GEOID+ - Improved Austrian Geoid Solution Combining Terrestrial and Satellite Gravity Data

The main objective of the project GEOID+ is the computation of an improved geoid model for the Austrian territory, as acombined solution from terrestrial gravity field data and satellite-related data from the dedicated gravity field missions GRACE and GOCE, which shall stabilize the solution in the long to medium wavelength domain.

GEOnAUT - The Austrian Geoid 2007

A new Austrian geoid model has been computed as a combined solution of local terrestrial gravity field observations (gravity anomalies, deflections of the vertical, "direct" geoid observations obtained by a difference between geometric heights derived from GPS observations, and orthometric heights derived from spirit levelling), and global gravity field information based on data of the satellite gravity mission GRACE.

GFPF - Gravity Field Processing Facility

Based on the successful work performed in the project GOCEDAPC, the main objective of GFPF is the implementation and integration of a fully operable software system for the processingof an optimum Earth’s gravity field model based on the data of ESA’s satellite gravity mission GOCE (Gravity Field and Steady-State Ocean Circulation Explorer), combining orbit observations derived from GPS satellite-to-satellite tracking and the analysis of the GOCE gravity gradiometer data.

GIOMO - Next Generation Near Real-time Ionospheric Models

The objectives of the GIOMO (next Generation near real-time IOnospheric MOdels) project were the identification and consolidation of improved ionospheric modelling technologies, the software implementation of a selected refined model, and the final integration into the existing OEGNOS (Austrian EGNOS data server) software in order to improve the positioning accuracy for this augmentation service and thus to foster user acceptance.

GMES and VIENNA - City of VIENNA – a "GMES-USER" and/or "GMES-PROVIDER"?

The project analysed to what degree individual municipal departments could take the role of a "GMES-USER" or a "GMES-PROVIDER" and how such a role could efficiently support them in fulfilling their tasks. This was an explorative undertaking, focussing on the GMES Domain Land. It included information gathering, joint learning, technical analyses and a systematic screening of municipal tasks.

GMSM - Global Monitoring of Soil Moisture for Water Hazards Assessment

The overall goal of the GMSM project is to advance the use of soil moisture services based on METOP ASCAT and complementary satellite systems, most importantly SMOS and ENVISAT ASAR, by extending existing products developed at I.P.F. TU Vienna to Africa and Australia, for which extensive calibration and validation activities will be carried out and novel water hazards applications will be developed by the project consortium.

GMSM II - Global Monitoring of Soil Moisture for Water Hazards Assessment

GMSM II was the follow-up of the GMSM activity performed within ASAP 6. It was launched to advance the use of soil moisture services based on EUMETSAT’s MetOp ASCAT sensor and complementary satellite systems. The GMSM II project has successfully accomplished major achievements towards this goal.

GNSSMET-AUSTRIA - GNSS based determination of atmospheric humidity changes and their assimilation into operational weather forecast systems

In the framework of project GNSSMET AUSTRIA the wet part of the tropospheric delay is estimated with a temporal resolution of one hour and an accuracy of better than +/- 1mm PW based on observations of a GNSS reference network covering more than 30 stations distributed over the whole Austrian territory. These values are assimilated within the ALADIN-Austria model operated at the Central Institute for Meteorology and Geodynamics (ZAMG).

go.hiking - Web-based Service Platform for Monitoring and Maintenance of Alpine Hiking Infrastructure, Search&Rescue Spatial Knowledge Base and Info-Desk for Hikers

SatNav devices have been available for mountaineers for a long time. If someone plans a hiking tour, they will look for web-maps showing the region of interest, they want to investigate, the actual state of trails or paths, degree of difficulty, height differences, duration, public transport information, local weather forecast, etc. The most critical content within this list is the state of paths; the rest is somehow linked to commercials. go.hiking will concentrate on the state of paths, on hiking infrastructure.

HERSCHEL/PACS - The Austrian Participation in the ESA-Cornerstone Mission HERSCHEL: On-board Data Reduction and Compression

The Herschel Space Observatory (formerly know as FIRST, theFar Infra-Red Space Telescope), a cornerstone of ESA's Space Horizon 2000 programme, will for the first time facilitate the investigation of the far infrared and submillimetre radio regime of the electromagnetic spectrum, which is not accessible from the ground. In this wavelength range the primary research goals will be in the fields of stellar evolution, development of planetary systems, interstellar matter and the origin of galaxies.
