by default, shown in red colour), which was incorrect. Now, when the number of epochs is 0, this points will be internally set as "999", so they are shown in the greatest bin.
SBAS plots with an aspect ratio of 1.4 or below (defined as (MaxLon-MinLon)/(MaxLat-MinLon)  or the relation with the width and height) were plotted incorrectly (labels, title or even the image was out of bounds) due to an incorrect size handling inside Python libraries. It has been fixed by forcing to leave margins in the plots.
For default SBAS plots (EGNOS default coverage area), if option '--prntextnewline' was enabled, the title would go out of bounds. Now the margin will increase in order to leave space for the extra line.
Fixed bug that made European FIR in station maps use the properties from the user defined FIRs, instead of the European FIR properties.
Fixed bug that made to apply maritime continuity risk contour levels to non maritime Continuity risk.
Some parameters which were expected to be provided only once (in concrete '--availbincolors', '--contriskbincolors', '--contriskmarbincolors', '--ionoavailbincolors', '--hdopbincolors', '--pdopbincolors', '--gdopbincolors', '--firdegtextbinseu', '--xtickslist' and '--ytickslist') would mess up the results or crash the program if they were provided more than once, as it mixed all the data provided each time the parameter was provided. Now it will only use the data given the last time the parameter is read.
Fixed "IOError: [Errno 32] Broken pipe" exception when the help was shown ('-h' parameter) and the output was redirected to a pipe (for instance, a pipe to the 'less' command), and the pipe was closed before reaching the end of the help.
input.c added Added check in SBAS plots mode for data for convergence time in SBAS data file. If there is a convergence time of 15 minutes or more, a message is printed with the detected convergence time. Otherwise a warning is printed stating that there is no data for convergence time.
Added function 'getEpochFromObsFile'. This function reads one line of the observation file, reads the timestamp and then moves the file pointer one line back.
changed Updated 'readPosFile' function to the save the reference position data with the new internal format for SP3 orbits (data is now saved equally spaced in time, adding 0s when necessary).
Changed behaviour with SBAS message type 0 (alarm message). Before, if the alarm message was not filled with 0, the alarm flag is not triggered. Now, anytime an alarm message is received, the alarm will be triggered except when the alarm message is not filled with zeros and the alarm message is read as type 2 message.
fixed Fixed memory leak in functions 'readRINEXB' and 'readEMS' due to the condition to free memory was never met.
Fixed gLAB not printing the progress bar when the first epoch was an event epoch and the following had the same timestamp. This made that the file interval estimation was 0, and the number of estimated epochs in file was infinite (double variable overflow), therefore, the 0.1% increase percentage of epochs completed was never reached and thus the progress bar was not updated.
Fixed infinite loop in backwards processing when an event epoch and the following had the same timestamp.
Fixed bug that made not to enable the internal gLAB flag that an alarm message had been received when mixed GEO was not enabled. This made that if a GEO received an alarm, it entered the one minute cooldown time, but the minute cooldown never ended (due to the alarm flag was not enabled). During the cooldown time, all GEO messages must be ignored, therefore the GEO data buffer got frozen since the epoch of the alarm received until the  end of file. This bug only occured in version 5.3.0.
model.c changed Modified 'getPositionSP3' and 'getClockSP3' functions for making them work with the new internal format of saving SP3 data.
Removed GEO selection and GEO alarm check from function 'computeSBAS' to avoid race conditions in multithreading. This checks are now done in functions 'SBASGEOselection' and 'SBASGEOAlarmCheck' (defined in 'dataHandling.c' file), which are called in 'gLAB.c' file after the SBAS data is read. This fixes weird unavailability areas (such as a thin horizontal line in SBAS maps with multithreading and more than two GEOs with alarm.
fixed Fixed bug that made to never select a GEO satellite when GEO satellite selection was set the one with highest elevation and mixed GEO data was not enabled. This bug only occured in version 5.3.0.
output.c added Added function 'printBuffersBestGEO' for printing data buffered when option select best GEO is enabled. If option 'printSBASUNUSED' is enabled, it will print first all the messages from the discarded GEOs.
Added INFO message for GEO acquisition time.
Added INFO message for GEO switching cooltime.
changed Several 'static' variables in different functions now have below the OpenMP directive '#pragma omp threadprivate()' to avoid race conditions in multithreading.
fixed Fixed last epoch of discontinuities ocurring at the end of each hour (except at hour 23) being computed with an extra epoch at the end (the first epoch of the next hour). That is, these discontinuities were an epoch longer due to the last epoch was considered as the first epoch of the next hour, instead of the last epoch of the current hour. This  did not affect the continuity risk computation.
Fixed incorrect number given in "Total epochs missing in observation file (during summary period and decimated" and in "Total epochs missing in observation file (during summary  period)" reported in the summary (in all modes) when decimation was greater than the observation file data interval.
preprocessing.c changed Function 'checkCycleSlips' now have most of the local variables declared inside the main for loop. This allows the compiler to do small optimizations, and also simplify the '#pragma omp' directive.

gLAB v5.3.0

New highlighted features:

  • Code optimization! This reduces computational time in the following percentages (measured with a 24h data file):
    • SPP/PPP: Around 10% faster.
    • SBAS: Around 30% faster.
    • DGNSS with RINEX or RTCM2: Around 10% faster.
    • DGNSS with RTCM3: Around 50% faster.
  • Added EGM96 geoid model to KML files. This is the geoid model that Google Earth uses, therefore, now heights in the KML file should match with the ones in Google Earth.
  • Statistical summary now includes the 95 percentile (or user defined percentile) and the maximum value of PDOP, GDOP, TDOP, HDOP and VDOP.
  • Statistical summary now includes the number of epochs missing, the number of data gaps and the maximum size of the data gaps in the RINEX observation file (for DGNSS with RINEX file, it is also included the same data for the reference station file).
  • SBAS Maps mode now also computes HDOP, PDOP and GDOP maps (the median and the user defined percentile value).
  • New options for the station maps. Now it is possible to set a marker instead of just the name (or both). The markers and names can now be grouped by station networks, allowing to set the marker size, type or colour and the name size, colour and alignment independently for each network.
  • New options for the SBAS availability maps. Now user can set the number, values and colours of the bins, set if the thresholds must be "equal than" instead of "greater than". It is also possible to plot the European FIR area (or a user defined area) and compute the availability in that region.
  • Added SBAS HDOP, PDOP and GDOP maps.
  • Added HDOP and PDOP filters (in navigation and SBAS plots mode). HDOP and PDOP filters conditions can be logically ORed (that is, for a given epoch, only one of the conditions have to be met).
  • Added computation for Maritime Continuity Risk (fixed window) according to IALA (International Association of Marine Aids to Navigation and Lighthouse Authorities).
  • Changed SBAS Maritime defaults. In addition to disabling MT10,27 and 28, it will also enable GEO switching, set HDOP filter to 4, set PDOP filter to 6, set HDOP and PDOP conditions being ORed, set alarm limits to 100Km and set the window size to 900 samples (15 minutes).

Modifications and bug fixes:

  • Disabled check for non-ASCII characters in filenames. If your system terminal can handle the non-ASCII characters, gLAB will also handle them, and viceversa.
  • Fixed a bug in SBAS mode that made to timeout all RRC values under alarm conditions.
  • Fixed a bug in SBAS that added a false discontinuity to all SBAS hourly files at the end of each hour (except at hour 00)
  • Fixed bug that made to always compute the 95 percentile in the summaries independently of the user provided value.

Future updates:

