Innovations by the UNAVCO Community Over Three Decades Abstract


  • UNAVCO, the facility and community, has been at the forefront of geodetic technology and geodetic data for basic research and broader impacts for over three decades. The consortium was among the earliest adopters of new commercial GPS receivers for precise positioning with the nascent GPS constellation. Since 1984, UNAVCO has been involved in innovations in instruments, monuments, power supplies, communications, hardware, software, data services, data products and especially advances in science. This presentation will discuss the breadth of the innovations and the value of these innovations to the community and society.
