May 23 - 25, 2012
UNAVCO, 6350 Nautilus Drive, Boulder, Colorado
Course will begin at 8am on Wednesday, May 23th and will end at 12pm on Friday, May 25th.
This course will cover the fundamentals of using the Jet Propulsion Laboratory's (JPL's) GIPSY/OASIS software package to perform static and kinematic precise point positioning from GPS data. It will include a mix between presentations and hands-on processing of data by participants to derive GPS-based observations of station position, clock, and troposphere. The presentations will be centered around GIPSY's primary user interface for GPS-based positioning, and gradually develop into descriptions of the GIPSY modules that are being executed by that tool. Strategies and options for achieving optimal positioning accuracy with GIPSY will be discussed, including data editing, troposphere modeling, antenna calibration, loading, and especially GIPSY's single receiver ambiguity resolution capability using JPL's GPS orbit and clock products. Participants will have an opportunity to process both course-provided data and samples of their own data (should they choose to bring their own data, e.g. RINEX files). User resources such as software for network processing, GIPSY and QOCA modules for time series analysis, the GIPSY Forum and GIPSY Licensing will also be highlighted.
