NOTICE: To UNAVCO GPS Data Product Users: File Format Change to *.CSV Time Series Files [2015-04-23]

On 28 April 2015 UNAVCO will implement a file format change to GPS station position files in *.CSV
format (e.g., P123.pbo.nam08.csv, P123.pbo.igs08.csv). The primary change is that the N/E/U daily position offsets will now begin at “0.00 mm” for the first epoch in the file. Currently, the N/E/U offsets for the first epoch are the same values reported in the source *.POS file. The actual motion of the station through time relative the reference coordinate will be the same, so the position measurements themselves will be the same as they are now, and will be consistent with previously reported measurements. The only difference is that the first position offset will be 0.00 mm. This format change is being implemented based on user feedback, as having zero values for the first epoch will make the position offsets though time easier for some users and applications. The header will be changed to reflect the new format. Examples of a file in the current format and upcoming format are provided below:
