Note:  There are some inconsistencies between the name of the parameters in “List RINEX files search parameters” and “Download RINEX file… “ (e.g., marker). In addition, some parameters in “List RINEX files search parameters” are missing in the service “Download RINEX file…” (ex: there is no way to get the list of networks). 

Note: The “marker” in “Download RINEX” is the 4-char ID value returned when searching for the “station”  parameter in “List RINEX”.

Note : The “List RINEX Files search parameters” also returns information on EPOS-GNSS stations that do not yet provide RINEX data through EPOS.
