EPOS GNSS Thematic Core Service Portal

Take-off page for GNSS websites from EPOS Project

EPOS GNSS Thematic Core Service is organising an Webinar on 18 & 19 January 2021. Everything you wanted to know about GNSS but were afraid to ask.

What is EPOS for…

The European Plate Observing System (EPOS) simplifies the integrated use of data, data products, and facilities from distributed research infrastructures for Solid Earth Science in Europe.

TCS GNSS Data and Products

The mission of the GNSS Thematic Core Service (TCS) is to provide, through the European Plate Observing System (EPOS), access to GNSS data, metadata, products, and software in support of the Solid Earth Sciences. To achieve this goal, EPOS GNSS:

  • facilitates access to relevant and validated GNSS data, metadata, and data products
  • coordinates the archiving of relevant GNSS data, metadata and data products
  • promotes best practice for GNSS station operation, data quality control and data management
  • maintains and distributes open source software for GNSS data, metadata and product discoverability
  • maintains and develops GNSS data products

These efforts are done in close partnership with the geodetic GNSS community represented by EUREF, the IAG sub-commission for the European Reference Frame.

Open source platform GLASS – The EPOS Thematic Core Service GNSS Data and Products has developed an open source platform, called GLASS, to store and disseminate data and metadata from GNSS stations operating in Europe. In collaboration with EUREF, various GLASS nodes are linked together to provide a single point of access through web portals to: validated GNSS station metadata, the GNSS data itself and derived GNSS products such as position time series, velocities and strain rate maps.

GNSS Portals

a new way of accessing GNSS data and products for Solid Earth Science researchers

The portal enables access to the GNSS observations and products. Graphical interfaces enable station visualization and multiple queries over stations and associated metadata allowing users to retrieve the desired information. A documented Application Protocol Interface also exists for accessing the data and products.
GNSS Products Portal – The portal enables access to the GNSS observations and products. Graphical interfaces enable station visualization and multiple queries over stations and associated metadata allowing users to retrieve the desired information.
This an e-infrastructure to store and disseminate GNSS data and products from existing Research Infrastructures. The portals store the EPOS stations metadata and enables access to the GNSS observations and products.
Data Gateway Portal This is an e-infrastructure to store and disseminate GNSS data and products from existing Research Infrastructures. The portal stores EPOS stations metadata and enables access to the GNSS observations and products.
M3G is the portal where operational centres (which operate the GNSS stations) can upload information about the type of instrument and antenna they are using, when it was installed, which type of receiver, contact information, name of station and network etc.

Virtual Machine – To distribute the software to the various partners, the UBI team has put together a virtual machine, or simply VM, with most of the software that all partners have been developing pre-compiled and installed.
