The International Gravity Field Service - IGFS

IGFS is a unified "umbrella" IAG service, which will: (i) Coordinate collection, validation, archiving and dissemination of gravity field related data (ii) Coordinate courses, information materials and general public outreach relating to the earth’s gravity field, (iii) Unify gravity products for the needs of GGOS – the Global Geodetic Observing System.

The overall goal of IGFS is to coordinate the servicing of the geodetic and geophysical community with gravity field-related data, software and information. The combined data of the IGFS entities data will include both satellite-derived global models, terrestrial, airborne, satellite and marine gravity ...(more)
