  • GA factsheet on Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR)

  • Geoscience Australia (GA) manages a network of 150 Continuously Operating Reference Stations (CORS) across Australia, Antarctica and the Pacific. In addition, GA supports data archiving and distribution of a further 450 CORS that contribute to the Asia-Pacific Reference Frame (APREF) project. The primary objectives of this network have been to maintain the National Geodetic Reference System and support scientific endeavours. GA is currently shifting the focus of our GNSS networks from a scientific model to one which supports both science and industry. This requires GA to meet higher standards of data availability and accessibility, latency and metadata accuracy. Further to this GA recognises the need to take advantage of Australia¿s unique geographical location and move towards providing access to multi-GNSS data in modern formats such as RINEX 3 and RTCM 3.2 (MSM). This presentation looks at the current state of the Australian CORS network and highlights our planned transition and expected challenges in moving from a scientific model to an operational model supporting modern data format and streamlined metadata.

  • AUSGeoid98 data files contain a 2 minute grid of AUSGeoid98 data covering the Australian region, which you can use to interpolate geoid-ellipsoid separations for the positions required.You can use your own interpolation software, or you can use Geoscience Australia's Windows Interpolation software (Winter). The data files are text files in a standard format that cover the same area as standard topographic map areas. Files covering both 1:250,000 (approximately 100 x 150 km) and 1:1,000,000 (approximately 400 x 600 km) map areas are available. There is a 4 minute overlap on all sides of each area. Data format: AUSGeoid98 data files have a header record at the start of each file, to distinguish them from the superseded AUSGeoid93 data files. AUSGeoid98 data files show the geoid-ellipsoid separation to 3 decimal places, while the superseded AUSGeoid93 data files showed only 2 decimal places. AUSGeoid98 deflections of the vertical were computed from the geoid-ellipsoid separation surface, while the AUSGeoid93 deflections of the vertical were computed from OSU91A.
