The Canadian Geodetic Survey (CGS) of Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) introduced the CSRS-PPP online positioning service in 2003. Since that time well over 2 million GNSS observation files have been submitted to the service and processed using the GPSPACE software package. This software has proven to be very reliable and has undergone many incremental improvements over the past 15 years. Nevertheless, in order to keep pace with the rapidly evolving changes in GNSS signals, constellations, and processing options, the NRCan CSRS-PPP service will be undergoing a major upgrade in July 2018. At this time GPSPACE will be replaced by a modern and flexible positioning software called SPARK. This webinar presented by the Canadian Geodetic Survey will describe the upcoming changes to the CSRS-PPP service, and how these changes may both benefit and impact users.
Brian Donahue has worked with the Canadian Geodetic Survey, Natural Resources Canada for the past 20 years. He is currently the team leader of the Geodetic Integrated Services Unit which is responsible for the operation of the CSRS-PPP service.
