In a collaborative effort with the regional sub-commissions within IAG sub-commission 1.3 “Regional Reference Frames”, the IAG Working Group (WG) on “Regional Dense Velocity Fields” (see http://epncb.oma.be/IAG) has made a first attempt to create a dense global velocity field. GNSS-based velocity solutions for more than 6,000 continuous and episodic GNSS tracking stations, were proposed to the WG in reply to the first call for participation issued in November 2008. The combination of a part of…

IAG WG SC1.3 on Regional Dense Velocity Fields: First Results and Steps Ahead
TLDR
Several newly reprocessed global and regional cumulative position and velocity solutions were submitted to the Working Group to find a consensus on discontinuity epochs for stations common to several networks and were restricted to contain only the core networks over which the analyst has full control so that ITRF2008 discontinuities could be applied.

Fixed point theorems of GPS carrier phase ambiguity resolution and their application to massive network processing: Ambizap
TLDR
Ambizap is an O(n) algorithm designed to give results that closely approximate full network AR, and together with PPP, enables rapid, multiple reanalysis of large networks and facilitates the addition of extra stations to an existing network solution without need to reprocess all data.

Precise point positioning for the efficient and robust analysis of GPS data from large networks
TLDR
This work determines precise GPS satellite positions and clock corrections from a globally distributed network of GPS receivers, and analysis of data from hundreds to thousands of sites every day with 40-Mflop computers yields results comparable in quality to the simultaneous analysis of all data.
