Python bindings for Jason Positioning-as-a-Service: Rokubun GNSS processing engine in the cloud.

Project description

Python SDK for Jason GNSS Positioning-as-a-Service

Jason GNSS Positioning-as-a-Service is a cloud-based positioning engine that uses GNSS data. One of the main features of this service is that offers an API so that users can automatize the GNSS data processing without the need to access the front-end.

The online documentation of the service can be found here.

To install the package:

pip3 install jason-gnss

Note that this SDK supports only Python 3.x.


It is important that you have the JASON_API_KEY and JASON_SECRET_TOKEN environement variables. These can be fetched by accessing your area in the Jason PaaS and then going to My Account -> API Credentials.

Use the package as an SDK

The package is basically a library that can be embedded into your Python scripts

import jason_gnss as jason

# Submit a process without waiting for it to finish (fetch it later)
# ({'message': 'success', 'id': 3505}, 200)

# Get the status of your process. The documentation of the return can 
# be found in the Jason online documentation
process_id = 3505
# ({'process': {'id': 3505, ...}, 200)

# Download the results file for a given process that you own
# '/jason_gnss/'

Command line tools

The package has also a command line tool so that you can use it out-of-the-box. The following examples illustrate how to use it.

export JASON_API_KEY='<jason-api-key>'
export JASON_SECRET_TOKEN='<your-private-jason-user-token>'

# Get the help
jason -h

# Process a rover file
jason process test/jason_gnss_test_file_rover.txt

# Process a rover file and adding a base station file as well
jason process test/jason_gnss_test_file_rover.txt test/jason_gnss_test_file_base.txt

# Perform a PPK processing specifying a rover, base file as well as the location
# of the base station
jason process test/jason_gnss_test_file_rover.txt \
              test/jason_gnss_test_file_base.txt \
              --base_position 41.809142804  2.163228514  936.01730

# Get the status of a process
jason status process_id

# Fetch the results file for a given process id
jason download process_id

# Convert a file to RINEX 3.03 format
jason convert test/jason_gnss_test_file_smartphone.txt

The arguments of the command line tools follow the docopt

Docker execution/development

It is recommended that you use docker to execute or work with this package. This repository contains both a Dockerfile as well as a docker-compose.yml to help you with this.

Follow these instructions:

# Command to build the image
docker-compose build

# Start the container with the package loaded with the command
docker-compose run jason_gnss

Once inside the container:

# Install the package
python install

Now, while in the container, you can issue commands in the prompt or within the Python console.

API Key and secret token

If you are using docker-compose, we recommend that you store your authorization keys in a file .env and run the Docker container via the command docker-compose run jason-gnss. With this, your credentials will be loaded in the container and the Jason tools will be ready to use without the need to declare these variables.
