TEQC (Translation, Editing and Quality Checking) ? The Toolkit for GPS/GLONASS/Galileo/SBAS/Beidou/QZSS Data
Entry ID: UNAVCO_TEQC


Summary
Abstract: Teqc (pronouced "tek") is a simple yet powerful and unified approach to solving many pre-processing problems with GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, SBAS, Beidou-2/Compass, and QZSS data:

- translation: binary data reading/translation of native binary formats (optional RINEX file creation for OBS, NAV, and/or MET files or optional creation of BINEX)

- editing and cut/splice: metadata extraction; editing, and/or correction of RINEX header metadata; or BINEX metadata records; as well as cutting/splicing of RINEX files or BINEX

- quality check: quality checking of GPS and/or GLONASS data (native binary, BINEX, or RINEX OBS; with or without ephemerides)

These three main functions (from which teqc gets its name: translation, editing, and quality check) can be performed altogether, in pairs, or separately.

Translators (with varying limitations*1) are included in the current development for:
