Institut Geographique National Global Data Center, France, International GPS Service
Data Center Description
The International GPS Service (IGS) operates a Global Data Center of the IGS since the Test Campaign of 1992.
A global data center is committed to archive and make available the IGS data and products.
The activity is infact two-folded : gather and distribute the files needed by the analysis centers of the IGS, and collect and distribute the whole set of products, data and ancillary information to GPS users.
The IGS officially started in 1994 and even earlier in pilot mode , this is why the historic information accumulated since then is archived at the global data center and made available along with the current data to the GPS users community.
