Raw Navigation
Field Navigation Data

The directory rawnav contains the raw navigation that was collected  using a USGS differential GPS system (Ashtech). These files represent the data that was originally recorded on floppy disk aboard ship. The data are in NEMA format. WARNING: These data have not been checked for errors. Use with caution.

To aid viewing of the original raw navigation data, each data entry was reformatted (removing the NEMA codes) by filtering the raw data files through a UNIX awk script. Every navigation fix from the original data has been preserved, however.

The navigation is stored in ASCII files using six fields separated by tabs, with each file representing a separate julian day (i.e. feb04.txt). Navigation fixes are at 10 second intervals. The start and end of each line is marked within each reformatted navigation file. These files are located in the rawnav sub-directory of the nav directory.
