UNAVCO Resources: Data Processing Software

Data Processing Software

Several software packages to process precise GPS/GNSS data for research applications have been developed by different international research groups and commercial organizations. The availability of executable code, documentation, and user support varies with the individual development group. This page provides links to three of the major groups providing some level of support for the designated processing software packages and to the two commercial software packages available on loan through UNAVCO.

Can GAMIT/GLOBK process the data collected for both GPS signals and GLONASS signals. As we find these two type of satellites uses two different frequency of the wave to transmit the information. If we can how if not why ? Pls this is my querry thanks
