Ground-Based Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) Compact Observation Data (30-second sampling, hourly files) from NASA CDDIS

This dataset consists of ground-based Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) Observation Data (30-second sampling, hourly files) from the NASA Crustal Dynamics Data Information System (CDDIS). GNSS provide autonomous geo-spatial positioning with global coverage. GNSS 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). Since 2011, the CDDIS GNSS archive includes data from 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), which are similar to the U.S. GPS in terms of the satellite constellation, orbits, and signal structure. The hourly GNSS observation files (compact) contain one hour of GPS or multi-GNSS observation (30-second sampling) data in RINEX format from a global permanent network of ground-based receivers, one file per hour per site. More information about these data is available on the CDDIS website at https://cddis.nasa.gov/Data_and_Derived_Products/GNSS/hourly_30second_data.html.
