Filter tab

From the Filter tab you can filter GPS data to only show more accurate measurements or just to reduce the number of points used in the final KML file.

You can choose to apply these filters to either or both Usage Log data and Survey Measurements.

  • Minimum Precision filter

This filter is based on the Dilution of precision (DOP) as measured by the GNSS module used.

  • Minimum Satellite

This filter will ignore all readings where the number of satellites is lower than the number selected.

  • Sampling Rate

This filter is useful to reduce the number of points used in a KML file generated by the Usage Log viewer. For example choosing 10 will only use one point every 10 so if exporting 10 minute of data this will only produce a KML file with 60 markers (points), instead of 600.
