What’s new? GPS and GLONASS data available– You might have to create a link to it Duncan-Parnell has an updated xml list– What does this list do? It has GLONASS data links for states in the south east It has a list of base stations in other coordinates (NAD 83(86) and NAD 83 CORS 96)– Why do you need it? Differential correction moves data to the coordinatesystem of your data. You need to select the base stationthat has the same coordinate system as your data– Back door to access NC and SC servers
