Difference between archive/gps/data/ and archive/gnss/data/

by plasagna » Wed Sep 28, 2022 2:21 pm America/New_York

I previously used to get hourly and highrate GPS data via HTTPS from archive/gps/data/, however I recently noticed that the CDDIS GNSS Data Holdings website now recommends archive/gnss/data/. I compared the rinex data from a few stations in archive/gps/data/ to the same day of the year in archive/gnss/data/ and found them to be identical mixed rinex data. I have a few questions.

1. Is the data located in gps/data a direct mirror of gnss/data?
2. Are there plans in the future to discontinue use of gps/data, if so when?

Thanks

To answer your questions:

1. Yes, the data in the directories is the same.
2. There are no current plans to remove the /gps directory.
