GPS Data Processing and Analysis with GAMIT/GLOBK/TRACK

July 8-12, 2013
UNAVCO, 6350 Nautilus Drive, Boulder, Colorado
Course will begin at 09:00 on July 8 and end at noon on July 12.

The workshop will be divided into three parts to accommodate differing levels of experience and both static and kinematic applications. Monday's sessions will be devoted to new users who need assistance with installation of the software and basic processing with GAMIT and GLOBK. Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday will feature lectures on reference frame realization, error analysis, and efficient processing of both continuous and survey-model observations. Thursday and Friday will focus on kinematic measurements and GPS seismology, including real-time processing. Participants interested only in static measurements may wish to remain through Thursday for one-on-one tutoring in a parallel session.

Participants must bring their own laptops running a Unix-type system (Linux, Mac OSX), and are encouraged to install and exercise the software well before the course and to bring their own data sets for tutoring assistance.

Brief Agenda:

  • Mon am: Software installation
  • Mon pm: Standard processing with GAMIT and GLOBK

  • Tue am: Tutorials on GAMIT and GLOBK
  • Tue pm: Reference frames and error analysis

  • Wed am: Data editing and weighting, handling earthquakes
  • Wed pm: Processing large cGPS and sGPS data sets

  • Thu am: Kinematic and short-session static measurements
  • Thu pm: Real-time kinematic processing

  • Fri am: Discussion and tutorials
