INDIGO: Inter-Service Data
Integration for Geodetic Operations
INDIGO was proposed to (and selected by) NASA
under a Cooperative Agreement Notice entitled, "Earth
Science REASoN - Research, Education and Applications Solutions
Network-- A Distributed Network of Data and Information Providers
for Earth Science Enterprise Science, Applications and Education."
INDIGO provides support for the central offices of the International
GNSS Service (IGS, formerly the International GPS Service), International
Laser Ranging Service (ILRS), and International
VLBI Service for Geodesy and Astrometry (IVS), as well
as the Crustal
Dynamics Data Information System (CDDIS) data archive
system, to develop information systems which enable the simultaneous
use of multiple space geodetic techniques for earth science.
The data and products from these services is made possible
by the many worldwide agencies that utilize their own resources
to collaboratively create them. Information about the participating
organizations is available at the Service links above.
INDIGO development takes place at both the Jet
Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology,
and NASA's Goddard
Space Flight Center.
INDIGO works closely with the International
Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service (IERS) and
Geodetic Observing System (GGOS), and intends to develop
systems which are extensible, to allow other space geodetic
techniques to participate.
More information and links will be made available as INDIGO
services are rolled out.
