Data for Educators

Looking for interesting GPS data to use in your course? We've worked with educators and scientists to identify GPS stations that illustrate various Earth science processes.

The data are the same quality that scientists use in their research and are in an Excel readable format called CVS. By clicking on the station identifier bubble, students can explore the time series plots, create their own plots from the CVS files, and learn more about each GPS station.

Explore GPS data in our classroom modules and activities. Explore GPS velocity vectors UNAVCO's Velocity Viewer.