  • Measurement selection for cycle-slip detection and in the processing (in progress).
  • Multiconstellation (in progress). 
Date File name Type Description
2018/06/08 dataHandling.c added Added data table with EGM96 grid with 1x1 degree resolution. This is the geoid model used in Google Earth.
changed Removed 'satIs' function. The function has been replaced by a index lookup  in a matrix array. All the function calls to 'satIs' in other files have also been replaced. This change reduces computation time around 10% in all processing modes except for SBAS plots.
In function 'getMeasModelValue', the search for a satellite position is done using a dictionary instead of a for loop (faster search).
Changed the default marker name from an empty string to "----". If the marker name in the RINEX observation file was empty or not present, the marker name was an empty string, thus making all the output SBAS messages and the last line of the summary (in all modes) to have the marker name (or receiver name) to be an empty string, which, in practice, made the mesages have one column less, which changed the column number for all items after the marker name (and in consequence, breaking all programs and scripts looking for a specific column).
filter.c fixed Fixed a bug when quantizing Stanford-ESA values due to an unsigned integer overflow when very large values of error or protection level occurred. This made that in the Stanford-ESA output plot file MIs with very large error did not appear.
Fixed incorrect INFO message generated when DOP threshold was exceeded and gLAB tried to do a GEO or mode switch. gLAB wrote in the info message "Trying to switch GEO or to NPA mode" even if one of the options (GEO switching or mode switching) was not enabled, instead of writing just "Trying to switch GEO" or "Trying to switch to NPA mode". Nevertheless, the bug affected only when writing the INFO message, not at processing level.
gLAB.c added Added validity check for user provided inclusion area coordinates in SBAS plots mode.
Added parameters '-filter:maxhdop' and '-filter:maxpdop' for setting a maximum HDOP or PDOP.
Added parameter '-filter:hdoporpdop' for setting a combined threshold of HDOP or PDOP. When setting this parameter and HDOP and PDOP thresholds are set, a valid epoch will be any that is under any of the two thresholds (HDOP or PDOP) instead of both.
Added parameters '-sbasplots:hdopplot', '-sbasplots:pdopplot', '-sbasplots:gdopplot' and '-output:sbascombdopplots' for computing SBAS HDOP, PDOP and GDOP plots or all of them in the DOP combined file.
Added parameter '-sbasplots:doppercentile' for enabling computation of DOP percentiles in DOP maps.
Added parameters '-output:sbashdopplots', '-output:sbaspdopplots', '-output:sbasgdopplots' and for setting output filenames for HDOP, PDOP and GDOP maps.
Added parameter '-summary:windowsizemar' for setting the fixed window size for SBAS maritime continuity risk.
Added parameter '-summary:stationnetworkname' for setting a station network name in the summary. This is useful for doing station network maps.
Added parameter '-sbasplots:windowsizemar' for setting the window size for computing continuity risk using the SBAS maritime formula.
Added parameter '-sbasplots:noriskmarplot' for not computing continuity risk using the formula from SBAS maritime.
Added parameter '-output:sbasriskmarplots' for setting the output filename for continuity risk mask with SBAS maritime formula.
Added parameter '-output:kml:egm96geoid' for adding the height from the EGM96 geoid model to the output coordinates in the KML file.
Added progress message 'RINEX data processing finished. Computing Summary...' when epochs processing is finished and the summary values are being computed.
Added INFO message in SBAS plots mode for Continuity risk window size (for both sliding and fixed).
Added INFO message in SBAS plots mode when the hourly maps are disabled.
changed Changed parameter name from '-model:satellitehealth' to '-model:sathealth', although the old format is still accepted.
Klobuchar ionosphere model is now allowed in SBAS plots mode.
fixed Fixed a crash when user forced NPA mode in SBAS plots mode.
Fixed a crash when converting RTCM3 files to RINEX.
Fixed deprecated warning messages being printed in the standard output instead of the output file.
gLAB_GUI added Added link "ftp://icvficheros.icv.gva.es/Datos/", "ftp://rgapa.cartografia.asturias.es/RINEX/" and "ftp://ftp.geodesia.ign.es/ERGNSS/" in the menu "RINEX files from Institutions->Spain"
Added menu "Coastal Services" inside the "RINEX files from Institutions" menu.
Added link "ftp://ftp.sonel.org/gps/data/" in the "Coastal Services" menu.
Added a second text box in the "Window Size" line in the "Print Summary" groupbox in the OUTPUT section. This second text box is for setting the window size for maritime continuity risk computation.
Added button "Geoid Height" in the KML options for applying EGM96 geoid model when writing the coordinates to the KML file.
Added new groupbox "DOP Filters" in the FILTER tab in order to put all DOP filter options.
Added buttons "Max. HDOP", "Max.PDOP" and "HDOP OR PDOP" in the "DOP Filters" groupbox.
Added new text box for the window size in the "Summary" options. This box is for setting the value of the fixed window.
changed Changed "Max. GDOP" options from the "Other Options" groupbox to the "DOP Filters" groupbox.
Changed "Sliding Window Size" label to "Window Size (Sliding/Fixed)" in order to the account for the new method for computing the continuity risk.
Changed link from "ftp://geofons.icc.cat/rinex/horari_1s/" to "ftp://geofons.icc.cat/rinex/" in the menu "RINEX files from Institutions->Spain"
Changed label name from "Sliding Window Size" to "Window Size" in the "Print Summary" groupbox in the OUTPUT section. This is due there are two text boxes, one for each mode of computing the continuity risk. The new mode, the maritime mode, does not use a sliding window.
Reduced size of "SBAS messages" and "DGNSS messages" groupbox in the OUTPUT tab in order to leave more space to the "Summary" groupbox.
Changed SBAS maritime default options. Now, in addition to disabling MT10, MT 28 and MT28, it will also enable GEO switching, HDOP filter, PDOP filter, "HDOP OR PDOP" option and also set both alarm limits to 100Km and the window sizes to 900.
Disabled check for non-ASCII characters in filenames. If your system terminal can handle the non-ASCII characters, gLAB will also handle them, and viceversa.
In Windows, the option "Expand figure to Margin" in the Analysis page has been hidden, as the python version used in Windows does not support this option.
In Linux and Mac, if Stanford-ESA, KML output, "TimeStamp" and "Range" options are all enabled, the checkbox "Geoid Height" and the label "Decimation" will change to "Geoid H" and "Dec" respectively for fitting in the screen.
Updated/corrected several tooltips.
fixed Fixed bug that made not to set KML timestamp options when running gLAB, showing the command line instruction or creating the configuration file.
Fixed bug that made not check the "Range" button inside the KML timestamps when loading a configuration file.
Fixed bug that made not to unhide the text box with the number of epochs to reach steady state in the FILTER tab when the DGNSS template was set.
graph.py added Added option '--stanetwithnames' to enable showing station names in the station map (in previous version, station map only showed station names. Now it can show the station name, a marker or both).
Added options '--stanetdefaultnamesize', '--stanetdefaultnamecolor' and '--stanetdefaultnamealign' for setting the station name default size, colour and alignment respectively.
Added option '--stanetwithmarkers' for adding a marker in the station map.
Added options '--stanetdefaultmarkertype', '--stanetdefaultmarkersize' and '--stanetdefaultmarkercolor' for setting the station marker default type, size and colour respectively.
Added option '--stanet' for setting the input file column number for reading the station network name.
Added option '--stanetautolabel' for enabling a label for each station network in the station map.
Added option '--stanetdefaultlabel' for setting the default label for the station network.
Added option '--stanetlabel' for setting a label on a specific station network in the station map.
Added options '--stanetmarkertype', '--stanetmarkercolor', '--stanetmarkersize' for setting a marker type, marker colour or marker size (respectively) on a specific station network in the station map.
Added options '--stanetnamecolor', '--stanetnamesize', '--stanetnamealign' for setting a name colour, name size or name alignment (respectively) on a specific station network in the station map.
Added new plots for SBAS plots: Maritime Continuity Risk, HDOP, PDOP and GDOP.
Added option '--bineqcond' for setting the bin threshold to be "greater equal" or "less equal" instead of "greater" or "less" in SBAS plots.
Added options '--availmapbins', '--contriskmapbins', '--contriskmarmapbins', '--ionoavailmapbins', '--hdopmapbins', '--pdopmapbins', '--gdopmapbins' for manually setting the number of bins and its thresholds values for SBAS Availability, Continuity Risk, Maritime Continuity Risk, Iono Availability, HDOP, PDOP and GDOP maps respectively.
Added options '--availcontourlevels', '--contriskcontourlevels', '--contriskmarcontourlevels' for setting the contour levels for SBAS Availability, Continuity Risk and Maritime Continuity Risk respectively.
Added options '--availbincolors', '--contriskbincolors', '--contriskmarbincolors', '--ionoavailbincolors', '--hdopbincolors', '--pdopbincolors' and --gdopbincolors'  for changing the colourbar bin colours for SBAS Availability, Continuity Risk, Maritime Continuity Risk, Iono Availability, HDOP, PDOP and GDOP maps respectively.
Added option '--doppercentileplot' for making the percentile HDOP, PDOP and GDOP plots (in addition to the HDOP, PDOP and GDOP median plots).

Added option '--firdegtext', '--firdegtextsize', '--firdegtextcolor' and '--firdegtextposition' for setting the text to be written, the text size, the text colour and the text position for the FIR degradation.
input.c added Added an INFO message when a data gap in the observation RINEX file is found. It includes the number of epochs missing and the epoch where the data gap was detected.
Added check for SBAS messages that are not from L1 when reading a RINEX-B file. Now, if a message from L5 is found, it will be ignored, instead of decoding it an mixing its data with the L1 messages (which disrupted L1 data if messages from L5 had the same message types as in L1).
Added capatibility to use RTKlib's output file with geodetic coordinates (in the file, they appear as 'lat/lon/height=WGS84/geodetic') as a reference position file. In this output file format, the coordinates have the EGM96 geoid model added to the height coordinate.
changed When mixed GEO is not enabled (which nearly always occur), the update of SBAS messages for the mixed GEO is disabled in the 'updateSBASdata' function. This reduces around 20% the processing time in SBAS mode.
In function 'converterRTCM3', some checks and progress bar percentage update now are done every time a start of message is detected, instead of every time a byte of data is read from the RTCM3 file (when searching for a new message). This reduces processing time when using a RTCM3 file around 40%.
Removed "dictionaryUpdate' function. The dictionary is now updated when a satellite is read.
fixed Fixed an infinite loop when processing in DGNSS mode with RTCM2 and the RTCM2 file ended before the rover observation file. It ocurred after the current epoch was ahead of the last RTCM2 correction, thus making gLAB infinitely trying to read the next correction even though the file had ended.
model.c fixed Fixed bug in computation of RRC corrections under alarm conditions that made RRC corrections always timeout under alarm conditions.
output.c added Added INFO message for HDOP, PDOP and HDOPorPDOP thresholds options.
Added INFO message for KML files EGM96 geoid model option.
Added in SPP/PPP/SBAS/DGNSS summaries the number of epochs with data gap. The data gap count is breakdown in different messages. If no epochs were decimated, it will show the number of data gaps in during the summary period all data gaps in the whole file. If data was decimated, it will show the number of data gaps not decimated in the summary period (i.e. the data gap had en epoch in the summary period which would have been processed), the number of data gaps in the summary period which only had epochs that would have been decimated and the total number of data gaps in the whole file.
Added in SPP/PPP/SBAS/DGNSS summaries the percentile and maximum values of of HDOP, VDOP, PDOP, GDOP and TDOP. This values have also been added to the last line of the summary.
Added in SBAS summary the continuity risk for maritime. It has also been added in the last line of the summary.
Added computation of EGM96 geoid height when writing to the KML file.
changed Changed in SBAS summary the line "Continuity Risk" to "Continuity Risk Airborne".
fixed Fixed bug when checking for discontinuity at the end of the hour in hourly SBAS continuity risk maps. This bug made that a false discontinuity was always added at all hourly maps except at hour 0.
Fixed bug in SBAS summary that made the percentage of line "Total epochs skipped (any reason)" not being 0 when no epoch had been included in the summary.
Fixed bug in SPP/PPP/SBAS/DGNSS summaries that made to always compute the 95 percentile instead of the user defined percentile.

Added Summary option in "OUTPUT" tab.
changed Changed link from "ftp://cddis.gsfc.nasa.gov/gnss/data/campaign/mgex/daily/rinex3/2014/brdm/" to "ftp://cddis.gsfc.nasa.gov/gnss/data/campaign/mgex/daily/rinex3/2013/brdm/". The link points to the same URL, except for the year, which is 2013 instead of 2014. This is done in order to point to the oldest data available, which is from year 2013.
Changed ".*GPS_Receiver_Types" to ""*GPS_Receiver_Types*" regular expression in file explorer in order to show files named as "GPS_Receiver_Types" (with no extension).
Changed link name in the "Other files" download data menu from "Multiconstellation DCB files:" to "SINEX BIAS DSB files (multiconstellation DCBs for converting measurements):" in order to show an accurate description of the file content.

be able to select files without extension.
User can now introduce decimal number in the user defined SNR threshold.
If gLAB core is executed in any mode in the GUI, and it exits with an ERROR message before creating the output file (that is, the ERROR is written to standard output, the GUI will now be able to read the ERROR message and show it to the user.
Removed units of GDOP option in "Filter" tab and in the Analysis mode (Dilution of Precision template). The previous unit was meters, when this measurement is adimensional.
Removed SBAS summary groupbox in SBAS option in the "MODELLING" tab.
Start gLAB image now covers the full extent of the "INPUT" tab instead of leaving some white space on the bottom.
Updated/corrected several tooltips.

