Evaluation Copy of SNIP

To begin, download the evaluation edition above,
Select a model to use (below) when you have evaluated SNIP‘s abilities.

Each download release contains the full functionality of the SNIP NTRIP Caster. SNIP allows multiple unregistered evaluation periods of up to one hour to fully test its NTRIP Caster abilities in the Basic model mode.  The Basic model allows up to 8 different data streams of various types, unlimited client connections, full data logging and various visualization models and RTCM3 decoders.  The Basic model also allows operating a single NEARest Base Station network and provides support for using pre-NTRIP devices.  Various NTRIP Client logging and mapping functions are provided as well.  After the evaluation period, corrections data will no longer be served until SNIP is restarted. Users can complete an online registration and continue to use SNIP for free in the Lite mode with three active streams. Other models allow more streams and more functions.

  • Most Small shops often start with the Basic model until their network needs grow.

See the pricing table for further details on models of SNIP intended for modest and larger network needs.  The Basic model supports more control and reporting features and up to 8 different data streams, and the Pro model provides a limit of 30 different streams. The Enterprise edition allows hundreds of streams (and provides other unique stream features with special arrangements).  Additional streams can be added to each package as required.  All models support essential core functions such as unlimited NTRIP Client user connections, logging features, FTP backup, and basic navigational graphical views.  All SNIP models support several different stream types – thereby allowing you to create whatever network of corrections is required.  Purchasers of SNIP are granted lifetime upgrades as new releases are released.

  • If you are setting up a single base station, the Lite model may be ideal.
  • If you have an older GNSS Base Station you need to forward to SNIP (or any other Caster),
    the Lite model is ideal.

The Lite model of SNIP is free for both commercial and noncommercial use but requires on-line registration, performed from within SNIP itself.  The Lite model is an ideal solution for those who need a robust NTRIP Caster for only for one or two reference stations.  However the Lite model provides far fewer features beyond those of a professional grade NTRIP Caster like our Basic and Pro models.


Once you download SNIP and install it on your target machine, evaluate it for a while and then it is best to register it. The SNIP tool is initially not registered and requires a license file to enable various features. It will start in an evaluation mode, running for a period of one hour each time you start it. In order to register in any mode but Lite, you will require a registration key. Use the pricing table page and the Checkout button to obtain a suitable registration key for your use; this key will also be emailed to you.
