Real-Time GPS Data

UNAVCO publicly broadcasts streaming GPS data from a subset of Plate Boundary Observatory (PBO) GPS Network of 1100 stations. Realtime 1-Hz streams from these selected PBO and COCONet stations are available in both BINEX and RTCM (versions 2.3 and 3.1) formats via the Networked Transport of RTCM via Internet Protocol (NTrip).

BINEX is an open-source binary format that contains both standard GPS observable data and other metadata and data timeseries from the receiver. Streaming BINEX data can be translated to RINEX in real time using UNAVCO's teqc utility. The various RTCM formats are typically less comprehensive than BINEX, but RTCM is more common and is translated by most NTripClient software.

Access to real-time streaming data must be requested by emailing rtgpsunavco.org. Please review the UNAVCO Streaming GPS Data Policy as well.