Fixed labels and textboxes in the "Ionosphere Source" in the "Input" tab sometimes showing with a smaller size than the rest of the elements or not being correctly centered.
Fixed incorrect unchecking of radioButtons "StdDev from SBAS messages" and StdDev from DGNSS "Filter" tab after being clicked. This radioButtons have to be always checked (is the only option for the standard deviaton in SBAS and DGNSS modes).
graph.py added Added option '--no-lock-file' for not creating the ".plot.lock" file.
Added option '--SBASSystemname' (or '--sbassystemname') for changing the "SBAS" word in the SBAS maps default title for any user defined SBAS system name.

Changed default size of the watermark in SBAS maps. The size has been changed from 8 to 15.
fixed The "os.remove(LockFile)" instruction is now inside a try/catch. This is to avoid a
rare race condition that occurs when multiple instances of "graph.py" are executed
in parallel and one of them erases the "LockFile" (.plot.lock) after the check that
the "LockFile" exists but before the "os.remove(LockFile)" instruction is executed.
When this race condition ocurred, the program crashed before creating the plot.

Added SPP, PPP and DGNSS summary.
Added start and end epoch to summary.
changed Changed print order of SBAS summary line "Total epochs skipped due to GDOP exceeding ...". Now it will be printed just below the other lines containing "Total epochs skipped due to ...".
Changed all lines in the SBAS summary containing "Total samples" to "Total geometries".

gLAB v5.1.3

New highlighted features:

  • Concatenated IONEX files (with headers) are now supported.

Modifications and bug fixes:

  • Fixed crash when reading RINEX precise clock files and there was a line entry of a station whose name started with 'G' or 'R' or 'E' or 'S' or 'C' or 'J' or 'I' and the remaining three letters of the station name where all numbers (for example 'AR S011 2008 05 12 00 10  0.000000  2    0.764667861953E-03').
  • Fixed wrong ARP correction applied to reference station in DGNSS mode
  • Changed some OpenMP multithread directives for slightly improving multithread performance.
  • Several bug fixes and improvements. See full list below.

Future updates:

  • Measurement selection for cycle-slip detection and in the processing.
  • Multiconstellation!!! 
Date File name Type Description
2018/01/19 gLAB.c added Added a INFO message with the list of SBAS GEO satellites excluded (for SBAS plots mode).
Concatenated IONEX files are now supported, for both ionsphere data and DCB data.
changed Improved handling of concatenated files for Klobuchar/BeiDou ionosphere parameters. Now it will only read new parameters from next day when the observation file changes day. Before it could read them when the observation file changed day or when the broadcast orbits had expired.
Changed OpenMP directives "#pragma omp critical" to "#pragma omp atomic". Atomic statements are faster as they require less overhead, they don't block other threads operations (except for the current atomic one) and do not require to be named in order to distinguish between the atomic sections (unnamed critical sections block all threads accessing any unnamed critical section).
fixed Fixed bug that made gLAB show an error message and exit in positioning mode when a concatenated RINEX navigation file was read.
gLAB_GUI changed Removed links "ftp://serenad-public.cnes.fr/SERENAD0/FROM_NTMF/" in  RINEX navigation and SBAS files links list. The new links are with "ftp://serenad-public.cnes.fr/SERENAD0/FROM_NTMFV2/", which were already in gLAB.
Updated/corrected several tooltips.
graph.py changed Removed text "PRN 0" in default ionosphere availability maps title when GEO PRN was 0 (PRN 0 means data was read from several GEOs).
input.c  added 'readIONEX' function can now read concatenated IONEX files.
changed Removed 'readIONEXFile' function because it is no longer used.
Removed 'readRinexNavFile' function because it is no longer used.
All input files are now opened "rb" options instead of just "r" (to avoid problems with Linux end of line in Windows).
fixed Fixed crash when reading RINEX precise clock files and there was a line entry of a station whose name started with 'G' or 'R' or 'E' or 'S' or 'C' or 'J' or 'I' and the remaining three letters of the station name where all numbers (for example 'AR S011 2008 05 12 00 10  0.000000  2    0.764667861953E-03'). This made gLAB believe that it was a satellite data entry instead of station data entry.
model.c fixed Fixed applying wrong ARP correction in reference station in DGNSS mode.
output.c added Added a INFO message with the list of SBAS GEO satellites excluded (for SPP, PPP, SBAS and DGNSS modes).
preprocessing.c changed Optimised function 'checkPseudorangeJumps'. If total value to be added to measurements is 0, gLAB will not loop throught the satellite measurements adding 0 to measurements. Also, prints distinguishing between reference station and rover now have the if as a parameter for the printf, instead of an external 'if' statement.

 

gLAB v5.1.2

New highlighted features:

  • Added multithread compatibility with OpenMP library. Multithread has to be enabled at compile time, and will be disabled by default. In Windows, the multithread enabled binary will be named "gLAB_Multithread.exe" (the user must explicitly call this binary or change its name to gLAB.exe to use with the GUI). In Linux and Mac, user will to rebuild the core with multithread enabled. There is a "multithread" folder inside the "source/Core" directory with the Makefile for easy compiling. The reason to leave multithread disabled by default is because it may interfere with some tutorials (due to printing order is changed) and because in SPP and DGNSS modes it may run slower.
    • In order to get noticeable improvements with multithread, it should be used with 1Hz or higher data files.
    • For SBAS maps, the improvement is quite big. Using 4 CPUs SBAS maps computation time is halved.
    • If multithread is enabled, a new parameter, '-numthreads' will be available for forcing the number of threads. If not set, by default it will use as much threads as CPUs available.

Modifications and bug fixes:

  • Added support for new DCB file header ('CODE'S 30-DAY GPS P1-C1 DCB SOLUTION, ENDING DAY 306, 2017')
  • Added check when reading DCB files. If header is not recognized, it will show an error instead of producing undefined behaviour.
  • Updated ANTEX and DCB files in the GUI (the URL had been moved).
  • Several bug fixes and improvements. See full list below.

Future updates:

  • Measurement selection for cycle-slip detection and in the processing.
  • Multiconstellation!!! 
Date File name Type Description
2018/01/10 gLAB.c added Added OpenMP preprocessor directives for multithread processing for the modelling section and for SBAS maps mode (gLAB needs to be rebuild with '-fopenmp' in order to enable multithreading).
Added parameter '-numthreads' in order to set the maximum number of threads in multithread processing. If this parameter is not set, it will use as many threads as available CPU (gLAB needs to be rebuild with '-fopenmp' in order to enable multithreading).
changed If gLAB is build with multithreading, the INFO message with the gLAB version will show that multithreading is enabled.
Changed progress bar in SBAS plots mode. Now it will also show the current epoch and epochs left in HH:MM:SS format.
Progress bar in SBAS plots mode will now appear with 0.0% progress when the process starts. Before it didn't appear until progress had advanced to 0.1%, which could take some long time and therefore make the user think that the gLAB was not working.
Updated help messages.
gLAB_GUI changed Changed ANTEX ftp link from "ftp://igscb.jpl.nasa.gov/igscb/station/general/pcv_archive/" to "ftp://ftp.igs.org/pub/station/general/pcv_archive/" (the URL of the link had moved).
Changed DCB ftp link from "ftp://ftp.unibe.ch/aiub/CODE" to "ftp://ftp.aiub.unibe.ch/CODE/ (the URL of the link had moved).
If P1-C1 correction is disabled or set to flexible in the MODELLING, it will now allow to leave the P1-C1 DCB file blank (previously it was only allowed to be empty if GPS Receiver Type was manually set to type 2).
Updated/corrected several tooltips.
fixed
Fixed parameter '-pre:setrectype' appearing in the INPUT section instead of the preprocess section when creating a configuration file.
Fixed parameter '-pre:setrectype' not appearing in configuration file when the GUI option "Generate minimum configuration" was disabled and this option had the default value (therefore it did not affect the processing).
input.c  changed
 
gLAB can now read DCB files with the new header format (for example: 'CODE'S 30-DAY GPS P1-C1 DCB SOLUTION, ENDING DAY 306, 2017').
If header format is not recognized when reading a DCB file, gLAB will show an error and exit instead of continuing and producing undefined behaviour (incorrect results or crashing).
output.c added Added a INFO message with number of threads used during the processing (gLAB needs to be rebuild with '-fopenmp' in order to enable multithreading).
preprocessing.c added Added a OpenMP preprocessor directive for multithread cycle-slip processing (gLAB needs to be rebuild with '-fopenmp' in order to enable multithreading).
changed 'checkCycleSlips' function now does not return any value (before it returned if the last satellite processed had had a cycle-slip, which was useless).

 

gLAB v5.1.1

New highlighted features:

  • Added "Add user error to RINEX". In this mode, gLAB reads an observation file, an user error file and creates a new RINEX observation with the same data with the user defined error added to measurements (in this version it can only add error to GPS, Galileo and SBAS constellations. Other constellations will be left unmodified).

Modifications and bug fixes:

  • Changed receiver ARP correction default option in SBAS and DGNSS. Now it will be enabled by default in SBAS and DGNSS modes (before it was disabled).
  • In DGNSS mode, ARP correction will now be applied to rover and reference station if ARP correction is enabled (reference station ARP correction will be read from RINEX or RTCM reference file).
  • Fixed KML timestamps not being written to file when observation file timestamps where inconsistent (for example 1.000304, 2.000304, ...).
  • Several bug fixes and improvements. See full list below.

Future updates:

  • Measurement selection for cycle-slip detection and in the processing.
  • Multiconstellation!!! 
Date File name Type Description
2017/12/22 gLAB.c added Added "Add User to RINEX" mode. In this mode, gLAB reads an observation file, an user added error file and writes the a RINEX observation file with the same data but with the user added error in the measurements.
changed Changed receiver ARP correction default option in SBAS and DGNSS. Now it will be enabled by default in SBAS and DGNSS modes (before it was disabled).
Changed detection method for detecting if standard output is piped. This method works in Windows, Linux and Mac. This allows gLAB to behave the same way in Linux and Mac when detecting if standard output is piped or if process is in background (in order to hide the progress bar). In Windows, it cannot detect if process is run in background, so if output is a pipe or is not a terminal by default it will hide the progress bar.
Updated help messages.
fixed Fixed DGNSS corrections not being updated during one epoch when a new header was found in the rover observation file (only when rover file is concatenated). This ocurred only in the first epoch after the new header.
gLAB_GUI added Added link to GPS Constellation Status file "http://www2.unb.ca/gge/Resources/GPSConstellationStatus.txt"
 Added "Add User to RINEX" mode. In this mode, gLAB reads an observation file, an user added error file and writes the a RINEX observation file with the same data but with the user added error in the measurements.
changed ARP correction is now enabled by default in SBAS and DGNSS modes.
"Satellite Options" groupbox in Preprocess tab will now keep all elements aligned to top (instead of centering them in height) when the "Discard Unhealthy Satellites (Brodcast only)" option is hidden.
Updated/corrected several tooltips.
input.c  changed gLAB can now read backwards RINEX observation files with multiple headers.
fixed Fixed rare bug when reading backwards a file searching for the start of an epoch (the line with the timestamp), some measurements with many 0's (for example 20010008.523) could make gLAB confuse a line with measurements with the line of start of epoch.
Fixed rare bug not showing progress with some observation files. It ocurred when searching for the start of an epoch (the line with the timestamp) for computing the number of epochs in file for computing the current progress.
model.c changed In DGNSS mode, receiver ARP correction was disabled independently of user options. If user now enables this option, reference station ARP will be read from reference RINEX or RTCM file and corrected, and rover ARP will be read from rover RINEX or user input (depending on user options).
output.c added Added function 'writeObsRinexEpochUserAddedError' for writing RINEX observation file with user added error.
fixed Fixed KML timestamps not being written to file when observation file timestamps where inconsistent (for example 1.000304, 2.000304, ...).
preprocessing.c fixed Fixed crash (due to division by zero) when observation file timestamps where inconsistent (for example 1.000304, 2.000304, ...), file interval was equal or greater than 1 second and user had set a decimate value smaller than 1.
Fixed crash (due to division by zero) when observation file timestamps where inconsistent (for example 1.000304, 2.000304, ...), file interval was smaller than 1 second and user had set a decimate value of an order of magnitude smaller (or more) than the file interval.

gLAB v5.1.0

Big update!! But it will be the last update in about a year (except if any critical bug appears) in order to focus in the Multiconstellation and measurement management feature.

New highlighted features:

  • Added Mac support!! The GUI layout is not as nice as in Windows and Linux, but has full functionality. The differences of the layout in the GUI in Mac are due to Qt libraries.
  • Added progress bar in the GUI for all modes (except Analysis mode). In command line, the current epoch and percentage completed is displayed. In command line, in Windows and Mac, the progress bar will automatically be disabled if output is redirected to file with the ">" symbol or output is piped. This is because in Windows and Mac it is not possible to differenciate between redirection and a pipe. In Linux, progress bar will only auto disable if output is piped.
  • Added abort button in the GUI.
  • Added the capability to read and write reference position files. Input reference files can be a columnar text file,a SP3 file or a RTKlib output file. gLAB can now read a reference position file, and compare the difference between gLAB solution and the reference position file automatically, showing the results in the differencial fields of the OUTPUT message (dXYZ, dNEU). Some example of the applications are: Compare gLAB solution with another software solution, or process in PPP mode and then compare PPP vs SPP. 
  • Added options to set "Start time" and "End time" to make gLAB only process a given range of epochs.
  • Added a "SBAS summary Start Time" in order to allow the user to set the first epoch of the SBAS summary.
  • Added a date converter (in the GUI and in command line). The date converter accepts these formats: calendar format, Year/DoY/SoD, GPSWeek/Sow and MJDN/SoD.
  • Added a coordinate converter (in the GUI and in command line). The coordinate converter accepts these systems: cartesian, geodetic (ellipsoidal) and spherical.
  • User input coordinates can now be also be given in geodetic (ellipsoidal) format.
  • SNR can also be read from S1, S2 measurements in the RINEX observation file (before only read the flag next to the measurement).

Modifications and bug fixes:

  • SNR filtering is now done before the cycle-slip detection and smoothing (in previous versions is was done after smoothing). If a sample is below the SNR threshold, the sample is discarded and counts towards data gap (this changes the results noticeably!).
  • Changed SBAS and DGNSS defaults for Data Gap, SNR and N-consecutive. In both modes, SNR mask is set to 33 dbHz, Data Gap to 10 seconds and N-consecutive is disabled (this changes the results noticeably!).
  • Improved SBAS messages data gap detection and processing. Now it will also print message with the number of message missing at each epoch (if there are any).
  • When converting RTCM files, gLAB will automatically replace files instead of asking of quitting.
  • Lots of bug fixes and improvements. See full list below.

Future updates:

  • Measurement selection for cycle-slip detection and in the processing.
  • Multiconstellation!!! 
Date File name Type Description

Added 'ConvertCartesianCoord', 'ConvertGeodeticCoord' and 'ConvertSphericalCoord' for coordinate conversion.
changed When 4 or more consecutive messages are wrong, UDREI data will timeout (for PA mode only) instead of erasing all fast correction data.
dataHandling.h added Added functions 'ConvertCalendarDate', 'ConvertDoYDate', 'ConvertGPSWeekDate' and 'ConvertMJDNDate' for date conversion.
Added 'ConvertCartesianCoord', 'ConvertGeodeticCoord' and 'ConvertSphericalCoord' for coordinate conversion.

filter.c fixed Fixed bug not computing Stanford-ESA when SBAS summary was not enabled.
gLAB.c added Added MAC support.
Added progress bar in command line. In Linux, it will automatically disable if process is started in the background or moved to background or standard output is piped or standard input is not a terminal. In Windows, it will automatically disabled if standard input or output is not a terminal (In Windows and Mac it is not possible to distinguish between output redirection to file or piped), but it is possible to force the appearance of the progress bar with the parameter '-print:progress'.
It can also be disabled by the user with parameter '--print:progress'.
Added '-pre:starttime' and '-pre:endtime' for setting first and last epoch to be processed of the observation file respectively. Four date formats supported: 'YYYYMMDD HH:MM:SS', 'YYYY/MM/DD HH:MM:SS', 'YYYY/DoY SoD' and 'GPSWeek SoW'.
Added hidden parameter '-pre:guiprogress'. This parameter is given by the GUI to the gLAB core in order to make the latter print the progress in a suitable format to be read by the GUI.
Added parameters '-dateconv:calendar', '-dateconv:doy', '-dateconv:gpsweek' and '-dateconv:mjdn' for date conversion mode.
Added parameters '-coordconv:cartesian', '-coordconv:geodetic' and 
'-coordconv:spherical' for coordinate conversion mode.
Added parameter '-sbassummary:starttime' to allow a user defined start time of the SBAS summary (if user also wants to set an end time, set the last epoch to be processed with parameter '-pre:endtime').
Added parameters '-output:sp3:dgnssonly' and '--output:sp3:dgnssonly' to enable or disable writing SPP solution to output SP3 file in DGNSS mode.

