Some notes about accessing the data:

In the "Rad Program - radar" folder there is an exe file that allows you to read the radar files.

The "Raw" folders contain the radar data that you need the above exe for.

The GPS data came from a Leica device - and you may need software from Leica to read it. The appropriate program was called SKI. Tasmanian University surveying group may still have access to it - Rachel Manson or Chris Watson. However, the outputs from the GPS data are held in the velocity files anyway.
