Dear IGS Product Users and Community Members,

The final transition to igs.org from our former site, igscb.jpl.nasa.gov is
now complete.  Please see below for important details:

*Products Previously Obtained from the igscb.jpl.nasa.gov
<http://igscb.jpl.nasa.gov> Mirror are Now Available Only from Data Centers*

Please take a moment to verify that any bookmarks or automatic downloads
set to igscb.jpl.nasa.gov are updated to IGS.org addresses, or to those of
the IGS Data Centers listed below.

IGS GNSS products (i.e., orbits, station positions, EOP, clock solutions)
will no longer be mirrored at the igscb.jpl.nasa.gov.  Please see CDDIS or
one of the other Global Data Centers <http://www.igs.org/about/data-centers>
listed below for the IGS products.  CDDIS has a nice description of the
product layout here

IGS products will now only be available in subdirectories by GPS week at
the following locations:

CDDIS:  ftp://cddis.gsfc.nasa.gov/gnss/products/

IGN:    ftp://igs.ensg.ign.fr/pub/igs/products/

SIO:    ftp://garner.ucsd.edu/pub/products/

*IGS Mailing Lists Have Transitioned*

IGS mailing list <http://www.igs.org/mail> addresses are also changing to “@
lists.igs.org” because of the transition. For example, the old IGSmail
address, IGSMail (at) igscb.jpl.nasa.gov, is now igsmail (at) lists.igs.org.

Please see our mailing list transition guide
<https://kb.igs.org/hc/en-us/articles/115001065292> for details.

*IGS FTP Transition*

Two product directories on the old igscb.jpl.nasa.gov FTP will no longer be
maintained; they are:

·       ftp://igscb.jpl.nasa.gov/pub/product/

·       ftp://igscb.jpl.nasa.gov/pub/glonass/products/

The content in these two product directories can now be found at CDDIS, IGN
and SIO.  Most of the remaining content on the IGS.org <http://igs.org/> FTP
will be maintained as it was before, with

Examples of content that we will continue to maintain at the CB – now on
the new IGS.org <http://igs.org/> FTP – include the following:

·       IGS site logs

·       igs.snx

·       igs14.atx

·       antenna.gra

·       rcvr_ant.tab

Additionally, the maps directory will no longer be updated:

·       ftp://igscb.jpl.nasa.gov/pub/resource/maps/

If you access these or any other IGS products through the Central Bureau FTP
<ftp://ftp.igs.org/>, please check that you are using ftp://igs.org. More
information about IGS FTP sites is available on the IGS Knowledge Base
