ESA Award

During the “6th International Colloquium on Scientific and Fundamental Aspects of GNSS / Galileo” organized by the European Space Agency (ESA), a poster entitled “GOVUS: a new on-line service for Galileo, GLONASS, BeiDou and QZSS orbit validation using Satellite Laser Ranging data” by Radoslaw Zajdel, Krzysztof Sosnica, Grzegorz Bury and Kamil Kazmierski won the first price.

The poster described the functionality of the service. More information about the service can be found in the recent paper in Remote Sensing.


New publication

Our new publication appeared in GPS Solutions on November 7, 2017. The paper entitled “Quality assessment of multi-GNSS orbits and clocks for real-time Precise Point Positioning” is written by Kazmierski Kamil, Sośnica Krzysztof and Hadas Tomasz. The article can be found here. We wish you a pleasant and informative reading!

Media about us

The RMF-FM station visited Wroclaw University of Environmental and Life Sciences to discover our incredible place.

The results are available at website (Polish language only).

Open Position

UPDATE. Open position for associate professor at the Institute of Geodesy and Geoinformatics, has been filled. We would like to welcome Dr. Maya Ilieva, she is an expert in SAR processing for geodynamics and will work on the anthropogenic induced earthquakes in the Upper Silesia region. Congratulations.

New publication on Galileo satellites

Today, a new article in Journal of Geodesy has been published concerning the Galileo constellation, including the satellites launched accidently into highly eccentric orbits: “Validation of Galileo orbits using SLR with a focus on satellites launched into incorrect orbital planes”. The article has been published as on Open access and can be downloaded from the Springer website:

Prestigious START stipend awarded to Karina Wilgan

One of our team member, Karina Wilgan was awarded prestigious START stipend from Foundation for Polish Science, “Supporting the best, so that they can become even better”. This award is handed in recognition of exceptional research performance in geodesy and cartography. Karina’s research is linked with GNSS positioning and troposphere modelling. This year over 100 stipends where awarded. Congratulations!


We are very pleased to inform that on the basis of the decision of the International Laser Ranging Service (ILRS) Governing Board and the ILRS Analysis Standing Committee, our Institute officially gained a status of the ILRS Associate Analysis Center. We provide operational products based on the microwave and laser observations to new GNSS systems, such as GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou and QZSS. The results are available in the on-line service:

New JGR publication

A new publication co-authored by our member appeared in Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres on 2nd March, 2017. The paper is entitled “An evaluation of real-time troposphere estimation based on GNSS precise point positioning” by Ding et al. This work covers the issue connected with the real-time GNSS meteorology improvement using multi-GNSS observations. An operational real-time system for zenith troposphere delay estimation was established in the paper. The presented system uses a modified version of PPP-wizard software. The results show that the ambiguity resolution improves the accuracy of ZTD while initialization time is shortened by GNSS observations. The full bibliography note can be found in the publications tab. We wish you a pleasant and informative reading!