"GPSWeek/SoW" or "YYYY/MM/DD HH:MM:SS.zzz" formats respectively.
Added parameters '-output:refpos:geodetic' and '--output:refpos:geodetic' to set or unset to write the coordinates in geodetic system instead of cartesian mode.
Added parameters '-output:refpos:dgnssonly' and '--output:refpos:dgnssonly' to enable or disable writing SPP solution to output reference position file in DGNSS mode.
Added parameter '--print:none'. It has the same effect as '-print:none'.
Added parameter '-model:tropo'. It has the same effect as '-model:trop'.
Added 'SetRef', 'calculateRef', 'calculateRINEXRef', 'calculateUSERRef', 'DGNSSRoverUSERRef' and 'DGNSSUserRoverRef' receiver positioning modes. This modes are for using a reference file with the rover position.
Added 'DGNSSRoverUSERGeod', 'DGNSSUserRoverRefGeod', 'DGNSSUserGeodbaseline', 'DGNSSUserGeodRinexRover', 'DGNSSRefGeodRoverUSERGeod', 'DGNSSRefCarRoverUSERGeod'
and 'DGNSSRefGeodRoverUSERCar' receiver positioning modes for supporting geodetic coordinates. Internally, it will convert the coordinates to cartesian and switch to the equivalent cartesian mode.
Added compilation date and time next to the "gLAB version" line.
Added INFO message when SNR mask is disabled.
Added INFO message about KML Timestamp options.
Added INFO message for selected KML timestamp regions.
Added INFO message for selected inclusion and exclusion areas in SBAS plots mode.
Added INFO message with user defined geodetic coordinates (when provided).
changed
Changed SBAS and DGNSS defaults for Data Gap, SNR and N-consecutive. In both modes, SNR mask is set to 33 dbHz, Data Gap to 10 seconds and N-consecutive is disabled.
Changed parameters name from 'RTCMbaseline', 'RTCMRinexRover', 'RTCMRoverUSER', 'RTCMUserbaseline', 'RTCMUserRinexRover' and 'RTCMRefRoverUSER' to 'DGNSSbaseline', 'DGNSSRinexRover', 'DGNSSRoverUSER', 'DGNSSUserbaseline', 'DGNSSUserRinexRover'
and 'DGNSSRefRoverUSER' respectively. The old names can still be used in order to maintain compatibility with older versions.
Changed default standard deviation from 1 to 5 metres for single frequency code, from 1 to 3 metres for PC and from 0.01 to 0.03 metres for LC.
If troposphere model is disabled, gLAB will automatically disable computation of wet troposhere residual in the filter.
In RTCM conversion mode, gLAB will automatically replace output files instead of exiting.
Improved gLAB detection of executable directory detection for Mac compatibility.
If receiver antenna phase center is set by user, then receiver antenna phase center variation correction will be automatically disabled (previously it appeared as enabled in the INFO messages, but during the modelled it was skipped).
In orbit comparison or orbit show mode, gLAB will not always show the end time of the comparison regardless of the number of concatenations of the input files (previously it was not shown if file had more than three days concatenated).
Tweaked the code to remove the different compiler warnings when compiling with flags '-pedantic', '-Wall' and '-std=gnu99' (without using the '-O' flag). In each platform, the compiler issued different warnings.
Updated help messages.
fixed
Fixed bug that made gLAB discard all satellites with reason "Arc too short" even though the arc was very large.
Fixed crash in SBAS plot mode when hourly maps were enabled and continuity risk maps were disabled.
Fixed bug incorrectly reading values for parameter '-output:kml:tstamprange' when it was provided through a configuration file.
Fixed bug that made the KML time ranges to be duplicated or triplicated in memory due to user options are read several times.
Fixed bug that made inclusion and exclusion areas for SBAS maps to be duplicated or triplicated in memory due to user options are read several times (in order to override defaults) This will slightly reduce SBAS maps computation time with maps including inclusion or exclusion areas.
Fixed solution not converging in receiver positioning modes 'calculateRINEX' and 'calculateUser' when the initial position was very far from the real position. This was due to gLAB believed initial coordinates were always close to the real ones, therefore, satellite elevation filtering was enabled since the beginning instead of waiting for the solution to converge for enabling this filter.
Fixed bug not computing Stanford-ESA when SBAS summary was not enabled.
gLAB_GUI added Added Mac compatibility.
Added links "ftp://lox.ucsd.edu/pub/rinex/" and "ftp://ftp.gfz-potsdam.de/GNSS".
Added "UNAVCO'S Database RINEX Searcher" in the "Download data files" menu.
Added "GFZRNX RINEX version converter" in the "File conversion tools" menu.
Added progress bar when gLAB processing is launched (for all modes except Analysis).
Added abort button when gLAB processing is launched (in all modes).
Added "Start Time" and "End Time" options in the INPUT section.
Added "Set start time of SBAS summary" option in the "SBAS Summary Options" groupbox.
Added used MOPS in the SBAS options.
Added options for allowing the user to enter user defined coordinates in Geodetic system.
Added a new input for reference position file in "A Priori Receiver Position From".
Added output reference file in the "Output" tab.
Added contextual menu to all input files for opening them with a text editor. In Windows, input files are opened with WordPad due to this program supports Linux end of file format.
Added Date and coordinate converter in the Help menu.
Added "File Standards" in the Help menu with links to several GNSS file standards.
Added "Reference Position File Manual" in the "User manuals" section.
Added option 'Write only DGNSS solutions' in output SP3 files in DGNSS mode.
changed In the "Condition" combo box with the output message list (in the Analysis mode), now each item has the tooltip of its correspondent message.
Tooltip for OUTPUT message has been adjusted to fit in typical laptop screen (without modifying the content).
All date boxes in the GUI now have a button to display a calendar for date selection.
SNR deselection is now named "SNR Mask", and allows to set a user defined threshold.
Changed SBAS and DGNSS defaults for Data Gap, SNR and N-consecutive. In both modes, SNR mask is set to 33 dbHz, Data Gap to 10 seconds and N-consecutive is disabled.
Changed default standard deviation from 1 to 5 metres for single frequency code, from 1 to 3 metres for PC and from 0.01 to 0.03 metres for LC.
Changed option name from 'Calculate - Specify' to 'Calculate - User defined'.
Option "Estimate wet troposhere residual" in filter will automatically disable if troposphere model is disabled.
In RTCM conversion mode, gLAB will automatically replace output files instead of asking.
When opening a user manual, gLAB will overwrite any previous manual instead of using the old version (if it existed).
Size of "A Priori Receiver Position From" has been fixed in order to avoid resizing when changing between options.
The template "Orbit and Clock Comparison" will now set the "Source File" path to the processing mode output file path (plus "diff.out" filename) instead of the application directory when the comparison mode output file is empty.
Updated/corrected several tooltips.
fixed Fixed bug that showed an error of "GPS Receiver Type file" not found when user had selected "GPS Receiver Manual Selection".
Fixed bug that showed a wrong error regarding to P1-P2 DCB correction selection.
Fixed bug showing an error message twice when gLAB ended with an error and no data was written to the output file.
Fixed bug passing wrong parameters to gLAB core when receiver antenna phase center correction was set to "Specify Offset".
Fixed bug when loading cycle-slip detectors options from configuration file.
Fixed bug reading configuration files when options had more than one space between them or line started with a space.
graph.py changed In Mac and Linux, if the ".plot.lock" cannot be created in the current directory, then this file will be created in the home directory. This is to make graph work in Mac when gLAB is opened by double clicking in the gLAB logo after opening the ".dmg" file (i.e. without installing gLAB). In this case, gLAB files were mounted on a read-only filesystem.
Changed title name in Stanford-ESA plots from '# samples' to '# geometries'.
Disabled warning deprecated messages in windows and Mac.
Removed the "Qt: Untested Windows version 6.2 detected!" warning message in Windows 10 from the Qt4 library used by python.
fixed Fixed watermark being printed over the colorbarlabels in SBAS plots mode.
Fixed error in Stanford plots mode which made the image title get erased
when the user provided a title which had a newline in the middle of the text.
input.c  added Added functions 'readReferenceFile' and 'readPosFile' for reading a reference position file.
changed User defined error files and sigma multipath error files now also accept
commas (',') and semicolons (';') as column separators.
In function 'readRinexObsHeader', gLAB will now estimate the file interval
(if it is not in the header) by substracting the second epoch minus the
first epoch. This will be used for computing the total number of epochs
for the progress bar and for having a rough interval value in the first
epoch.
When reading the observation header for the first time, gLAB will now estimate the file interval, so file interval is available for the decimation funtion in the first epoch.
Detection of consecutive missing messages or consecutive is now done for all GEO available in the SBAS file, even if they are not used.
An INFO message is printed when a missing or wrong messages is detected for any GEO. If consecutive missing or wrong messages are detected, the number of consecutive missing or wrong messages will be printed.
SNR can now also be read from S1, S2,... measurements instead of just the flag next to the measurements. If both measurements are available, gLAB will prefer the S1,S2... measurements (the non quantizied values).
fixed Fixed crash when reading non standard RINEX-B files which do not contain
the any of these fields in every first line of data: frequency, datalength,
receiverindex and source identifier.
Fixed getLback function (backwards line reading) not working when a RINEX-3 observation line was very long.
input.h added Added functions 'readReferenceFile' and 'readPosFile' for reading a reference position file.
model.c added Added functions for 'XYZ2Spherical' and 'Spherical2XYZ' for coordinate conversion.
changed Taken out broadcast message age check in DGNSS. This made sometimes to incorrectly discard navigation messages (and therefore, the satellite).
If GEO switching is enabled, gLAB will make a GEO switch if the current GEO has 4 consecutive messages missing or 4 consecutive wrong messages (in both PA and NPA modes).
During a GEO switch, gLAB will not switch to a GEO which has 4 or more
consecutive messages missing.
In NPA mode, if half of the satellites do not have fast or slow corrections,
gLAB will try to switch GEO if GEO switching is enabled.
When gLAB switches back to previous GEO (option '-model:geofallback' enabled), the INFO message showing the change of GEO will be printed after the OUTPUT or SBASOUT message, instead of before, to avoid user confusion.
fixed Fixed infinite loop when minimum switch time for SBAS was set to 0.
Fixed incorrect computation of BeiDou satellite coordinates and clocks with
broadcast products.
model.h added
Added functions for 'XYZ2Spherical' and 'Spherical2XYZ' for coordinate conversion.
output.c added Added INFO messages with the KML ranges selected.
Added 'printDates' and 'printCoordinates' functions for printing the results
of date or coordinates conversion (for conversion mode only).
Added 'writeReffile' function for writing a reference position file.
changed Data Gap INFO message will now appear as OFF when all cycle-slip detectors are disabled instead of showing the data gap size (this correspons to the internal logical of gLAB).
Changed N-consecutive INFO message from "INFO PREPROCESSING Cycle-slip N-Con:" to "INFO PREPROCESSING N-consecutive:", as the N-consecutive function is a blind measurement filter, not a cycle-slip detector.
In DGNSS mode, epochs in SPP will be shown in red in the output KML instead of being empty.
In SBAS mode, epochs in NPA will be shown in red in the output KML instead of being empty.
SBASUNSEL message will now print the number of missing or wrong
consecutive messages instead of always writing "4 or more consecutive...".
fixed Fixed problem with carriage returns when writing SBAS converted files and
SBAS conversion log when sbas source file has a different line ending
than the current operative system.
Fixed bug that applied a wrong DCB when printing P1 and P2 GPS measurements in MEAS message when receiver was set to type 1 or type 2.
Fixed bug in MEAS message that made to apply wrong DCBs to GPS P1 measurements when DCB P1-C1 was set to strict.
Fixed bug with wrong decimation in KML timestamps due to an integer overflow. This bug was introduced in version 4.2.0 when decimal decimation was added.
output.h added
Added 'printDates' and 'printCoordinates' functions for printing the results
of date or coordinates conversion (for conversion mode only).
Added 'writeReffile' function for writing a reference position file.
preprocessing.c changed SNR is now checked in the cycle-slip detector function. If a satellite does not have the minimum SNR, the sample is discarded and counts as a data gap.
During the computation of the file interval ('look4interval' function), in the first epoch it will set the rough estimation of the interval (second epoch minus the first one). This ensures that first epoch is not wrongly decimated due to missing file interval.
fixed Fixed data gap cycle-slip detector not triggering when L1-C1 cycle slip detector had detected an unconsistency in measurements.
Fixed wrong decimation for observation files with interval below 1Hz and inconsistent timestamps (for example, a file with 0.2 second interval and timestamps such as 1.203, 1.204, etc). For decimation on these files, gLAB will now only take into account as much decimals as the file interval (for example, a file with 0.2 second interval will only take into consideration the first decimal of the timestamp).

 

gLAB v5.0.0

New highlighted features:

  • New GUI!!!! The new GUI has been built from scratch using Qt 5. 
    The GUI is compatible with windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 and 10 (both 32 and 64 bit versions) and with Ubuntu 10.04 and above (both 32 and 64 bit versions). Other Linux distributions should work, although it has not been tested.
    It includes all the new features for gLAB except for the SBAS maps (both processing and plotting) and the world maps and worst integrity ratio plots. 
  • SBAS Availabilty maps:
    • gLAB can now do worldwide SBAS Availabilty Maps, plotting availability for all SBAS providers in a world map within a single run (see plot example in the SBAS manual) 
    • SBAS Availability maps can now also be written each hour, therefore the user can make a plot for the availability for each hour of the day
    • Added options for giving inclusion and exclusion areas in the processing. For worldwide SBAS maps, creating exclusion areas where there are no SBAS coverage can save a lot of computation time.
    • Several improvements in the plotting tool for the SBAS. The colourbar now has the same size has the plot, the user can set label for the colourbar and X and Y axes and also manually set the ticks.
  • In Windows, the installator has now the gLAB core compiled in both 32 and 64 bit, and it will automatically deploy only the version matching the user's Windows installed architecture.
  • Added outlier detection in Melbourne-WÜbbena cycle-slip detector.
  • Added a field with the number of satellites used in the OUTPUT message.
  • Added a field with the SNR value of the satellite at the end of the MODEL message.
  • Added the troposphere wet mapping and arc number at the end of the FILTER message.

