My coworker was collecting data by setting up on an unknown point as a base station. He completed the RTK survey and now want to process that data.
Any idea how he may post-process both the base and the rover data?
Thank you for your support.

Thank you for the welcome. Leica CS/GS15 were used as base and rover.
Hello. I think to post process you must do it with the leica geoffice.
Or read the bases again in the field from a known point and then recalculate the points.
Normally post process is used for points in static mode.
In RTK, download it´s made on a ASCII format.
Well , that´s the way i do it.
If it was not a large area survey, he may not have to be concerned with scale factor corrections that could happen with post processing software - depending on the level of accuracy required. As far as rectifying your data to a site for mapping, you'll have to be able to correlate any 2 or more (more is better) of the points shot to point locations on the ground that are known. If he shot points that you can easily find again and measure (physically measure with tape, gun or whatever), that will help.
Anonymous RTK should be pretty good at getting your bearings pretty accurate, but without monuments and/or known points to calibrate on, you're risking horizontal accuracy.
Did he save raw data for post processing, at least at the base?
Is the base an unknown point or a known point of unknown coordinates? (Is it monumented?)
A good solution may depend upon the answers.
can send data in csv file and what process you need
I have done this survey many times. I set up base in an ankown point, make the rtk surveying and then i process base coords in office (from an internet network in greece called Hepos, that gives me rinex data). I processed the base data, then i imported the controller's data and reprocess the rtk data in TBC
