SIRGAS Analysis Centre at DGFI-TUM

The Deutsches Geodätisches Forschungsinstitut der Technischen Universität München (DGFI-TUM) has been involved in the SIRGAS research activities since the establishment of SIRGAS in 1993. DGFI-TUM coordinated the SIRGAS GPS campaigns of 1995 and 2000 and acted as an analysis centre of both campaigns contributing to the final solutions known as SIRGAS95 and SIRGAS2000. In June 1996, DGFI-TUM established in agreement with the International GNSS Service (IGS) the IGS Regional Network Associate Analysis Centre for SIRGAS (IGS RNAAC SIRGAS) and assumed the responsibility of processing the SIRGAS continuously operating network in a weekly basis. This responsibility also included the computation of cumulative (multi-year) solutions and surface velocity models for SIRGAS (known as VEMOS) to monitor the kinematics of the SIRGAS reference frame. Since 2008, when different SIRGAS analysis centres were established under the responsibility of Latin American agencies, DGFI-TUM has been responsible for the combination of the individual solutions as the main input for the determination of multi-year solutions and surface deformation models, which continue being a major contribution of DGFI-TUM to SIRGAS.

DGFI-TUM hosted the SIRGAS portal between July 2007 and July 2021, when the SIRGAS Executive Committee decided to move the SIRGAS web site to All official matters related to SIRGAS are available at the new site. In this portal,, we present analysis strategies, research results and science data products generated by DGFI-TUM as a SIRGAS Analysis Centre.
