Summit Camp GPS Survey System

UNAVCO and CH2M Hill Polar Services operate a GPS system at Summit Camp, Greenland in support of National Science Foundation sponsored research. The system provides centimeter level differential corrections to properly equipped users in the vicinity of Summit Camp. The equipment may be used for post-processed static and kinematic surveys, as well as real-time (RTK) surveys, simplifying many GPS survey tasks that would otherwise require time consuming collection and post-processing of data. The system is not compatible with hand-held GPS navigation receivers.
