Dear colleagues,

We would like to bring your attention to the "Precise Point Positioning
Software Centre" website which has been created under the auspices of
the 'Geomatics for Informed Decisions (GEOIDE) Network of Centres of
Excellence Project 31'. The URL of the website is:


The main purpose of this website is to offer an easy means of comparing
solutions from online PPP applications. Users are invited to send a
RINEX observation file that will be simultaneously processed by three
online PPP applications:

- CSRS-PPP [Natural Resources Canada]
- GAPS [University of New Brunswick]
- Auto-GIPSY [Jet Propulsion Laboratory]

The processing results from all applications are used to automatically
create graphs allowing for an easy comparison of the results. You can
find examples of outputs generated as well as useful information on
interpreting the results in the BExamplesB section of the website. The
website also presents in more details the purpose of this project,
along with some guidelines that need to be respected when sending an
observation file.

Please feel free to use this service and provide us with feedbacks.
