Applications of the Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) to Earth Sciences are numerous. The International GNSS Service (IGS), a voluntary federation of government agencies, universities and research institutions, combines GNSS resources and expertise to provide the highest–quality GNSS data, products, and services in order to support high–precision applications for GNSS–related research and engineering activities.

This IGS Technical Report 2016 includes contributions from the IGS Governing Board, the Central Bureau, Analysis Centers, Data Centers, station and network operators, working groups, pilot projects, and others highlighting status and important activities, changes and results that took place and were achieved during 2016.
