Demand for AUSPOS Processing System Continues after US Shutdown - 14/11/2013


During the US shutdown, around half of the more than 5,500 GPS datasets processed with the aid of Geoscience Australia’s AUSPOS global positioning system were from institutions and individuals based in the United States. Since that time, almost one third of the 3,200 processing requests have come from North America.

AUSPOS is a service that allows users to submit logged GPS data to Geoscience Australia’s website where it is processed with respect to a global GPS tracking network providing coordinates with centimetre-level or better accuracy. AUSPOS is used extensively by the Australian geospatial, mining and construction industries to establish precise survey control for their projects. It is also widely used in defence and research applications around the world.