Modifications and bug fixes:

  • Fixed side effect from the new decimation mode (the new mode was done to allow decimation under 1 second) that made gLAB skip epochs when the RINEX observation file was at a data rate of 1 second (or above), but the timestamps had decimals instead of being integer seconds.
  • Fixed several bug with the processing with mixed GEO data.
  • Several changes and bug fixed (see details in the table below).

Future updates:

  • Measurement selection for cycle-slip detection and in the processing.
  • Multiconstellation!!!

gLAB.c added Added parameter '-pre:cs:l1c1:unconcheck:th' for L1C1 consistency check threshold.
Added GEO switching in SBAS Availability maps (therefore, now it can do SBAS availability maps with different SBAS providers in the same run).
Added parameter '-sbasplots:hourlymaps' for writing hourly SBAS availability maps.
Added parameter '-sbasplots:plotarea'. This parameter is a shorter way to provide the same values as in '-sbasplots:minlon' '-sbasplots:maxlon', '-sbasplots:minlat' and '-sbasplots:maxlat' parameters.
Added parameter '-sbasplots:exclusionarea' for excluding areas in the SBAS availability maps processing. 
This parameter can be passed as many times as exclusion areas needed to be defined.
This parameter will exclude all points which are inside any area defined with this parameter.
Added parameter '-sbasplots:inclusionarea' for including areas in the SBAS availability maps processing.
This parameter can be passed as many times as exclusion areas needed to be defined.
This parameter will exclude all coordinates that are not inside any area defined with this parameter.
If parameter '-sbasplots:exclusionarea' is also provided, for a coordinate to be processed, it must be inside any inclusion area and outside of all exclusion areas.
Added parameter '-rtcmv2conversioninfo', which shows detailed info of the output files generated when converting a RTCM v2.x file.
Added parameter '-pre:cs:bw:siginit' for setting the initial sigma in the Melbourne-Wubbenna cycle-slip detector.
changed
Changed parameter name from '-model:geoadqtime' to '-model:geoacqtime' (but the old name is  still accepted).
Help parameters ('-help', '-examples', '-config', '-messages',  '-usererrorfile', '-sigmamultipathfile' and '-rtcmv2conversioninfo') now also work with a double slash '--'.
Updated help messages.
gLAB_GUI.py Defunct (obsolete) This file has been replaced by the source code in the new GUI, which is splitted in several files (see the source->GUI for the source files of the new GUI).
graph.py added Added two new modes for setting ticks in the plots:
With parameters '--XticksStep' and '--YticksStep', the ticks are set at the rate given by the user.
With parameters '--XticksList' and '--YticksList', the user set the ticks by giving a list of ticks.
Added options '--percentileX' and '--percentileY' in Stanford Plots mode for setting ticks when the 68%, 95% and 99.9% of the values are reached in each axe.
Added option '--CbarLabel' in SBAS Availability map plots for setting a label next to the colorbar.
Added option '--NoCbarPercent' in SBAS Availability map plots for not printing the '%' on top of the colorbar.

fixed Fixed a bug when reading a EMS file in SBAS Availability plots mode that made gLAB show an error message saying that there were no GEO available for processing.
model.c changed Improved GEO switching when there are many SBAS GEO available. Now gLAB will skip all previously used SBAS GEOs when doing multiple switches in the same epoch (for example, when doing SBAS availability maps with several SBAS providers).
fixed Fixed bug that made not to unselect GPS satellites when data from mixed GEOs was used and alarms from more than one GEO had been received.
Fixed bug that prevented from changing GEO when an alarm was received and data from multiple GEOs were used.
Fixed incorrect GEO PRN number printed in INFO message stating that the GEO had changed when the initial GEO was the one with mixed data.
output.c added Added INFO print for L1C1 consistency check.
Added SNR field at the end of the MODEL message. gLAB will search first for the "S" measurement in the observation file.
If it is not present, it will search for the SNR flag in the current measurement. 
If no SNR is available, 999 will be printed in this field.
Added troposhere wet mapping and arc number at the end of the PREFIT message.
Added number of satellites used in the solution computation in the penultimate field of the OUTPUT message.
preprocessing.c added Added outlier detection in Melbourne-Wubbena cycle-slip detector.
changed In RINEX observation files with a data rate equal or higher than 1 second, when checking if an epoch has to be decimated, gLAB will not take into account the decimals in the timestamp in order to avoid wrong decimation of epochs with decimals (for example, a file with 1.01, 2.01, etc. timestamps).
fixed Fixed bug in the computation of the Melbourne-Wubbena sigma.
 

gLAB v4.2.0

New highlighted features:

  • Added 'Maritime' mode for SBAS (command line only). At the current moment, its effect is to disable messages type 10 (degradation terms), 27 and 28 (δUDRE) in both PA and NPA modes. This may change in the future.
  • Added option that allows to choose whether to add or not the reference station(s) used in DGNSS processing in the generated KML file.
  • Decimation can now be a decimal number with a maximum resolution of 0.0001 seconds (10000 Hz).
  • Added field "Vertical positioning error" in SBASOUT message. This field is the absolute value of the north error. With this field it is easier to do VPE/VPL plots.
  • gLAB is now able to create directories recursively for the output files.
  • Added warning message when computing SBAS availability maps in order to advise user for the long computation time needed (with default options it is around 2 hours).
  • Added documentation for SBAS output conversion log in the SBAS manual (it was missing).

Modifications and bug fixes:

  • Fixed all bugs produced by the N-consecutive filter.
  • Fixed several bugs with SBAS processing (see details in the table below).

Future updates:

  • The new GUI is almost finished!
 
Date File name Type Description
2017/05/22 dataHandling.c added Added function 'mkdir_recursive' for creating directories recursively.
changed Changed default SNR threshold from 35dbHz to 30dbHz.
filter.c added Added SATSEL message 'Satellite phase center corrections unavailable'.
changed Changed SATSEL message from 'Steady-state operation not reached. X epochs passed, still Y epochs to go' to 'Steady-state operation not reached. X epochs passed, still Y epochs to achieve X+Y'.
gLAB.c added Added option '-output:kml:refsta' for adding (or not) the reference station(s) used in DGNSS mode in the output KML files (default on).
Added options '-model:nomt10' and '-model:nomt2728' to disable messages type 10, 27 and 28 for SBAS.
Added option '-model:sbasmaritime' for SBAS maritime mode (which is a shortcut for providing parameters '-model:nomt10' and '-model:nomt2728'.
Added warning message when computing SBAS availability maps in order to advise user for the long computation time needed (with default options it is around 2 hours).
Added warning message when computing SBAS availability maps in order to advise user for the long computation time needed (with default options it is around 2 hours).
Added check of initial coordinates when receiver positioning is set to 'calculateRINEX' or 'calculateUSER'. If coordinates are (0,0,0), in the case of 'calculateRINEX' a warning will be shown informing that these coordinates are invalid and that (6378137,0,0) will be used instead. In the case of 'calculateUSER', an error will be shown.
changed gLAB will now create all directories recursively (if needed) when opening an output file for writing.
Decimation can be now a decimal number, with a maximum resolution of 0.0001 seconds (10000 Hz).
Use of Klobuchar iono when SBAS iono is not available during the solution convergence is now also permitted in receiver position modes 'calculateRINEX' or 'calculateUSER'.
Updated help messages.
fixed Fixed crash when SBAS iono was selected, Klobuchar iono was allowed during receiver convergence and no navigation or Klobuchar file had been provided.
graph.py added Added unicode text transformation in WaterMark text input when running under Python 2.
changed Changed default title of SBAS iono map from 'SBAS Iono Correction Map' to 'SBAS Iono Correction Availability Map'.
input.c  changed RTCM3 epoch read from binary file is now rouded up to 4th decimal (minimum decimation of gLAB). Differences at the 11th decimal were making to discard all reference measurements if N-consecutive filter was enabled.
fixed Fixed a bug that made sometimes gLAB crash when an invalid message was read.
model.c changed SBAS processing now supports disabling message type 10 in PA mode.
If SBAS iono is used but SBAS processing is not enabled, gLAB will allow to use Klobuchar during the solution convergence if the receiver position is set to 'calculate', 'calculateRINEX' or 'calculateUSER'.
Changed behaviour of SBAS processing when 4 conescutive messages were incorrect. Instead of setting all satellites to "Do not use", now it will only change the current GEO to "Do not use" only for ranging purposes.
fixed Fixed a bug handling SBAS alarm messages when two GEO are under alarm. This made sometimes to discard satellites due to an alarm message even if the alarm was from GEO not in use.
Fixed bug that made to print "Ephemerides unavailable" in the SATSEL message when the condition to unselect a satellite was met before reaching the function where ephemerides were checked.
output.c added Added field "Vertical positioning error" in SBASOUT message. This field is the absolute value of the north error. With this field it is easier to do VPE/VPL plots.
changed If current GEO is under alarm and there are other GEO also under alarm, the remaining alarm in the SBASUNSEL will be of the selected GEO, instead of the last GEO under alarm processed.
When an incorrect message is read, now it will be written to RINEX-B or EMS file (before it was not written), due to the effect of reading an incorrect message or not reading any message is not equivalent.
preprocessing.c fixed Fixed arclength not increasing when N-consecutive filter was enabled, no cycle-slip detectors were active and data rate of the observation file was 15 seconds or lower.
Fixed data rate interval of RTCM3 file not being computed. This made discard all reference station measurements if N-consecutive filter was enabled.

 

gLAB v4.1.0

New highlighted features:

  • Added N-consecutive check in cycle-slip detectors. This forces N consecutive samples of a satellite before it can be used. This check only applies to files with sampling rate below 15 seconds (data rate is detected automatically). It is a very simple yet very effective way to discard outliers in RINEX measurements (command line only).
  • Added function for prefit outlier detection. It computes the prefit median and discards satellites which have the difference between the prefit median and its prefit higher than a configurable threshold. By default it is disabled, as it may interfere with the gLAB tutorials (see gLAB command line help for a full description of the method for detecting prefit outliers)
  • Added 'RTCMRinexRover', 'RTCMUSER', 'RTCMUserbaseline', 'RTCMUserRinexRover' and 'RTCMRefRoverUSER' receiver position modes. This modes allows the user to manually set the reference station coordinates (only when reference station data is from a RINEX file) or to set a user location for computing the error.

