Abstract


The European Project EUPOS (European Position Determination System) was successfully initiated ten years ago, in March 2002, at the Berlin conference organised by the Berlin Senate Department of Urban Development. The project consists in establishment of multifunctional satellite reference stations in Central and Eastern European countries. As in April 2012 20 European and West Asiatic countries intend to participate in the project. One common project standard set is observed by all countries.

In the presentation there will given some details concerning organisation of the project, up to now gained experiences and cooperation with other scientific organisations.
