IGS Pilot Projects and Working GroupsThe IGS Terms of Reference (1999) defines Working Groups and Pilot Project as follows:
"A Working Group works on a particular topic related to the IGS components according to goals and schedule specified in the working group's charter. A Pilot Project aims at the development of particular IGS product(s) or service(s) relying on the IGS infrastructure. "
