What is INDIGO?

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.

What *isn't* INDIGO?

INDIGO does not aim to duplicate or obviate other related information systems. INDIGO does not intend to collect the data and products currently available on many archives worldwide at a single point. Rather, INDIGO recognizes that distributed archives do and will continue to exist, and intends to develop systems to enable seamless and streamlined use of these archives. INDIGO will properly credit the sources which make the data and products possible.
