gLAB is a software tool suite developed under an European Space Agency (ESA) Contract by the research group of Astronomy and Geomatics (gAGE) from the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya (UPC), is an interactive educational multipurpose package to process and analyse GNSS data.
gLAB performs precise modeling of GNSS observables (pseudorange and carrier phase) at the centimetre level, allowing standalone GPS positioning, PPP, SBAS and DGNSS. Every single error contributor may be assessed independently, which, in turn, provides a major educational benefit. gLAB is adapted to a variety of standard formats like RINEX-3.00, SP3, ANTEX and SINEX files, among others. Moreover, functionality is also included for GPS, Galileo and GLONASS, allowing performing some data analysis with real multi-constellation data.
The gLAB software tool is quite flexible, able to run under Linux, Windows and Mac operating systems and is provided free of charge by ESA Education Office to universities and GNSS professionals.
