Actually the software is available (for Windows/Wince only, I'm
afraid). It was done by my colleague Ruizhi Chen and collaborators at
the Finnish Geodetic Institute. The service appears to be available.


Actually we have here at TKK been playing around with GPStk, and trying
(unluckily) to get funding for using an older chipset from Fastrax for
getting our sticky fingers on the carrier phase. That could give
centimetre precision!


(using expensive geodetic receivers)

We would certainly be "in the market" for cooperation on this.
