GPS correctionA GPS corrects its position using correction data transmitted by an observation base. The GPS will then integrate this information into its positioning calculation to gain precision. The use of several observation bases placed in a network greatly improves the stability of the positioning and its availability.
In agricultureToday, RTK satellite geopositioning correction tools are the basic tools in precision agriculture but also in polyculture-livestock type structures. The offer of precision RTK GPS correction services is expanding more and more: this series of articles allows you to better understand this technology, its challenges and to get a good idea of the possibilities that correspond to you.

Compatibility with all brands
The RTK Orphéon signal is compatible with all brands of equipment used in agriculture. Its availability and reliability also make it comfortable to use on a day-to-day basis, day and night. It becomes a universal tool in farms.
A controlled price
The drop in our prices in 2016 and the now very reasonable cost of our services allow you to access the best of RTK positioning technology and the excellence of our services without having to worry about commissioning or maintenance of a base station.
BenefitsIn your professional practice, you can count on the knowledge, the know-how and the centimetric precision of the Orphéon network to meet your missions and your obligations. The network has been thought out and designed according to the rules of the art, it is constantly monitored and checked regularly. (Orphéon Network).
Everything has been thought out to allow you to benefit from increased productivity.
The Orphéon network accompanies you in your multiple works throughout the year, over the seasons.
Repeatability:The Orpheon network offers you real-time RTK GNSS corrections which are the only corrections whose centimetric precision systematically allows you to return to the same place month after month. With Orpheon, preparation work is reduced to a minimum and you can start working faster. Everything has been thought of to allow you to benefit from increased productivity thanks to RTK autoguiding
Absolute precision:Due to its stability and availability, it is the solution that offers the most possibilities and flexibility in terms of the type of work that can be performed, but also the greatest availability and accuracy of corrections over time, for all the work of the more common to more demanding jobs. Orphéon allows you to obtain precision adapted to each of your needs in all circumstances:
- NRTK: Absolute accuracy of 2 cm.
- No signal drift
- Receipt of instantaneous corrections, no convergence time
National coverage:The Orphéon network covers the entire metropolitan territory, its unique dense network means that you are never more than 30km from a reference base station. The most regular network structure in France

A reinforced structure:
The Orphéon correction service is particularly suited to the needs of agriculture. The network mode makes it possible to receive corrections of excellent quality and to work continuously even if the nearest station is stopped. All of our computer facilities are duplicated in different locations to ensure continuous service.
The addition of the Galileo and BeiDou satellites to the GPS and GLONASS satellites means that you can always count on the constant availability of many additional satellites to bring you real advantages:
- More satellites available to calculate its position
- Precise positioning even in difficult environments (near trees or buildings for example))
- Improved positioning reliability and stability
- Shorter fixing time

Géodata Diffusion First Full GNSS network in France, offers various possibilities of subscriptions or packages adapted to your present and future needs.
The choice of the type of transmission has a major impact on access to the new possibilities offered by the increasingly widespread Internet applications in precision agriculture.
The Orphéon network has for many years been supporting an ever-growing number of farmers and demanding professionals who are satisfied with the quality of our services.
For agricultural work, it is interesting to take an interest in the repeatability of the precision delivered by a correction signal for your guidance systems.
The natural position provided by a GPS alone, gives a good idea of where it is within a few meters, but is not precise enough to allow precision work.
The corrections and precision provided by the Orpheon network can also be coupled with many other geo-localized information for the extended management of your operation.
Although Geodata Diffusion is not intended to sell hardware, we would like to give you a brief overview of the different applications.
The Orphéon network supports you in your agricultural work throughout the year, throughout the seasons.
The use of GPS-GNSS receivers, more and more widespread, is subject to some reception constraints related to certain parameters or phenomena that can affect the quality of the signals and therefore the work carried out.
