IBGwwwwS.SNX.gz – loosely-constrained covariance matrix of the weekly combination (position of all stations are a priori constrained with a 1 meter sigma).

ibgaaPwwww.snx.gz – IGS constrained covariance matrix of the weekly combination (IGS stations are constrained with a 0.0001m sigma).

ibgaaPwwww.crd – weekly coordinates of the IGS-referenced stations.

IBGwwwwS.SUM – combination report.

Weekly combination solutions area available on:

The steps accomplished by the SIRGAS Combination Center – IBGE to determine the combined solutions are:

  1. Analysis of individual solutions;

  2. Elimination of individual solution constrainers;

  3. Individual solutions are constrained to the IGS network through fiducial stations:

  4. Combination of individual solutions referenced to IGS;

  5. Comparison of individual solutions combined in step 4. Stations with residues larger than 10mm in N-E and/or larger than 20mm in U not eliminated from the individual solution. Steps 3, 4 and 5 are iterative;

  6. Determination of the scale factor;

  7. Calculation of the weekly loosely-constrained solution (position of all stations are a priori constrained with a 1 meter sigma – IBGwwwwS.SNX) ;

  8. Calculation of the combined solution referenced to IGS network. This solution contains the coordinates used in practical applications.
