Short Name:

Ground-Based Global Navigation Satellite System Data (1-second sampling, real-time streams) from NASA CDDIS


Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) real-time 1 to multi-second sampled data available from the Crustal Dynamics Data Information System (CDDIS). Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) provide autonomous geo-spatial positioning with global coverage. GNSS real-time data sets from ground receivers at the CDDIS consist primarily of the data from the U.S. Global Positioning System (GPS) and the Russian GLObal NAvigation Satellite System (GLONASS). Other GNSS (Europe’s Galileo, China’s Beidou, Japan’s Quasi-Zenith Satellite System/QZSS, the Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System/IRNSS, and worldwide Satellite Based Augmentation Systems/SBASs) are similar to the U.S. GPS in terms of the satellite constellation, orbits, and signal structure; CDDIS began streaming real-time data from these systems in 2015. The real-time observation data from a global permanent network of ground-based receivers are transmitted from the CDDIS in 1 to multi-second intervals in raw receiver or RTCM (Radio Technical Commission for Maritime Services) format.