Modifications and bug fixes:

  • If user forces NPA mode in SBAS, now SBAS summary statistics for NPA will be computed, instead of just showing zero values.
  • The last line of the SBAS summary now has new columns for MIs in Stanford-ESA (even if Stanford-ESA is not enabled).
  • Fixed reference station time synchronization bug when the Rover had a data rate of 1 second and its timestamps were not integer seconds.
  • Bug fixes and other small improvements, see full list in table below.

Future updates:

  • A new GUI written from scratch is under construction! The new GUI is written in Qt, and it will include the new features of gLAB. Therefore, the current GUI will only have bugs fixed, but not updated.
Date File name Type Description
2017/04/07 filter.c added Added functions PrefitOutlierDetectorMedian and PrefitOutlierDetectorAbsolute for prefit outlier detection.
gLAB.c added Added parameter '-filter:prefitoutliers:median 'for prefit outlier detector by computing the difference from the median of the prefits.
Added parameter '-filter:prefitoutliers:abs 'for prefit outlier detector by computing the difference from the absolute values of the prefits.

Added 'RTCMRinexRover', 'RTCMUSER', 'RTCMUserbaseline', 'RTCMUserRinexRover' and 'RTCMRefRoverUSER' receiver position modes.

'RTCMRinexRover' is for computing the solution error with respect to the coordinates from Rover RINEX file.

'RTCMUSER' is for computing the solution error with respect to the user defined coordinates.

'RTCMUserbaseline', 'RTCMUserRinexRover' and 'RTCMRefRoverUSER' are equivalent to 'RTCMbaseline', 'RTCMRinexRover' and 'RTCMUSER' but reference station coordinates are user defined. These last three modes only work when reference station data is from a RINEX file.

Added check for valid receiver position user setting. In SPP/PPP/SBAS it will show an error instead of continuing in 'calculate' mode, and in DGNSS it will show an error instead of continuing in SPP mode.
changed When comparing orbits with two SP3 or SP3+CLK files, gLAB will compute the max data gap for each precise product file instead of using the value computed from the first precise product file read in both files.
If user forced NPA processing mode in parameters, gLAB will now enter the function to update values for SBAS summary, but all the values will be referred to NPA solution instead of PA.
Updated help messages with new parameters and info about prefit outlier detection.
fixed Fixed bug where sometimes gLAB would crash or show an incorrect error message (depending if it were  in comparison or navigation mode) when an invalid RTCM file was given.
gLAB_GUI.py added Added field 32 to OUTPUT message tooltip.
graph.py added Added option to set user defined ticks (for both X and Y) in standard plots.
Added option to adjust figure to margin, so there is the minimum white space margin left. This option applies to all modes except for world maps or integrity ratio maps.
fixed Fixed all errors when executing graph.py with python3.
input.c  fixed Fixed rare bug that made gLAB crash when handling end of file with SBAS files. It ocurred sometimes when the SBAS data file ended before the observation file.
Fixed incorrect SBAS message time handling when the RINEX-B file did not have the 0.1 second (signal travel time) in the timestamp. This made gLAB use SBAS messages from the future.
Fixed false detection of missing SBAS messages when reading SBAS files with more than one GEO.
output.c added Added INFO line for prefit outlier detectors.
Added INFO line for N-consecutive check.
Added fields to last line of SBAS summary for Stanford-ESA values (this fields will appear even if Stanford-ESA has not been enabled).
Added line "Total epochs processed with NPA solution" in SBAS summary. It will only appear if mode switching has been enabled.
changed Fields 'MIs', 'Hor_MIs' and 'Ver_MIs' in SBAS summary now will always show the MIs for all in view satellites combination, as there are now new fields for Stanford-ESA MIs values.
Changed measurement name in converted RINEX files from RTCM v3 from 'C1W', 'L1W', 'S1W', 'C2W', 'L2W', 'S2W' to 'C1P', 'L1P', 'S1P', 'C2P', 'L2P', 'S2P' respectively.
If user forced NPA processing mode in parameters, all values in SBAS summary will be referred to NPA.
fixed Fixed incorrect year formatting in writing a EMS file when SBAS messages were read from a RINEX-B file.
preprocessing.c added Added function look4interval to compute the file sampling rate.
Added N-consecutive check in cycle-slip detectors. This forces N consecutive samples of a satellite before it can be used. This check only applies to files with sampling rate below 15 seconds (data rate is detected automatically). It is a very simple yet very effective way to discard outliers in RINEX measurements.
fixed Fixed bug in function checkPseudorangeJumps which was mixing Rover measurements with reference station measurements in DGNSS mode, thus detecting false code/carrier phase inconsistencies.

 

 

gLAB v4.0.0

New highlighted features:

  • Added DGNSS processing with code  (command line only).
  • Added DGNSS binary RTCM v2 and v3 binaries conversion to text and RINEX file respectively (command line only).
  • Added SBAS availability maps (command line only). gLAB computes and plots three maps: SBAS Corrections availability, SBAS Ionosphere availability and SBAS Continuity Risk. This plots take around two hours to compute with the default options.
  • Added SBAS summary. It is printed automatically at the end of the output file if INFO messages are enabled and the receiver station is fixed).
  • Added option to not include the last two hours from previous day in the SBAS summary in order to avoid convergence time (command line only).
  • Added generation of KML files. Optionally, timestamps can be written to files. Timestamps can be decimated or only written in user defined regions in order to avoid making the file too big due to timestamps. NOTE: KML generated in DGNSS mode will also mark all reference stations used and also the epoch where the reference station changes -only if there is a change in the reference station- (command line only). 
  • Added generation of SP3 files using the solution coordinates (command line only).
  • If there are concatenated SP3 and CLK files, gLAB will read three days from these file, and will keep reading having three days in memories. These avoid the Runge-Kutta effect when interpolating orbits. This applies for navigation and orbit comparison modes.
  • Comparsion of a non concatenated file and a concatenated file can be done now. For example, comparing two SP3 files, being only one concatenated) will show the Runge-Kutta effect in the computed difference.
  • Added a configurable DOP (Dilution of Precision) threshold. If the current epoch is over threshold, gLAB wil switch to another navigation mode or skip the epoch (command line only).
  • Added option to set a maximum number of gaps in orbit and clock samples when interpolating precise orbits or clocks. This avoid using samples too much separated in time due to data gaps in the SP3/CLK files (command line only).
  • Added an INFO message when the solution cannot be computed. The message explaining the reason why the solution could not be computed.
  • Added option to write to a separate file the data from samples in Stanford-ESA computation. A integrity ratio threshold can be set (for both vertical and horizontal), so only samples above any of these thresholds will be written to file (command line only).
  • INPUT message will now print P1 and P2 with P1-C1 DCBs applied (if P1-C1 file and GPS Receiver type file are given, DCBs treatment is set to strict and it is necessary to apply this DCBs).
  • Windows compiled gLAB executable is now optimized (built with '-O3' gcc option) and has the gAGE icon embedded.

Modifications and bug fixes:

  • Rewritten the handling of concatenated SP3 and CLK. After reading the data, gLAB will internally clean all data gaps and invalid values. It is also much faster, as it does this opration after reading from an SP3/CLK file, instead of every time an interpolation is done.
  • IONEX files without 'END OF FILE' now only produces an warning message, instead of giving an error and exiting.
  • IONEX/SP3 files with wrong number of entries in the header will make gLAB show an error message and exit. This is to avoid crashes or undefined behaviour as in previous versions.
  • When executing gLAB in command line, if number of epochs for smoothing were set but not the measurement to smooth with (or viceversa), gLAB will show an error message and exit instead of silently continuing without smoothing.
  • LLI cycle-slip detector will now not trigger if there is data gap.
  • All input options are now case insensitive.
  • A lot of bug fixes and other small improvements, see full list in table below.

Future updates:

