(Our apologies for multi cross-posting. Please, disseminate among your colleagues)

A three-day *GipsyX* course will be offered at the Space and Earth Geodetic 
Analysis Laboratory (SEGAL), University of Beira Interior, in Covilha, Portugal 
between September 5-7, 2018.

*GipsyX* has now replaced GIPSY-OASIS as JPL's (Jet Propulsion Laboratory) 
flagship GNSS data analysis software. This course will cover the fundamentals of 
using the *GipsyX* software package to perform static and kinematic precise 
point positioning of terrestrial stations from GNSS data. The class will be 
presented using hands-on processing of GNSS data by each participant, with an 
emphasis on GPS data. Class presentations will walk through specific examples to 
derive GNSS-based observations of station position, clock, and troposphere. At 
least one exercise using combined Beidou, Galileo, GLONASS, and GPS data will be 
presented. The presentations will be centered around *GipsyX’s* primary user 
interface for GNSS-based precise point positioning, along with a discussion of 
the core software and analysis tools. Strategies and options for achieving 
optimal positioning accuracy with GipsyX will be discussed, including data 
editing, troposphere modeling, antenna calibration, loading, and GipsyX’s single 
receiver ambiguity resolution capability using JPL’s GNSS orbit and clock 
products. Participants will have an opportunity to process both course-provided 
data and samples of their own data (should they choose to bring their own data, 
e.g. RINEX files).

User resources such as the GIPSY Forum and GIPSY Licensing will also be highlighted.

1) Working experience with Unix/Linux operating systems. GipsyX consists of 
software modules that are executed on the Unix/Linux command line.
2) General knowledge of the fundamental principles of the Global Positioning 
System and usage to perform precise positioning.
3) General knowledge of geodetic phenomenon that affect station motion and GNSS 

Instructor: Members of JPL’s GIPSY Team
Language: Class will be in English

Date and Location:
The class will be held for three days, September 5-7, 2018, at the Space and 
Earth Geodetic Analysis Laboratory (SEGAL), University of Beira Interior, in 
Covilhã, Portugal. More information on the location and registration information 
is available at http://segal.ubi.pt/GipsyX2018/

Registration Information:
An application to participate in this class must be submitted by July 4, 2018. 
See http://segal.ubi.pt/GipsyX2018/index-3.html for the registration process. 
Confirmation of participation will be provided 2-3 weeks after the registration 
Participation in the class is then limited to those applicants that receive a 
confirmation of participation. The class will be limited to no more than 25 
participants. While preference will be given to licensed GIPSY users, a GIPSY 
license is not required of participants. Since class size is limited, confirmed 
participants should be committed to attend the class.
