Abstract

A GPS network for the southern cone of South America is proposed. Numerical simulation permits to assess a relative precision better than 1 ppm.

Connections with the International Terrestrial Reference System (ITRS) depend on the quality of the fundamental stations, fiducial points, and on the satellite ephemeris used in data analysis. Both items are largely dependent on international cooperation.

Quality of points materialization is emphasized in order to obtain a multipurpose net.
