What is the definition of RTK?

Stands for real-time kinematics. RTK is a technique used to enhance the accuracy and precision of position data derived from satellite-based positioning systems such as global navigation satellite systems (GNSS). Error correction data used by RTK enabled receivers is derived from additional hardware / services, such as ground base stations and can improve accuracy to 0.03 m.
