EVN-POS - GPS Reference Station Network Lower Austria (EVN-POS)

  2004-09-01 - 2008-01-31

Goal of the project EVN-POS is the set up of a real-time positioning system in Lower Austria based on the satellite navigation systems GPS or GPS+GLONASS. The work covers the search for an optimum geometry of the 12 planned reference stations and the precise survey of these station markers. Coordinates have to be determined in a global (ITRF2000) and a continental (ETRF) reference frame. To realize coordinates in the local Austrian geodetic datum one or more best fitting sets of transformation parameters have to be estimated. On the long run the stability of the station markers has to be tested by processing daily coordinate time series. In addition the use of GNSS observation data and derived tropospheric delay estimates for regional weather forecasts should be investigated.
