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.
