SCEC support to SOPAC for SCIGN These funds for data archive, analysis, and site maintenance will end in 2006, and most probably will not be renewed as SCEC II transitions to SCEC III.
UNAVCO/SCEC support to SOPAC for SCIGN to PBO transition These funds for data archive and site maintenance will taper off in 2006-2007. Half of SCIGN sites to transition to PBO. Other half to be maintained by USGS, SOPAC, and Local Agencies.
NASA/JPL funding to SOPAC This project is directly supporting real-time GPS infrastructure in southern California, has one more year of funding: This project is supporting the development of next-generation SCIGN IT infrastructure, and is a direct benefit to CSRC (not included a similar amount to JPL, which also benefits CSRC):

San Diego County Real Time Network • Total of 22 stations • 7 existing SCIGN stations (3 upgraded) • 4 new sites built by County to SCIGN standards, 20 Hz receivers • 11 PBO stations (6 built) • Seismic/GPS collocation at Monument Peak and Camp Elliott • Using Sheriff’s Dept. and HPWREN communications backbone Map prepared by Ross Carlson, SDDPW Collaborators: San Diego Dept. of Public Works and Sheriff’s Dept., UCSD (ROADNet, HPWREN, SOPAC), PBO, SCIGN, CSRC
GIS Class: UCSD Campus Mapping Project We mapped the main roads on the UCSD/SIO campus with a GPS receiver mounted on truck, positioned in real time with a PDA device with respect to SD Real Time Network.

San Diego County PBO Prototype Five PBO sites in San Diego County will be upgraded to high-rate real-time streaming capability as a PBO prototype - first 2 sites to be upgraded over the next few weeks
Status: Southern California Upgrades Real-time RTCM data are streamed by SOPAC in CSRC Epoch 2004.0 ITRF coordinates, and refer to the geodetic marker. See http://sopac.ucsd.edu/input/realtime/sopacRealTime_ipPorts.txt
Other leveraged funds This long-lived project also funded through the NOAA/JIMO program for SOPAC to compute near-real-time orbits in support of NOAA’s GPS Meteorology program for short-term weather forecasting: Finally, SIO licenses the RTD software package from Geodetics Inc. on an annual basis (since 2003). This is of benefit to the CSRC community, by providing real-time access to data. The same licensing terms are available to SOPAC/CSRC collaborators in California. The only condition is free public access to real-time data.
FY ‘05 Appropriations & FY’05-’06 SOW • Nov. 21, 2004: Received news that FY ‘05 Height Mod funds to California cut by 50% to $500,000. • Dec. 22, 2004: Received FY’05-’06 recommendations of Work Plan Committee (Don D’Onofrio, Chair, Fasha Eskandari, Marti Ikehara, Cecilia Whitaker, Larry Fenske). Included recommendations for projected CSRC budget surplus. • January, 19, 2005: Significant SIO efforts to undo allocation fail, including discussions with various Congressional offices and Director of NOS (Richard Spinrad). NGS agrees to provide full $500,000 to CSRC (no 10% tax) and to consider additional projects up to $100,000. • February 28, 2005: Final SOW and Budget prepared for NOAA ($500,000) and submitted to JIMO. • SIO is trying to leverage the FY’05 shortfall to increase our FY’06 allocation to make up the shortfall, and set a precedent for future years. We are also making a new effort at the state level. • Budget surplus still an outstanding issue
FY’05-’06 Research Objectives • What is the proper observation mix to maintain a modern height network, and how should these measurements be optimally combined? Observation types include continuous GPS (CGPS), field GPS surveys at passive monuments, spirit leveling, and gravity surveys. • What is the proper mix of geoid models and local corrector surfaces, in converting from GPS-determined geodetic heights to orthometric heights? What interpolation methods will provide the optimal corrector surfaces? • Can we apply and enhance modern IT methods to provide timely access to height modernization information? • How does one develop and implement a precise GIS for the purposes of height modernization? • How can real-time (RT) CGPS networks, such as those being created in California, be best used to directly support height modernization and spatial referencing?
