IceBridge GPS L0 Raw Satellite Navigation Data, Version 1

The NASA IceBridge GPS L0 Raw Satellite Navigation Data (IPUTG0) data set contains GPS readings, including latitude, longitude, track, ground speed, off distance, Positional Dilution of Precision (PDOP), GPS height, easting, northing and time taken over Antarctica using the Trimble Trimflite differential GPS Navigation System. The data were collected by scientists working on the Investigating the Cryospheric Evolution of the Central Antarctic Plate (ICECAP) project, which is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) with additional support from NASA Operation IceBridge. The data are stored in ASCII text format and are available for periodic, ongoing campaigns from 2009 to the present via FTP.
