Good day all
I am not a surveyor but I play with GPS and specifically precision low cost units for precise positioning and navigation over dangerous terrain or for placement and remote control of machinery.
The question that I have is how is the baseline between the Base and Rover established (calculated)when RTK is in progress? Is it the horizontal distance or is it the hypotenuse?

8833270458?profile=RESIZE_710x

 

In the above I have a Base at point A that is 10 meters away from the Rover at point B and it is also 10 meters higher. The receivers are precisely placed as indicated above.
What distance is calculated by the GPS as the Baseline?

Thank you

Sincerely

Anton
