Abstract. Beidou high-precision reference station network in Beibu Gulf of Guangxi consists of five parts, namely Beidou reference stations, the data processing system, the operation and service platform, the data broadcast system and user terminals. It is an important infrastructure for the construction of the China-ASEAN Information Harbor. Since its operation, the system has contributed significantly to the industrial development in Guangxi and the mass application of Beidou. This paper focuses on the operation of Beidou high-precision reference station network in Beibu Gulf of Guangxi from the perspectives of performance, navigation and positioning accuracy, application experience, etc. Experimental results demonstrated that: in the area of Beibu Gulf of Guangxi, the application of Beidou Navigation Satellite System (BDS) has significantly increased the number of satellites observed and enhanced the spatial accessibility of the system. The percentage of fixed solutions in the spatial accessibility test of the system was about 87.3%; the network-wide time availability within the effective coverage of the system was 92.7%; the internal accordant accuracy of points in Beibu Gulf BDS was 37.7% and 33.3% higher than the dual constellation system (GPS+GLONASS) in the horizontal and the vertical directions respectively, and the average external accordant accuracy was 20.60% higher than the dual constellation system in the horizontal direction (equivalent in the vertical direction). This paper objective reflected the present construction and utilization situation of Beidou high-precision reference station network in Beibu Gulf of Guangxi, which would be of great significance to the construction and development of the Beidou system.
