OPUS-projects: first, run OPUS to harvest all project data OPUS automatically forms sessions from simultaneously observed marks, enabling multi-baseline processing and adjustment of redundant observations. Improved solutions for simultaneous or simple data quality analysis repeated observations harvest data from multiple observers share upload & processing tasks customize your processing using PAGES improve survey accuracy constrain to local networks publishing support (limited)

What’s all that really mean for me? OPUS solutions = pretty good, but each treated as independent and assumes “perfect” CORS. Sessions = simultaneously-observed marks processed together in sessions increases consistency. Adjustments = interlinking sessions through network adjustments increases accuracy. 2013 -08 -14 OPUS Projects 14

Limitations? • Uploads through OPUS-Static. – Dual-frequency. – 2 hrs ≤ data span ≤ 48 hrs (≤ 2 GPS midnights). – Observation interval = a factor of 30 (seconds). • Minimum project size. – None • Maximum project size. – There are practical limits to a project’s maximum size. – About 100 marks in a single session. – Number of data files < a few hundred. 2013 -08 -07 Introduction 20

OPUS Projects Training Because of its increased complexity, training is required to be an OPUS Projects manager. These workshops are usually two day in length and small so that there is ample time for one-on-one interaction with the instructor. Check the NGS training center schedule for upcoming workshops run by NGS. 2013 -08 -14 OPUS Projects 21

Things To Come. OPUS Projects improves because your criticisms and suggestions. Although we can’t act upon every comment, we do appreciate and consider every one. They have and will continue to steered development. Here a few things already in the works: • Allowing data files < 2 hrs in duration. • Better integration with CORS. • Better support for publishing to the NGSIDB. 2013 -08 -07 Introduction 22
