Contributing Organizations

Increasing interest in the IGS, expanding GPS applications, and most recently the Pilot Project for the Densification of the IGS, have increased the number of agencies who contribute to the IGS on a regular basis. These agencies are jointly responsible for contributing to the international success of the IGS, and it is only through their dedication, resources, and participation that the IGS continues to thrive.
