Abstract
A simple way of improving the Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) slant ionospheric correction from Vertical Total Electron Content (VTEC) models is presented. In many GNSS applications, a mapping function is required to convert from VTEC, which may be provided in Global Ionospheric Maps (GIMs), to Slant TEC (STEC). Typical approaches assume a single ionospheric shell with constant height, which is unrealistic, especially for low-elevation signals. To reduce the associated conversion erro...
