How many GNSS stations are used in the SPSLux network and where are they located?

The SPSLux stations receive GNSS satellite data round-the-clock and send it to the authority’s data center for further processing and analysis. The network includes 12 continuously operating reference stations, although some of them are on international territory and managed by other network service providers. Integrating foreign reference station to the SPSLux network increases accessibility for network RTK correction and availability during breakdowns of single stations.

The spatial distribution of the GNSS reference stations is shown in the map below:

As already mentioned, the SPSLux network incorporates foreign GNSS reference stations. Three of them are managed by the German network provider SAPOS (https://sapos.de/), two by the Belgium network manager WALCORS (https://gnss.wallonie.be/walcors.html) and one by the French GNSS network ORPHEON (http://reseau-orpheon.fr/). For further information please contact the appropriate network manager.

A list, containing ITRS, ETRS89 and LUREF coordinates of the SPSLux GNSS reference stations can be downloaded below. The published coordinates refer to the station reference point. Regarding the national GNSS reference station, the station reference point equals the antenna reference point. Antenna reference point and station reference point may vary in case of the international GNSS stations. For further information please refer to the appropriate network manager.
