DATA APPLICATIONS

(15 products total)

Application Description
AUSGeoid09 Application
The national AUSGeoid09 grid file, state files and 1:250,000 map sheet files can be downloaded from Geoscience Australia's ftp server. These files can be used to compute AHD heights in real time when used in Real Time Kinematic GNSS receivers.
AUSPOS Application
AUSPOS provides users with the facility to submit dual frequency geodetic quality GPS RINEX data observed in a 'static' mode, to our GPS processing system and receive rapid turn-around Geocentric Datum of Australia (GDA) and International Terrestrial Reference Frame (ITRF) coordinates.
Australian Fiducial Network Coordinates and Mark Descriptions
The Australian Fiducial Network (AFN) consists of eight permanent, continuously operating, Geodetic GPS receivers on the Australian mainland and Tasmania. The network was initially observed during the International GPS Service for Geodynamics (IGS) Epoch '92 campaign, July-August, 1992. The AFN, in conjunction with additional sites beyond the Australian mainland, forms the Australian Regional GPS Network (ARGN).
Calculating Moonrise and Moonset Times Application
Compute Moonrise and Moonset Times To use this facility you need to know the latitude and longitude of the location you want to calculate rise and set times for. There are several ways you can determine this:
Calculating Sun, Moon Azimuth and Elevation
Compute Sun and Moon Azimuth & Elevation To use this facility you need to know the latitude and longitude of the location for which you want to calculate the azimuth and vertical angle. There are several ways you can determine this:
Geographic to Grid Application
Geodetic Calculations - Redfearn's Formulae, Geographic to Grid Given Latitude and Longitude, calculate Easting, Northing, Zone for a Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) projection, Grid convergence and Point Scale Factor.
Grid to Geographic Application
Redfearn's Formula, Grid to Geographic Given Easting, Northing and Zone for a Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) projection, calculate Latitude, Longitude, Grid convergence and Point Scale Factor.
National Geospatial Reference System NGRS Application
The GNSS database contains metadata and data quality statistics for continuous operating GNSS stations in Australia, its Territories and the South Pacific.
OCCAM VLBI Processing Software Applications
OCCAM VLBI Processing Software FTP site Geodetic Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) observations provided the first direct confirmation of tectonic plate motion at the end of the 1980s. Now VLBI observations measure the motions of stations with accuracy better than 1mm/year together with other space geodetic techniques such as Global Positioning System (GPS) and Satellite Laser Ranging (SLR) Analysis.

Vincenty Direct Application
Geodetic Calculations - Vincenty's Formulae, Direct Method Given the latitude and longitude of a point (1) and the forward geodetic azimuth (1-2) and ellipsoidal distance to a second point (2), calculate the latitude and longitude of the second point and the reverse azimuth (2-1).
Vincenty Inverse Application
Geodetic Calculations - Vincenty's Formulae, Inverse Method Given latitude and longitude of two points, calculate the ellipsoidal distance and forward and reverse azimuths between the points.
Sunrise, sunset and twilight times application
Computes sunrise, sunset and twilight times using the National Gazetteer of Australia.
"As the Cocky Flies" Distance Calculator application
As the Cocky Flies will calculate the distance between two places in Australia. This query searches the Gazetteer of Australia 2008 Release, which is a compilation of over 310 000 geographic names in Australia provided by members of the Committee for Geographic Names in Australasia.