  • A new GUI written from scratch is under construction! The new GUI is written in Qt, and it will include the new features of gLAB. Therefore, the current GUI will only have bugs fixed, but not updated.
Date File name Type Description
2017/03/03 dataHandling.c added Added functions to initialise the RTCM structures.
Added functions to initialise SBASplots structures.
Added function date2doy.
Added function doy2date.
Added function SolutionModeNum2SolutionModeChar.
Added ConcatenateSP3 function.
Added comparison functions for qsort function.
changed When searching a station in the SINEX file, it will only use the first four letters of the marker name in the RINEX observation file instead of the complete name.
fixed Fixed initialization of tropMapping variable (it was intialized to 'SimpleMominal' instead of SimpleMapping') in initOptions function (it didn't affect the code as both have the same integer value).
Fixed incorrect memcpy call in t2tm function.
dataHandling.h added Added DGNSS structure.
Added several structures for RTCM converter.
Added several options for DGNSS.
Added functions to initialise the RTCM structures.
Added functions to initialise SBASplots structures.
Added function date2doy.
Added function doy2date.
Added function SolutionModeNum2SolutionModeChar.
Added parameters for SBAS summary.
Added ConcatenateSP3 function.
Added comparison functions for qsort function.
changed Changed constant name MAX_SATELLITES_IN_VIEW to MAX_SATELLITES_VIEWED.
Changed constant name c to c0. Single letter constants made compilation fail in Windows.
fixed Fixed p1p2dcbModel variable definition in TTGDdata structure. It was defined as 'enum P1C1DCBModel' when the correct type is 'enum P1P2DCBModel' (it didn't affect the code as all enum types behave as integer values when compiled).
filter.c added Added DGNSS checks within function fillUsableSatellites.
Added an INFO message when a solution could not be computed due to lack of available satellites.
Added an INFO message when a solution could not be computed due to geometry matrix is singular.
Added an INFO message when a solution could not be computed due to GDOP is over the threshold.
Stanford-ESA computation now writes to files all combinations that produce an integrity ratio higher than a threshold.
Added a quantization check to avoid the generation of false MIs in Stanford-ESA output file. This ocurred due to the process of quantizing (for saving the data in memory) and de-quantizing (for writing data in output file). This tipically ocurred when protection level and error values had very similar values.
changed Compution of DOP is now done before entering the computeSolution function, and checks if geometry matrix is singular. This allows to skip the epoch due to singular matrix or bad GDOP without affecting the filter.
INFO message in StdESA of a singular matrix now prints epoch and the list of satellites.
INFO message in step detector now prints current epoch and threshold.
Stanford-ESA computation can be done now outside of SBAS mode.
fixed Fixed a bug which made the filter reset some of the satellite carrier ambiguitys at each epoch. This ocurred when the observation file was multiconstellation and affected only the GPS satellites that were at the end of the list of satellites available.
Fixed a bug when checking if SBAS mode or GEO switch should be tried in Kalman function that provoked an infinite loop of tries to change mode or GEO.
gLAB.c added Added DGNSS processing.
Added DGNSS converter.
Added SBAS plots mode.
Added computation of SBAS summary when navigating with SBAS corrections, INFO message is active and receiver position is fixed.
Added option to start computing SBAS summary and Stanford-ESA values at the beginning of the next day.
Added option to generate a KML file from the output.
Added option to generate a KML file from the output with height 0 (KML with the ground projection).
Added options for adding timestamps in KML file. The timestamps can be decimated and also write at certain time regions (defined by the user).
Added options to generate a SP3 file from the output.
Added check for smoothing options. If number of smoothing options is given but not the carrier phase measurement to smooth with (or viceversa), it will show an error instead of continuing without any smoothing.
Added option to disable check for pseudorange jumps.
Added options for Stanford-ESA LOI (Loss of Integrity) data file (for its filename and the thresholds).
Added parameter '-model:maintaingeo' for SBAS GEO switching.
Added options for setting to zero SBAS corrections, sigmas and degradation terms.
Added check for number of entries in SP3 header. If it is incorrect, it will print an error instead of crashing or showing incorrect values.
Added check for number of entries in IONEX header. If it is incorrect, it will print an error instead of crashing or showing incorrect values.
Added option to skip epoch or change processing mode when GDOP is over a given threshold.
Added check for the number of measurements entered for the filter, to ensure they are not greater than the maximum.
Added check for options '-input:sp3', '-input:orb' and '-input:clk'. When 'input:sp3' parameter is given along with 'input:orb' or '-input:clk', it will show an ERROR message instead of just using the sp3 file for orbits and clocks.
Added options for maximum data gap check between samples when using precise orbits and clocks.
Added option to allow adding the user defined error after the preprocessing.
changed When a SINEX file is given, the receiver position will automatically switch to SINEX mode (no need to put the '-pre:setrecpos SINEX' parameter like in previous versions).
When a ionosphere file is given (with '-input:klb' or '-input:bds' or '-input:neq' or '-input:inx' or '-input:fppp' or '-input:sbasiono' it will automatically use the corresponding ionosphere model (no need to put the 'model:iono' parameter as in previous versions).
Show products and compare orbit mode have been greatly improved. Now it is possible show or compare concatenated products files, and
also to compare a concatenated file with a non concatenated file for a single day (this is useful to see the Runge interpolation effect with precise orbits).
In navigation, show or compare orbits modes, if there is a SP3 concatenated file, gLAB will always try to have in memory orbits and clocks from the three days (the previous day, the current day and the following day) in order to avoid Runge interpolation effect.
Changed extension of generated Stanford-ESA files. Now by default they will have a ".txt" extension.
Changed inital aproxPositionError for SINEX coordinates from 1 decimeter to 1 centimeter.
When IONEX or F-PPP DCB source is selected, if no dcb file is given, it will use DCB data from the IONEX/F-PPP file for ionosphere data respectively (if DCB data is available from these files).
When receiver position is set to 'calculateUSER' or 'calculateRINEX', initial coordinates no longer need to be over the Earth Surface.
MEAS message will be printed by default in 'SHOWINPUT' mode (when only an observation file is given).
In SHOWINPUT mode (print only observation data), RINEX station coordinates will not be checked for consistency (as they are not used).
Stanford-ESA initialization is now done outside of SBAS, so it can be used in normal SPP mode (only one measurement used by the filter).
Transmission time of message check in broadcast ephemerides selection is disabled by default in PPP mode.
Taken out degree sign from output messages to avoid text encoding problems.
All input options are now case insensitive.
Updated help messages.
Windows compiled gLAB executable is now optimized (built with '-O3' gcc option) and has the gAGE icon embebbed.
fixed Fixed a bug which made not to save DCB data when it was read from RINEX file with the option '-input:dcb'.
Fixed MEAS message not being printed in the right order in SBAS mode.
Fixed messages for deprecated options not being printed to output file when '-output:file' option was used.
Fixed a bug reading user defined receiver coordinates when receiver position was set to 'calculateUSER'.
Fixed a bug reading SNR threshold from parameters.
gLAB_GUI.py added Added check for X and Y plot ranges in Analysis tab.
fixed Fixed error when checking for a new version. When the current version was greater than the one in the website, it showed the current one as the old one instead of the new one.
notice This will be the last update for this GUI. A new GUI based in Qt will replace this one.
graph.py added Added SBAS plots.
Added option to make a map with the station names in WIR maps mode.
Added many checks to prevent errors from user input.
Added check of X Display in Linux when not saving picture to file.
Added option to change the number of points shown in the label.
Added option to show number of MIs in worst integrity plot with coloured rings, using parameters '--mih' and --miv'.
Added new plot: World maps. Worst Integrity Plots are now a special case for world maps.

filter.c changed 'Elevation too low' SATSEL message is not shown if ephemerides are not available.
added Added quantization check in Stanford-ESA plots generation for points greater than the maximum X and Y. For example, (60,100) and (100,60) with a max X and Y of 50, would both result in the plot in the point (50,50) or (Xmax,Ymax), which made it impossible to distinguish the MI from the non-MI. Now, MI points will result in (Xmax,Ymax) while non MI will result in (Xmax-1,Ymax).

gLAB v3.1.0

New highlighted features:

This is to avoid the problem of not having available SBAS corrections due to ionosphere pierce point fall out the SBAS region during the convergence. This option only has effect when gLAB has to compute the user position without any inital coordinate (RINEX or user input).
  • New options to set the initial coordinate for the user trajectory computation, from the RINEX observation file or by parameter, instead of using the harcoded value of (6378137,0,0).
  • RINEX v2 GLONASS and GEO navigation files are now supported.
  • New option for ignoring transmission time of a broadcast product. This option will make gLAB not to check if the transmission time is before or equal to the current time. This option is useful when comparing broadcast with SP3 orbits. By default it is disabled.
  • Slight computation speed improvement, specially when computing trajectories.
  • Satellite phase center corrections for all constellations are now read and processed.

Modifications and bug fixes:

  • Improved GLONASS and GEO transmission time handling.
  • Fixed a bug that crashed graph.py (the plotting tool), which had appeared in gLAB v3.0.0.
  • Fixed incorrect broadcast block selection when a block with a fixed IODE was requested, and there was more than one block for the same satellite with the same IODE in the navigation file.​

changed GLONASS coordinates and velocity from broadcast products are set now to 0, as they cannot be computed.
fixed Fixed incorrect broadcast block selection when a block with a fixed IODE was requested, and there was more than one block for the same satellite with the same IODE in the navigation file.
output.c changed SATSEL messages may have an '*' if the model will be recalculated before computing the navigation solution (only in SBAS mode).
Modified "Receiver apriori position" INFO message for parameters 'calculateRINEX' and 'calculateUSER'.

gLAB v1.3.1

First public release on 2010/01/22.

Date File name Type Description
2017/04/07 filter.c added Added functions PrefitOutlierDetectorMedian and PrefitOutlierDetectorAbsolute for prefit outlier detection.
gLAB.c added Added parameters for prefit outlier detectors.

Added 'RTCMRinexRover', 'RTCMUSER', 'RTCMUserbaseline', 'RTCMUserRinexRover' and 'RTCMRefRoverUSER' receiver position modes.

'RTCMRinexRover' is for computing the solution error with respect to the coordinates from Rover RINEX file.

'RTCMUSER' is for computing the solution error with respect to the user defined coordinates.

'RTCMUserbaseline', 'RTCMUserRinexRover' and 'RTCMRefRoverUSER' are equivalent to 'RTCMbaseline', 'RTCMRinexRover' and 'RTCMUSER' but reference station coordinates are user defined. These last three modes only work when reference station data is from a RINEX file.

Added check for valid receiver position user setting. In SPP/PPP/SBAS it will show an error instead of continuing in 'calculate' mode, and in DGNSS it will show an error instead of continuing in SPP mode.
changed When comparing orbits with two SP3 or SP3+CLK files, gLAB will compute the max data gap for each precise product file instead of using the value computed from the first precise product file read in both files.
If user forced NPA processing mode in parameters, gLAB will now enter the function to update values for SBAS summary, but all the values will be referred to NPA solution instead of PA.
Updated help messages with new parameters and info about prefit outlier detection.
fixed Fixed bug where sometimes gLAB would crash or show an incorrect error message (depending if it were  in comparison or navigation mode) when an invalid RTCM file was given.
gLAB_GUI.py added Added field 32 to OUTPUT message tooltip.
graph.py added Added option to set user defined ticks (for both X and Y) in standard plots.
Added option to adjust figure to margin, so there is the minimum white space margin left. This option applies to all modes except for world maps or integrity ratio maps.
fixed Fixed all errors when executing graph.py with python3.
input.c  fixed Fixed rare bug that made gLAB crash when handling end of file with SBAS files. It ocurred sometimes when the SBAS data file ended before the observation file.
Fixed incorrect SBAS message time handling when the RINEX-B file did not have the 0.1 second (signal travel time) in the timestamp. This made gLAB use SBAS messages from the future.
Fixed false detection of missing SBAS messages when reading SBAS files with more than one GEO.
output.c added Added INFO line for prefit outlier detectors.
Added INFO line for N-consecutive check.
Added fields to last line of SBAS summary for Stanford-ESA values (this fields will appear even if Stanford-ESA has not been enabled).
Added line "Total epochs processed with NPA solution" in SBAS summary. It will only appear if mode switching has been enabled.
changed Fields 'MIs', 'Hor_MIs' and 'Ver_MIs' in SBAS summary now will always show the MIs for all in view satellites combination, as there are now new fields for Stanford-ESA MIs values.
Changed measurement name in converted RINEX files from RTCM v3 from 'C1W', 'L1W', 'S1W', 'C2W', 'L2W', 'S2W' to 'C1P', 'L1P', 'S1P', 'C2P', 'L2P', 'S2P' respectively.
If user forced NPA processing mode in parameters, all values in SBAS summary will be referred to NPA.
fixed Fixed incorrect year formatting in writing a EMS file when SBAS messages were read from a RINEX-B file.
preprocessing.c added Added function look4interval to compute the file sampling rate.
Added N-consecutive check in cycle-slip detectors. This forces N consecutive samples of a satellite before it can be used. This check only applies to files with sampling rate below 15 seconds (data rate is detected automatically). It is a very simple yet very effective way to discard outliers in RINEX measurements.
fixed Fixed bug in function checkPseudorangeJumps which was mixing Rover measurements with reference station measurements in DGNSS mode, thus detecting false code/carrier phase inconsistencies.
