Abstract

In this paper the Grid correction method (GRID) was proposed for the first time as an interpolation method of the double differenced ionospheric delay for GNSS Network RTK. The Distance Interpolation Method (DIM), Linear Interpolation Method (LIM), the Kriging Interpolation Method (KRG) and the GRID are described and compared in the aspect of their interpolation performance. It was shown in the tests that the GRID interpolation method performed better than the other three. For mid-latitude stations, its interpolation accuracy is better than 1 cm, and the extrapolation accuracy is better than 2 cm. Furthermore, the GRID method can achieve a good performance even at low satellite elevation, and also its interpolation accuracy can be better than 2 cm at low latitudes.
